The bit where spacetime comes to a point could be changed to something less drastic without hurting the story.  Dr. Island's voice is just audio effects.  Then you just need a crab-like robot (shoot a simple version coming out of the sea, then a static version moving it's arms - or use CGI for this). The nuclear welder is just a standard welder or torch of some kind, overexposed.  All the rest is just folks talking!
