The stars here are the novelties of 3D, which certainly make it fun %u2013 just a tad repetitive for anyone over 25, I suspect

Giant fossilised mushrooms, flying fish with massive teeth, glowing bluebirds, a rollercoaster ride on an underground mine railway and magnetic floating rocks are some of the ingredients of this 3D adventure take on Jules Verne's classic sci-fi novel . .

If you can turn off your mind, and I know that is pretty easy for most of us, then you'll get a kick out of this 3D journey.

In 2-D, Journey to the Center of the Earth would be okay, I guess, but you'd be more apt to notice the cardboard characters, or the thin plotting, or the way each grave danger seems to be easily solved. In 3-D, however, it's a complete blast.

Colourful good fun on the big screen, especially in 3D. Although only kids will fall for the bloodless violence and corny plot points.

This flick is strictly kids' stuff, but with the 3D enticement, it makes for an enjoyable, lightweight good time.

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.
July 16, 2008
A pleasantly cast mediocrity that scores slightly higher marks in its 3-D incarnation.

A perfect Saturday matinee movie.
July 15, 2008
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.
July 15, 2008
The first summer movie that is both: a) truly comparable to a roller coaster ride; and b) significantly worse than a roller coaster ride.
July 15, 2008
Without the 3-D effects it is a rather ordinary movie
