'The Core'
(Hilary Swank, Aaron Eckhart / PG-13 / 97 mins / Paramount)

Overview:For inexplicable reasons, the Earth's core has stopped spinning, which throws the world's electromagnetic field all out of whack, leading to massive global catastrophes. It might even result in (get this) a complete planetary collapse. The only hope is a group of "terranauts," led by a geophysics professor (Aaron Eckhart), and their experimental deep-Earth ship, piloted by Hilary Swank.

Verdict: 'The Core' is a deliriously silly, fast-paced B-movie with a hefty budget and a grade-A cast! Easily one of the most preposterous science fiction films ever made, 'The Core' falls soundly in the tradition of glamorous inconsistency that made 70's disaster pictures so much fun! A schlockier 'Armageddon' crossed with 'Fantastic Voyage,' - minus the fun - 'The Core' is way more palatable than most pictures of its ilk due to its keen awareness of its own preposterousness. So long as 'The Core' stays in tune with his high silliness, it's a guilty pleasure for one and all!
