Trivia

The Air Force general's stars on his epaulets are not centered on the epaulets, the American flag is on the wrong side of the General's desk, and the "MPs" (who are actual Air Force Security Forces) are wearing the wrong color name and branch tapes on their ABUs. See more »

Goofs

The reversing of the Earth's poles is a well documented fact. A debate as to whether the poles are actually about to reverse might be appropriate, not whether or not the poles will ever reverse. See more »

When will they ever learn
2 November 2009 | by harrybarracudaSee all my reviews

The only redeeming feature of this incredibly poor wannabe clone of "The Core" is they probably threw significantly less money down the toilet.

What a complete load of garbage. I'd rather watch a test card.

If you want details:

The script was appallingly repetitive and naive. The acting was more wooden than a sequoia. The special effects must have cost 90% of the budget. And the budget can't have been that big. The story was thoughtless and should never have made it past a one page sum up. The ending was farcical and predictable.

Oh dear God I could go on, but if I wrote a thousand words tearing this minger to pieces it still wouldn't do it justice.
