During the shuttle landing sequence, Maj. Rebecca Childs pulls out a folder which has a complex looking (cardboard) mechanical calculator on the left hand side of the folder. To the right is nothing. A few seconds later, the central part of the mechanical calculator is now blank, whilst there are maps on the right hand side.
The pens and pencils in the center of the folder remain the same.
The center of the calculator remains blank for at least two shots after we first see the complex version. See more »
At the beginning when the Paramount pictures logo is shown there is a transition between the Paramount pictures logo and the film - the camera zooms in on the mountain then starts to move down through the mountain to the core of the earth. See more »
Jon Amiel is a well known and respected director known for his work with actors, so it may come as a bit of a surprise that he wanted to tackle a project like this. And he does say in the 'featurettes' that he wanted this to be a character driven narrative. And if you check the deleted scenes you'll see there was in fact enough material to make it so.
But something happened in the cutting room. The scenes that added depth to the characters were cut, leaving only the vestiges of a run of the mill catastrophe science fiction movie.
And it's wonderful the special effects people are proud of the work they've done but as viewers we're not interested so much in that as we want to have something pleasurable to watch.
And that's where this turkey fails.
