I met Trace Beaulieu down in Florida back in 2004 and he said this would be one movie who would love to take on. I personally never saw this film but I pretty much figured it would be crap so lets go for it.

The "Boys Don't Cry" references alone will get them through most of it. Throw in a few "The Next Karate Kid" lines and BANG, you got yourself a nice little track...

In fact why not just do "The Next Karate Kid"?... or any of them for that matter.

Yeah, this movie was so mind-numbingly stupid that even when I saw a trailer I thought...

...this has to be some kind of childish prank.

Not a geology major, but I took geology, and...the scene with the giant geode...wow.

The only thing worse than the bad science, the stuff they blatanly ripped off of Armageddon, and the other stuff that was way too cliche (black guy dieing to save the rest), was the stupid, unlikable nerd they had that somehow managed to use his 1337 h4x0r status to STOP THE INTERNET!

The core was banking on that irresistable formula of

Pop science + pop culture + pop technology + sub-mediocre plot = film success...

...it's more of a theory than a law...

I love how they invented a new 'indestructible' element that also converts heat into electricity or whatever, save the world with giant nuclear bombs (that always works), and somehow escape the mantle through a RIFT ZONE?!? And there is now way humans can stop the core from rotating with a GIANT SPARK PLUG.

Yeah, this was sort of an Armaggeddon wannabee, just devoid of even the slightest entertainment value...
