Around the World in 80 Days Reviews
I did like the action scenes in Paris. Having Jackie Chan in the film go to China.
This film shows an entertaining Journey.
I do like the film score theme for this film.
The computer graphics are interesting.
In this version there is more action. Phileas Fogg is considered an inventor with questionable objects of his time similar to Doc Brown in Back to the Future. Phileas Fogg abilities are considered questionable to the scientific community. If wins Phileas Fogg is to become head Minister of the Scientific Community in England. But if he does not make it he is to decommission his laboratory and no longer invent again.
This film is filled with more obsticils than encountered the 1950's version.
Also the ethnicity of Monique La Roche & Passepartout is reversed compared to the 1956 version. In the 1956 version Passepartout is a Spanish ethic background & Princess Aouda is from India. I found the culture mix better and more interesting match compared to the 1956 film.
This film has more trying to stop the trip than in the 1956 version of the film.
