A production that... as soon as it has been consumed... is forgotten. [Full Review in Spanish]

...pervasive mediocrity...
December 23, 2012
A magical film: it never runs out of new and delightful ways to be completely inane.
December 28, 2010
This is a big, dumb, explosion movie.

'The only truly interesting aspect found in "The Core" is Jon Amiel's thoughts as to what the inner parts of Earth might look like.'

If something isn't done soon, the earth as we know it (love that clich) will destroy itself. Who do you call? Core busters!

Should be a sci-fi screenwriter's dream; but this dream is more like one that Michael Crichton would have than Jules Verne, and there's not a breath of imagination on display

'Look out! It's diamonds big as Cape Cod!' No, they're large black blobs that the CGI guys clearly didn't have time to fill in with vector graphics. No need for alarm.

The Core ain’t your grandma’s journey to the center of the earth.

The Core is really nothing more than a special effects show, but for the most part, they aren't exactly special.
October 27, 2003
A disaster film with a high calibre cast, atrocious, inane dialogue, unspectacular special effects and questionable science. But fun nonetheless.

Hillary Swank and Aaron Eckhart lead the latest adventure to save the world from natural forces... YAWN.

A mostly static excursion with a weak premise when it comes to explaining what went wrong with the planet, and an even weaker remedy offered for making it right again.
September 11, 2003
Something almost gleeful in the way it recounts disasters such as the San Francisco Bridge being roasted by cosmic rays . . .
July 17, 2003
Any glutton for big screen mayhem will agree that beholding the Golden Gate Bridge fry like an ant underneath a magnifying glass is alone well worth top theatre dollar
