Bill and Jo Harding, advanced storm chasers on the brink of divorce, must join together to create an advanced weather alert system by putting themselves in the cross-hairs of extremely violent tornadoes.
The Earth's core has stopped spinning. Disasters are appearing all over the world: Birds acting crazy, powerful thunderstorms, 32 people die within seconds of each other when their pacemakers quit working. Dr. Josh Keyes and his crew of five (total members: 6) go down to the center of the Earth to set off a nuclear device to make the Earth's core start spinning again or Mankind will perish. Written by
(at around 56 mins) Dr. Zimsky states that he chose the Marianas Trench as the launch location because the crust is thinner there. The Marianas Trench is a subduction zone, where the Pacific plate is being pushed under the Philippine plate. Large amounts of sediments are built up at subduction zones as one plate scrapes the top off the other plate, so the oceanic crust is actually a good bit thicker at the trench. A better location would have been in the middle of a plate, such as near Hawaii. See more »
During the first part of the film's closing credits, the camera zooms out from the Earth as the credits appear. When the film's title appears, the 'O' is actually the earth. The rest of the first part of the closing credits, which is the cast, is just set against a black background. See more »
This was a great movie. It's not meant to be anything meaningful or useful, it's meant to entertain and it does so perfectly. There is quite a bit of humor which makes even the most implausible parts worth watching and extremely entertaining. If you combined the best parts of "Armageddon" (which was wonderful) and the funniest lines from "Evolution" (the one with David Duchovny) you will have this movie.
Yes, it's campy. Yes, the science is noteworthy only for being completely impossible, and YES it is a wonderfully funny and entertaining movie.
So what are you waiting for, go SEE IT!
