A guilty pleasure adventure with OK special effects, but more kiddie than adult oriented.

Twentieth Century Fox pulled out all the stops - and the giant mushrooms - for this silly spectacle...

It may well be second to KING KONG (1933) as the film I have seen the greatest number of times.

It's one of the very best Hollywood adventure movies, with lots of monsters, underground oceans, sinister villains, and touches which would have delighted Jules Verne himself.

Enjoyable hokum sci-fi tale that's based on an 1864 Jules Verne story.

...distinguished by its curious casting mix of Mason and pop croonster Pat Boone, some striking CinemaScope vistas, and Bernard Herrmann's orchestral score with cathedral-sized pipe organs.

Fun for the whole family, and—instead of the 2008 3-D version's Brendan Fraser—offers James freakin' Mason, who can pull off urbane and befuddled at the same time. [Blu-ray]
