The Core Reviews
When the talented scientist Dr.Joshua Keyes discovers that Earth is doomed due to the malfunctioning Earth core a team of scientists is gathered in order to be the last hope of mankind. An uneasy group of characters, the team has to go where not only nobody has never gone, but also where nobody has ever thought of going.
Frankly speaking the mediocrity of this disaster B-movie is all around. When you start from the unconvincing story, go through the so-so special effects and finish at failed attempts to be funny at moments, the movie is actually so bad that it could entertain! The biggest reason why Jon Amiel's delivery is actually watchable is the cast and the type of characters depicted in the movie. Even though the dialogues are quite flat and shallow, the different characters on board makes it intriguing to observe what will happen. This is especially valid for Stanley Tucci's annoying character which is capable to keep the audience engaged for the sole reason of waiting for the moment when he is going to die.
In the end, The Core is definitely not a blockbuster or a disaster movie to recommend spending your money on it. Yet, if you happen to be at home and there is absolutely nothing to see on the TV and you see it on one of the channel, give it a go. It will take you pass a boring evening with a beer and some popcorns in your hand.
La sequenza iniziale dello Shuttle è davvero gradevole.
Peccato solo che si abusi un po' troppo delle leggi fisiche: capisco le licenze narrative, ma non esageriamo!
