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

Early in the film, the returning space shuttle, Endeavor, is found to be off course over Los Angeles and in imminent danger. At 14:37 the ground controller, Stick (played by Alfre Woodard), says to a subordinate (referring to the shuttle), "They're gonna hit downtown L.A. at 300 knots." Later, @ 15:18, the space shuttle creates a sonic boom while flying over Dodger Stadium. The shuttle would need to be traveling at least 667 knots to exceed the speed of sound or Mach 1. Also the shuttle appeared after the sound of the boom. Flying faster than the Mach 1 would mean the shuttle should have passed overhead before the loud report was heard. 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 »
How do you jump start the Earth's core? Well, if you want to find out (and have a few laughs in between) all you need to do is watch 'The Core'...
Yes, it's stupid, yes, it makes no sense, yes, the science is flawed, and yes, it's impossible. Nevertheless, I have to say I enjoyed watching this movie. It's one of those 'get a beer and some popcorn, turn your brain off and enjoy the afternoon' type of pictures. If you are not pretentious and take this film for what it is, you are more likely than not to enjoy it as I did.
All in all, this is a classic disaster flick, and for a disaster flick, this is above average.
