Storyline

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.

Goofs

(at around 1h 25 mins) When Zimsky is explaining what destiny is all about, he spells out the project name as an acronym of 'DESTINI', but just two minutes later, and a number of times after, the text that comes up on screen, over a shot of the fictitious location, clearly spells it out as 'DESTINY'.

LOVED THIS MOVIE!
20 October 2003 | by (Kennewick, Washington) – See all my reviews

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!
