Here’s a movie that awkwardly straddles the great sci-fi movies of the 1950s and the big budget disaster films of the 70s. It’s a pretty damn wacky plot: A bunch of international scientists have dug themselves a bunker 2 miles underground and concocted a ludicrous plan to release an endless energy supply from the Earth’s core by detonating a nuclear bomb! SCIENCE! Obviously this goes tits-up and the lab-coats have set off a chain reaction that could literally split the earth in two. Queue even more SCIENCE and nuclear bombs to fix the solution (nuke the crack caused by a nuke, that’ll fix it)- including one particularly terrible miniature shot of the morons nuking a volcano! Remember that episode of the Simpsons where Homer fixes Lisa’s VCR with fireworks? Yeah, like that. Anyway, after more nuking of nature, a whole lot of stock-footage, and a love triangle that’s just plain weird, the scientists succeed in not destroying the world.., sort of.., a huge chunk of the planet explodes out into space to create a second Moon (which is kind of cool). These mother fuckers should be arrested! Anyway, next time your cable brakes don’t call on these assholes to fix it. Fire in the hole!
