I was thinking of seeing this because I'm not someone who thinks the Schwarzenegger movie was hugely entertaining. It had one powerful scene, which puts it ahead of lots of movies that have none. But no nostalgia here.
But, a tunnel through the center of the Earth? From what's written here I gather it's not supposed to be a device to tap energy from the Earth's core, with transportation a secondary function. Even though there's supposed to be a ravaged planet and human civilization which might need a nonfuel energy source to survive?
Cranston, Farrell and Nighy notwithstanding, this sounds to stupid to pay movie price for. Waiting for the DVD.
