"Go ahead and land the damn plane general. We've got us a job of work to do." That is the brilliant writing you can expect from Deep Core. I know this came before The Core but it's still a rip off of the Paul Preuss book and because of that it's the exact same movie. Either way Phillip Roth once again shows that he's still the worst in the biz.
3 of 5 stars for this cheesy sci-fi movie. The basic plot has been done and redone several times and this version isn't any better. The story has the world-ending if the crew of this "Earth-submarine" can't successfully dig into middle-Earth and trigger some nukes. Of course, there is some spy stuff and some double-crosses to make it interesting. A trivial romance is misplaced in this movie.
So, it is OK and worth the watch, but, it isn't the best sci-fi I've seen.
I love Wil Wheaton, but oh my god. Probably the worst, lamest, spectacularly atrocious film I have ever seen. Maybe I'm thick, maybe it was a parody in the style of Spaceballs? Full of cliches, bad science, unbelievable plot, it was positively cringeworthy. Wil, promise us you will never sully yourself like that again.
For the longest time, I was under the impression that this movie was a rip-off of the (also rather crappy) film The Core, but Deep Core actually precedes it by three years. Not that it matters. It's still a craptacular film appropriately relegated to saturday Sci-Fi channel reruns.
Whil Wheaton does get incinerated by a column of lava, so extra half star for that...
Now this movie is very very similar to The Core, but it actually came out before The Core which was a huge surprise to me. Now if you want a very good visual of how bad this movie is take the horrible quality of The Core and times it by about 100 then you may have a small glimpse into this films stupidity. This movie has absolutely nothing good in it at all. Bad effects, insanely horrid acting, and a storyline that will have you laughing your ass off trying to figure out what the hell is wrong with the director. I bet somewere on the floor of the editing room are the scenes that actually make this movie make sense. One second the guys are just explosive experts the next they are instantely nuclear scientists and have the knowledge of every science project since the beginning of time. The movie is just idioticy and the director who said I can make this work should be retired because this movie is a disrace to filmakers and actors alike. I recommend not only never renting this movie but never ever even think about seeing it because it may just scare you for life.
