Storyline

When the Ring of Fire starts heating up with an unprecedented amount of volcanic activity a team of scientists are gathered to prevent a global catastrophe. But one of the scientists realizes early on that the cause of volcanic reactions is most likely due to a secret government operation investigating alternative energy resources from deep within the Earth's mantel. So even though the mission is designed to save the planet, someone has to make sure the government's involvement remains a secret. Written by Sci-fi guy

Luke, my son
12 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Why do I watch such stuff? Is it because these horrible SyFy Channel flicks star TV has beens like Luke Perry? I guess the answer must be yes. The Earth is about to blow up, thanks to some clandestine government experiment, and it is left up to Perry and his team of scientists must save the planet. Luke Perry as a scientist. Ah well, it's good for a laugh. Right from the start, you will know you are in trouble with this one, as it kicks off with some stock footage that doesn't match what the learned military and government heads are describing. If you must watch this tripe, watch for Michael "Worf" Dorn as General Fielding. Talk about being typecast. Try to listen to that oh-so familiar voice and not picture Dorn in his Star trek makeup.
