Journey to the Centre of the Earth (2008)

Genre: Adventure/Action/Science-Fiction

Starring: Brendan Fraser, Josh Hutcherson, Anita Briem


Prof. Trevor Anderson (Fraser), a geologist, is trying to prove a volcanic theory that the world ridicules. He lost his friend Max in 1997 while he was trying to prove this very theory. Max's son Sean (Hutcherson) comes over to spend a few days with him, something Trevor is not looking forward to. When he gets hold of his old friends possesions, he discovers strange writings in Jules Verne's book The Journey to the Centre of the Earth written by Max himself. He discovers some sort of seismic activity later that day which is exactly the same to the day when Max got lost. Along with his nephew, he sets on a quest to Iceland to decipher the codes and to unlock the secret Max was pursuing. He hires a mountaineer Hannah (Briem) who is the daughter of a scientist who along with Max, belonged to a secret society that believed that the writing in Jules Verne's book was for real. The trio get lost in the deep confines of the earth, only to stumble across one of the most amazing discoveries of mankind. Although I saw the normal DVD version, many parts of this movie seem to have been created simply to give 3-D viewers thrills, which seem uncalled for. The special effects and visuals are horrible and seem to have been made over two decades ago. I really don't know if that is because of the 3-D print or not, but the overall job was quite bad. Certain parts seem to good to be true, like outrunning a T-Rex and riding a wave of lava in a dinosaur skull. Although being an adventure-fiction, it gets a bit too hard to believe at times.

Rating: 4.6/10
