Take the Journey and see the most realistic and clear 3D effects ever (by the-movie-guy)
Synopsis Professor Trevor Anderson Brendan Fraser teaches earth sciences at the university and heads the Center of Volcanic Activity. Max Anderson, Trevor's brother, built the monitoring system and placed the units around the world 10 years earlier. For some unknown reason, Max did not return, leaving behind a wife and son, Sean Josh Hutcherson . Sean's mother leaves the teenager at Trevor's house to get some quality time with his uncle. They look at Max's copy of Journey to the Center of the Earth by Jules Verne and find a secret code. Back at the monitoring center <more>
Trevor compares the volcanic activity numbers and finds that they are exactly the same as the ones in the book. Trevor and Sean fly to Iceland to check one of the units and to see if they can find some information about where Max went. Trevor hires a beautiful mountain guide, Hannah Anita Briem , to take them up the volcano. During an electrical storm on the volcano, they get trapped in an abandoned mine. They search for a way out of the mine and discover a wall filled with large diamonds. Unfortunately, the floor they are standing on can't hold their weight, and they fall down a volcano tube for miles and miles until they reach the center of the earth. Once there, they encounter prehistoric glow birds, flying piranha, man-eating plants, and T-Rex dinosaurs that have been extinct for millions of years. They find that they are seeing the same things that were printed in the Jules Verne book. This gave them hope that someone was able to escape from the center of the earth and return to the surface. My Comment This is one fantastic movie in digital 3D. The 'Real D 3D' lens are glass and not the old red-and-green cardboard lens. They have new 3D frames that are large enough to fit over your glasses. If you see the movie, you must see the 3D version, because it was the best special effects in 3D that I have ever seen. There are some scenes that will make you jump, because you think the object is about to hit you, or the object is within your reach. I actually put out my hand several times to touch an object, that is how real this movie was to me. The 3D was so good that I looked at it almost as much as looking at the acting. As you can see, I thought the new 3D technology was just incredible. The 3D effects are crystal clear and so realistic. The effects of small objects coming out of the screen are better than large ones. The movie itself has some thrilling moments and of course the Jules Verne story is a great fantasy that you will love from beginning to end. I enjoyed the movie and loved the 3D effects. I am giving the movie my top rating just for the new 3D effects. New Line Cinema, Run Time 1:32, Rated PG 10/10
This is a fine film for all ages. Obviously, the cynics and pessimists will not like it. Sure this is science fiction or fantasy. I would expect that people who do not like science fiction or fantasy will find this film not realistic. Of course that is a criticism of the entire genre of science fiction. Same goes with the genre of fantasy.Of course Star Wars was science fiction and no one really believes that the Stars Wars universe really exists. The same goes for fantasy in which no one believes that unicorns really speak in Narnia or that Lord of the Rings really happened. Basically if you <more>
do not like fantasy or science fiction you will hate this film.This is equal to or better than the excellent Indiana Jones. It has less comedy and is more dramatic. It is also less violent and is fine for any age. This film is also way better than the 1990s version of Journey to the Center of the Earth. There was also a version of Journey to the Center of the Earth in 1959. That 1959 Journey to the Center of the Earth with James Mason was also a good movie but quite a bit different than this one. This new film reminds me of the original Time Machine with Rod Taylor. It has a genuinely strong tragic moment and has the feel of the great Robinson Crusoe on Mars from the sixties. The acting was no problem and the mountain guide was a nice change of pace because she seemed real and not a fashion model. The teen is fresh off the fun film Firehouse Dog. And Frasier turns in his usual good performance. The film is full of excellent special effects and you will get your money's worth. I highly recommend this inspiring film for science fiction and fantasy fans. It is one of my favorites.
Somehow, one never seems to think of film stars as coming from Iceland. But she is comely and interesting to watch, and she looked good with Fraser. The supporting cast and there wasn't much of them, as it was mostly CGI stuff, and not really populated with many humans, except for brief appearances was also adequate, albeit they had little to do.Overall, then, this was science fiction with an emphasis on the "fiction." Little here was even remotely believable. Yet taken together, it made an interesting visual contemplation of "what if?" and an enjoyable couple of hours at the cinema for example, the characters free-fall to the "center of the earth," which would be 4,000 MILES down. Allowing for the rather slap-dash explanation of "magma envelopes" and all, we are nonetheless asked to believe they fell thousands of miles in a few seconds. The lava tube they fell down, fake as it was, was kind of evocative--- it did bring to mind a sense of mystery, and the powers of nature that are WAY beyond our everyday experiences, even if it was rather silly .Oh, BTW, an obvious logic flaw--- if there really was a magma envelope surrounding the interior ocean and lush tropical paradise--- why didn't the free-fall take them through that, it being a sphere and all? Don't even think about it! Just enjoy the fairy tale.
A very enjoyable romp with a clean story that is fun for adults and children alike (by adb-36)
I and my wife found this movie to be extremely enjoyable. I thought the 3d was very well done and tasteful. It was unfortunate that the internet and blogosphere reviewers are so jaded and do there best to destroy any hope of box-office success for any clean, straight-forward fun.There were no agendas in the movie, no sex, no unnecessary violence, just a really fun 3d ride.Don't let the bitter people dissuade you from seeing this movie in the theater. Everyone I know who saw the movie had good things to say. We gave it a standing ovation. 9/10
great family movie rated PG with steady action (by A2Z4Me)
speed shortly with a new action scene. I have not read the book, but have seen a few of the other versions of this, including the one made for TV recently. I would give this movie a very good effort competing with the original movie still be the best. Afterall it had great effects for back in 1959, but don't compare with todays technology.A must see on the big screen. And its PG, so take the family. No cursing, nudity, or gory graphics. Just clean fun for the kids and adults. Its hard to find a movie that both adults and kids find entertaining. I'd give it 9.5/10.
I first saw the trailer for Journey to the Centre of the Earth last Christmas when I watched The Nightmare Before Christmas in 3-d. I also remember clearly thinking what a load of rubbish it looked like. It appeared to be a gigantic gimmick, cashing in on the latest 3-d technology. The various TV spots and images I saw of the movie in the past few months has done absolutely nothing to dispel this notion. However this past week something happened I didn't really expect, the critics were giving it quite decent reviews, most praising it as ridiculously good fun. I was still sceptical, but <more>
Brendan Fraser plays a scientist and school professor who studies the earths core, magma and seismic changes and yearns for a life outside of the lab.He has a knack for these adventure movies as he has in the Mummy movies, and the kid who plays his nephew Sean link up for family time to uncover some of the mysteries of the notes Seans father left in his journey to find a Lost land.They decipher the notes and their adventure takes them to Iceland where they meet the other member of this trilogy a mountain climber who has the energy and smile to melt any glacier and keep up with the boys.The <more>
CGI and graphical were probably more effective in 3D so I'll let that go but the story has fun and the relationship between the character evolves with every adventure they encounter.7.5/10 For EntertainmentOverall: 7.5/10
Very good film---fun for the whole family (by derekprice1974)
Hey there! I was able to go to Knoxville, TN, to catch the world premiere of this movie where I actually met Brendan Fraser, Josh Hutcherson, and the director. They were all three very nice! The movie is very fun with not having to think at all. I've never read the book, so I have no idea how "true" to the book it is. The movie clocks in at 92 minutes, which is a great length. I saw it in the REAL 3D, and I am so glad I did. The new technology makes the 3D just incredible. Some of the special effects were very much animated and you could tell, but the movie itself is visually <more>
stunning, very entertaining, has no bad language, nudity, nor sex scenes. My vote is that for a good 1.5 hours of entertainment with your family, this is the movie for you! Oh yeah, it opens on July 11th, 2008--my 34th birthday!
