Work titles should be italicized, but not boldfaced
'''''The Core''''' is a 2003 film about a group of scientists who must travel to the center of the Earth to restart the faltering core of the planet. The government gets a group of four scientists to find a way to make the Earth's core continue to spin, since it's winding down and with it goes the Earth's magnetic field, and without it the entire surface will be melted by cosmic winds. Using literal {{Unobtanium}} to build a ship hull that grows stronger the more pressure is put on it, they set off to deploy a set of five [[DeusExNukina 200 megaton nuclear bombs]] in the core with the idea to restart it spinning.

no critical reception on the main page
It goes without saying that the science is atrocious... actually it went with saying, it's [[http://www.intuitor.com/moviephysics/ The Intuitor's]] pick for movie with the worst physics. But enough about that, we must get to what little story there is! Glib disdain aside, it's a decent popcorn flick with good special effects and a premise that wouldn't be out of place in a Creator/JulesVerne novel. That said, parallels to ''JourneyToTheCenterOfTheEarth'' aren't likely to be favorable for this movie because the characterizations aren't much to write home about. You have intrepid lead scientist, sexy romantic interest female scientist, DeadpanSnarker scientist, and geeky enthusiastic scientist. Aided by a PlayfulHacker with a rat motif. Now say your [[MST3KMantra mantra]] three times and [[LieBackAndThinkOfEngland lie back thinking of England]].

** There's some less-than-subtle product placement of Pepsi and Mountain Dew. Amusingly, it's when someone can't get one of their vending machines to work.

Only two of the ''Virgil'' crew make it out alive, as almost all of the rest performed {{Heroic Sacrifice}}s to advance the mission.]]

** [[spoiler:Leveque]]'s death is sort of a [[SubvertedTrope subversion]], considering that his death possibly could have been prevented had Beck flipped the override switch.
