Most Spectacular Geologic Action in a Movie

"Crack in the World" was undoubtedly inspired by Project Mohole in the 1960s (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_Mohole). The story is complete with tension between colleagues and has impressive special effects for their time. The gravity-defying finish is awesome. This is one of my all-time favourites, in part, because all the action takes place in the southern hemisphere!
