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 35 mins) When Rat is being recruited, he uses a whistle to hack Josh's cell phone, telling him he now has "free long distance for life." However, by the time the movie takes place, not only were all land-line telephone trunk exchanges digital (meaning that temporary free long distance could not accomplished using a 2600 Hertz tone), but any cell phone exchange would be exclusively digital and therefore would not utilize tones as signals to (mechanical) trunk lines. Also, the whistle Rat uses is far lower in pitch than the necessary 2600 Hz. 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 »
A really nice way to spend an afternoon, The Core does not pretend to be a huge Sci-Fi mega movie, but rather a pretty good romp with some pretty nice special effects (the birds, the Golden Gate Bridge, etc.) and even like to poke at itself.
I love Sci-Fi movies where the professor or the hot-shot pilot don't have all the answers and yes, there are holes in this film that you could drive cities through, but really, who cares?
Sit back, munch on that popcorn, sip on that soda, and have just fun with this predictable, simple, yet enjoyable movie.
