As it is with alot of gimmick movies, there is just not enough material to even sustain 90 minutes.

These filmmakers understand why audiences have put on the 3D glasses, and they offer up visual trick after visual trick in hopes of keeping the viewers wowed.

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.

There's no doubt about it: The 3-D special effects steal the show from the human performers in 'Journey to the Center of the Earth,' a family film that's a fun adventure.

If it's 3D, it's fun. Without the glasses, it sucks hard.

If you plan to see this movie at all, see it at a 3D engagement, because the spectacular computer-generated imagery - as often as not flying out of the screen and into your face - is the only reason for the price of admission.

Fun as thrill ride, but surprisingly poor as film.

I don't know if this movie would be nearly as good when seen in regular old 2D. In 3D, it is a good roller coaster ride.

As for Fraser's overacting, he's such a ham that his eyes pop out of the screen even more menacingly than those sharp dinosaur choppers.

A pleasantly cast mediocrity that scores slightly higher marks in its 3-D incarnation.

a theme park metaphor is particularly apt in describing this movie because it plays like the 3-D attractions you can find over at Sea World. It's exciting, funny, not too scary and quite short%u2014young kids will absolutely love it.

Antagony & Ecstasy

The first summer movie that is both: a) truly comparable to a roller coaster ride; and b) significantly worse than a roller coaster ride.

Without the 3-D effects it is a rather ordinary movie

Isn't the worst film in theaters, nor will it manage to be the worst film all year...

...the 3-D version of the film is good, dumb fun. In standard 2-D, I imagine, it would just be dumb, and much less fun

Aggressively bland, a display of X-treme mildness, a cinematic saltine.
