The movie proves the perfect showcase for 3D. I can't say that it does the same for Fraser.

Brevig does a barely competent job of imitating the Indiana Jones movies, and seems more hindered than helped by his chosen format...

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.
July 11, 2008
Perfectly charming as well as predictably eye-popping.
July 11, 2008
Flat and predictable, though the visuals are often striking.
July 11, 2008
If 3D is indeed the future of movies, we're going to need something more substantial than Journey to the Center of the Earth to convince us.
July 11, 2008
If, at this moment, the child next to you grabs your arm and hollers "Duck!", the movie will have been worth the ticket price.
July 11, 2008
The absence of star charisma in Journey denies the audience some focus in a movie that keeps changing backdrops and is ultimately no more than the sum of its wild-eyed parts.
July 11, 2008
Journey shows that Brevig knows exactly what visual effects can do -- and more important, what they can't.
July 11, 2008
A movie that's faithful to an idea, and to a sense of adventure, more than to a specific work.
July 11, 2008
I don't know if 3-D could improve all movies (nothing could make The Love Guru funny) but it sure works here.
July 11, 2008
Journey may be an utterly weightless movie, but in the end it floats rather nicely.
July 11, 2008
It has a just-rebellious-enough kid, just-goofy-enough hero, a cute competent heroine and plenty of bumper-car chase scenes and house-of-shocks surprises.
July 11, 2008
Unusual for this genre, the script doesn't insult the audience's intelligence, and it mercifully soft-pedals its message about the virtues of reading.
July 11, 2008
The cast hits the right notes.
July 11, 2008
Clean, lightweight escapism with a top-notch gimmick.
July 11, 2008
A virtual theme-park simulation and possibly a milestone of immersive entertainment.

That dinosaur looks like it's popping off the screen! Cool!
