One of my favorite apocalypse movies. It is entertaining, funny and original. The acting is decent and the idea around it is presented in a way that makes you believe it is possible. I am not saying that the Earth's core could stop moving but I am not a scientist and if they think that only a series of underground nuclear explosions could jump start it then who am I to doubt it. They explained why it would work and the technology behind it and that is good enough for me. DJ Qualls' character was really funny and reminded me a lot of many of the computer 'geek' friends that I have that think they are bad ass because they know computers. All I can say is check this one out if you like apocalypse movies.

Jon Amiel had a single film copycat which was well received under his directorial belt. With the current theme, by John Rogers (Cat woman, DUngeons and Dragons), we need imagination. Hence Amiel brings in his ideas of projecting the zoomed version of the earth. With a ship withstanding, extreme temperatures, suit to tolerate atleast 5000 degrees, half of the inner core, it might probably work. I did not even care when those birds were …
