While adding IMDB trivia items to The Core thread I found this item.
~ This movie is a remake of a low budget movie called "Deep Core", starring Terry Farrell (Star Trek DS9) and Wil Wheaton (Star Trek TNG).
The Wikipedia synopsis confirms that the plots of the two movies are indeed similar. Here's what one IMDB member has to say say about it. (He gives it two stars out of ten!)
Yep, it's really that bad.

I just want to add my voice to the critics and say, yes this movie is REALLY bad.
It has no suspense to speak of except where the characters start pretending to be serious. No link to reality, what in the world qualifies some oil fire fighters to run cutting edge equipment other than they're the inventor's drinking buddies. THESE guys are going to set off nukes to save the world? No wonder it's about to end.
As for casting, I think the only criteria was who was unemployed when it came time to shoot. Personally though I have to say I did like the Wil Wheaton Molten Shower scene.
Here's the trailer.
