Critic Reviews for Journey to the Center of the Earth
Most of the movie, directed by Eric Brevig, is as daft, outlandish, and speedy as it needs to be, and, for all its newfangled effects, touchingly old-fashioned in its reverence for the Jules Verne novel that inspired it.
This latest adaptation of Journey to the Centre of the Earth is clean cut entertainment recommended for a family night out, although some scenes may frighten the little ones.
Brendan Fraser's physical dexterity and comic timing are laid out in good order here, and "Journey" is pretty much a Frasermobile. Without him, it just doesn't go anywhere.
Journey relentlessly dishes out the action and offers the bespectacled audience plenty of goopy, grabby 3-D jolts, but it all resembles a run of the mill video game. Brevig can't shake the material loose from its unbridled artificiality."
Whilst 3D glasses might mask this lapse of originality by putting it all in your face, from a standard visual plane, the creative potential of Verne's novel appears to be inexcusably wasted.
Audience Reviews for Journey to the Center of the Earth
Surprisingly light and easy to watch. completely fantastic fare with decent effects, something kids will enjoy and ooooh and awwwe over.
The tweeners will appreciate this redo of the Verne classic, filled with special effects galore, from a tweener perspective, but nary a character to relate to at all. Fraser nicely helms this effort w/o effort. Eh.
Here's a perfectly fine, fluffy family movie. Brendan Fraser stars as a science professor who gets stuck with his nephew(Josh Hutchinson) for 10 days. When he is dropped off so is a box of Fraser's late brother Max's'. The box contains a book called "Journey to the Center of the Earth" with notes/directions on how to get to the center of the Earth. So they set off on an adventure to see if the book was real. Shot in 3D(I didn't watch it in 3D), it has a lot of 3D specific special effects, but it never goes too overboard. The effects as a whole, are okay, but nothing spectacular. Well, my one year old did like the dinosaur:-) Really a movie for everyone in the family, as the adults will be entertained, and the kids will be in awe, and love the adventure elements. Perfect for a morning watch when nothing else is on, and you just wanna escape for 90 minutes.
