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 happening around the globe, including; animals acting in bizarre ways, monstrous thunderstorms. Dr. Josh Keyes and his crew of 5 go down to the centre to set off a nuclear device, hoping to make the core start spinning again, or humanity will cease.Written by
At around the 13 minute mark, while the Shuttle is approaching L.A, the computer shows "Off course by 129.0276 Miles" from Edwards AFB ... in actual fact it's only 83 miles from the Shuttle runway at Edwards to the coast at Long beach, and only about 65 miles to where they touched down on the LA River. (129 miles would be half way between the islands of San Clemente and Santa Catalina.)
The coordinates given to NASA (33 Deg 55' N, 118 10'W) is actually accurate, the section of river going north from near the Long Beach fwy/Glen Anderson fwy junction, but the computer shows 33 Deg 15' N, 118 10'W ... a point 7.5 miles SE of Santa Catalina Island ... IN THE OCEAN. The actual LANDING coordinates would be 34 02'N, 118 13W, since they SOMEHOW seem to be traveling SOUTH when they touch down at that point.
PS. If they were coming from the North (as indicated by flying over Dodger Stadium), then they OVERFLEW Edwards AFB about 1/2 hour before touchdown ... and if they're coming from the South, why didn't they just turn left and land at LAX ... Nice LONG, STRAIGHT, UNOBSTRUCTED runways, with emergency services readily available. (for HARD runways, 2 miles seems to be the length required, SOFT runways [Edwards AFB dry lake beds, White Sands, etc] require 4 miles) 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 »
...it's 10 times better than Armageddon! It really is good. There was a lot of action, it was witty, suspenseful, the music was perfect, and it contained a lot of emotion. Some parts were REALLY sad. I could not take my eyes off the screen for a second!
