    It hard to know where to place blame for this film's lack of an audience connection: a terrible script that makes stilted decisions, wooden acting, or a director seemingly uninterested in any of it. Nonetheless it might pass kiddie review standards ...

    Ever so unfaithful and extremely long, this 1999 adaption overstays its welcome. The video cover boasts dinosaurs and adventure, but both are little in presence. The characters are alright, and the casting is fine, but in the end they play out and eventually become boring. Sleestak rip-offs really didn't add much danger. While Journey starts off good, you'll wish it was an hour or so shorter.

    Not Bad Special Effects, Not Bad Suspense. This Slow Burn Sc-Fi Mini-Series Is Loosely Adapted From The Novel Of The Same Name By Jules Verne. This Is Yet Another Version Of The Classic Novel, That's Not Close To The Original Source Material (As Most Of Them Are). This Version Is Directed By George Miller (Director: Mad Max Trilogy), & Stars Treat Williams, Tushka Bergen, Jeremy London & Bryan Brown.

    i love this book when i was still in elementary and i love this version from hallmark, eventhough it was just a tv-movie version its way better than the movie done by brendan fraser.

    Rubbish script writing, poor camera angles. Acting is rather flat. Special effects are mixed. Costumes and makeup are fairly good. Overall not a movie to be taken seriously and seems like a very low budget B grade movie, but it does have some very funny scenes with the New Zealand Maori people.

    There seems to be so many versions of this tale! I like the whole concept though. Great film. Acting isn't <i>too</i> shabby. Treat Williams is good, as is Jeremy London. If you want a story that has two rival tribes - (Who suprisingly both speak English although no suprise that the females are far more intelligent that the males), lots of dinosaurs, average acting, but a tale that will keep you hooked, then check this out. Although the ending for me was such a let down. They might aswell have ended it with 'and they all woke up'.
