Qualls as a super hacker who lives on Xena tapes and hot pockets.
I show it to my high school students every year when we talk about Earth structure and the dynamo in which the rotating liquid outer core generates a magnetic field. Serge Leveque, nuclear weapons specialist. The Core is enjoyable in that bad 50's sci-fi kind of way. To resolve the crisis, Keyes, along with a team of the world's most gifted scientists, travel into the earth's core. Their mission: detonate a device that will reactivate the core.
As the world is struck with a variety of inexplicable phenomena -- attacks by enormous swarms of birds in London, the explosion of the Colosseum in Rome, a potentially deadly malfunction which forces the Space Shuttle into a Los Angeles riverbed, and the simultaneous deaths of 32 people with pacemakers in Boston -- a team of top scientific minds from around the globe is assembled to determine what has thrown the world into such a frenzy. Sit back, munch on that popcorn, sip on that soda, and have just fun with this predictable, simple, yet enjoyable movie. The core of the earth stopped spinning not the earth itself mind you which is causing the electromagnetic field to dissipate.

Acting wise Stanley Tucci is a joy, Hillary Swank still kind of looks like a guy, and everyone else is forgettable. If the core could somehow be stopped relative to the rest of the planet which is physically impossible , then the core's energy would quite quickly be dissipated into the Earth's mantle, which would become an unimaginable inferno much more so than it already is , propagating seismic and super-volcano activity all over the globe by a factor of, say, 10,000 times normal activity. They break through the crust underwater, leaving them safe on the ocean floor, but power and communications are offline.
The only wasted cast member is , relegated to one of those Mission Control roles where she has to look worried and then relieved. I will take this film with me to the grave lol.

John Keyes Aaron Eckhart makes the startling discovery that the Earth's electromagnetic forces have begun to collapse, thanks to a sudden lack of movement of the molten ore at the center of the Earth. Earth killer movies are always a harder road. Lets put two under the scientific microphone shall we. Also, the military has a vast and efficient logistics system making it possible to bring the major pieces of equipment together in the short amount of time available.
I will take this film with me to the grave lol. Their mission: detonate a device that will reactivate the core. The Earth's core has stopped spinning.

Disasters are happening around the globe, including; animals acting in bizarre ways, monstrous thunderstorms. You have your 4 standard horseman of the earth disaster; nuclear war, space invaders, plagues esp.
