Movie Info

Jules Verne's famous novel of a daring man who takes on the greatest voyage in history is once again adapted for the big screen in this adventure comedy. In 1872, eccentric British inventor Phileas Fogg (Steve Coogan) has come up with any number of gadgets to help people travel with greater speed and ease, and is working on plans for a flying machine. In a lively discussion with Lord Kelvin (Jim Broadbent), the head of the Royal Academy of Science, Fogg states his belief that it's possible for

Despite the rush to get everyone from place to place, director Frank Coraci luxuriates in colorful visual detail and gives the locals their due.

I was amazed at how little actually happens for a movie with so much action.

It's ironic that this film is less about traveling and more about beating the crap out of people all over the world.

The heart and soul of it, the story and the casting, are a complete mess.

Se eu fosse descendente de Verne processaria os produtores desta adaptação pavorosa por mancharem o nome da família ao incluí-lo nos créditos iniciais.

...Fogg essentially winds up playing second-banana to Passepartout - a disastrous choice that simply does not work.

...just another adventure comedy built around Jackie Chan, this time with Verne's travelogue tenuously holding the action scenes together.

Jackie Chan ... is undermined by the film's lack of direction.

Phony, unfunny family entertainment...packs in almost every racial and cultural stereotype in the world.

Jackie Chan is in a tiny tub with a man. Again.

Once it settles down, 80 Days becomes a pretty enjoyable comic-action romp that's ultimately twice as much fun as a lot of technically better movies I could name.

The absolutely scariest scene in Around the World in 80 Days features Arnold Schwarzenegger.

All my critical faculties tell me I shouldn't recommend it. But when I think of how often it I grinned (once a minute) and how often I checked my watch (never), I give up.

The style of humor - with its forced high jinks and pathetic attempts at farce - is so aggressively outrageous that it ultimately becomes abusive to the audience.

Director Frank Coraci plays fast and loose with Jules Verne's classic tome Around The World In 80 Days, but his adaptation never runs out of gas.

You may be pleasantly surprised by just how good this remake of the Jules Verne classic really is.

Audience Reviews for Around the World in 80 Days

Frank Coraci's version of Around the World in 80 Days is a horrible adaptation of the book although I think they were going more for a remake of the 1956 version staring David Niven. For some reason they've decided to ignore the fact that the original story is entertaining enough as it is, and instead of telling it they've turned it into a live action cartoon martial arts film. Apart from the fact Jackie Chan is in it, I can't work out why they thought this was a good idea. The original story has already been made in to a cartoon; Around the World with Willy Fog which I have to say was far superior. I can only imagine they thought loads of cameos was just as good as a good story, maybe people would notice the bad script if we stick Macy Gray here and John Cleese here. Many of the cameos should have known better, although I'm sure they all needed the money. The less said about Arnold Schwarzenegger's performance the better although it does sum up the film quite fairly; A bad idea.

[My predicted rating 2.5]

I would never have chosen to watch this film and yet it did have a fair bit of entertainment value. There were some good effects throughout the film and of course some good Martial Arts choreography from Jackie Chan, in fact even the usually irritating Steve Coogan did a good job - a good adventure!

A bad remake of the same-titled 1950s Best Picture Winner.

One of my all time favourite films. Really funny and I haven't seen the original but this has got to be one of the best remakes. Arnold's cameo is amazing!
