Oscar winner Hilary Swank wastes her time in this weak disaster epic that sends a team of scientists and pilots to the Earth’s core via an implausible burrowing machine. It seems that the planet has stopped spinning due to militaristic assholes trying to create a strategic earthquake weapon, so the center of the Earth must be nuked. Swank and the likes of Aaron Eckhart and Stanley Tucci are good performers, but the movie is as dumb as dirt. Some of the worst special effects you will see in a big budget movie this year. B.G.
