This one almost seems like an “Armageddon” except the trip isn’t to an asteroid, this one is to the center of the earth. Hmm?

The story goes that the United States developed a super-weapon that could create a mysterious earthquake anywhere on earth. This was great for taking out the enemy, but in doing so it stopped the core of the earth from spinning (who knew it spun in the first place?). So what happens when the earth’s core stops spinning? Well, it seems that now the atmosphere gets all messed up, radiation or something can now get through, and “super storms” start appearing everywhere, destroying everything in their path. So what are we to do? Well duh, we’ve got to start the earth’s core spinning again. How? We build a crazy drilling contraption that will drill down to the core, leave some nuclear explosives, and just like that the earth will be saved.

Now I know the story sounds kinda stupid, but the movie does look like it has a little bit of promise, action, suspense, and a hot-looking Hilary Swank to its credit. I can almost bet someone doesn’t make it back from the trip to the core, but they’ll always be remembered as someone who saved life on earth.

That’s it for this preview! I’m The Dude on the Right!! L8R!!!
