Sci-Fi Sunday - The Core

Filed Under Blog, Fun, Movies, Review

I just finished watching The Core, which was a categorically terrible Sci-Fi type of movie. The acting was not very good, the effects were passable but not believable, the plot was thin, the science was atrocious… But it was entertaining, I hate to admit.

I had to suspend disbelief for this flick, and couldn’t keep from the occasional grumble about the unbelievable science. The premise of the movie is:

For reasons unknown, the earth’s inner core has stopped rotating, causing the planet’s electromagnetic field to rapidly deteriorate. Instantly, life around the globe begins to change dramatically.

Scrambling to resolve the crisis, government and military officials call upon a team of the world’s most gifted scientists to travel into the earth’s core. Their mission: Detonate a nuclear device that will reactivate the core and save the world from sure destruction.

I can’t even begin to go into what’s wrong with this plot. But my synopsis of why it was entertaining, and how I knew it would be, is considerably more brief. Within the first 15 minutes of the movie’s beginning, a team of astronauts are forced to emergency land the Space Shuttle Endeavor in a concrete flood-control channel in downtown Los Angeles to avoid plowing into the centre of the city at 300 knots (approx. 345 MPH). Here, I’ll mention that the space shuttle, especially with the incorrect vector, coming in too fast would be travelling much faster than 345 MPH.

But the landing was pretty rad and I knew from that point on that while deftly skirting scientific accuracy, the movie would probably be entertaining - and it was. So if you don’t have anything else to watch, and The Core is on, it’s a pretty fun flick.
