Given that, I finally finished it. When she awakens, she discovers the strangest landscapes and a host of unusual objects. And it has such potential. While the movie does feel like a gimmick at times, do we really need that yo-yo scene, the movie also does seem quite well made. I came to care for all three of them, and they worked well together. The movie itself is just not really worth your money. While it won't win awards it does entertaining, and the hundreds of kids who were in my screen today seemed just as impressed and entertained as I was.
It's a classic case of flashy visuals, horrid plot execution. I'm not gonna spoil the ending, but I'm probably not gonna be able to. The 3-D was a lot of fun. Kind of like in a Spielberg film - you just know the kid's not going to get hurt no matter what. Can be challenging but give it a try. Hint button is there if you need it, I did.
Don't even think about it! Is very challenging that is for sure. I first saw the trailer for Journey to the Centre of the Earth last Christmas when I watched The Nightmare Before Christmas in 3-d. Brendan Fraser has always been a great actor, with an agreeable presence. He seemed to have disappeared in recent years, but with both this and The Mummy 3 arriving in cinemas this year I am sure we might be seeing some more of him over the next few years. For more free audio books or to become a volunteer reader, visit. The story is kind of a standard one. At least the 1950's version retained some veneer of plausibility.
The movie itself was a joyride - a mindless joyride, that is. I understand why they're releasing it in 2-d, the producers do need their money back, but it really will not be the same thing. Mark McNair, Alex Schwartz, Mylan Stepanovich, Evan Turner, Tripp Vinson Screenwriters: Michael D. While they get the kids excited they're not the most exciting things to watch in the world and certainly don't make a good movie. So I went to see the movie today, of course in 3-d more on that later and was absolutely amazed at how entertaining the movie really is. It's a wasted concept that could have been a lot better had the film-making branched out from the narrow scope it obviously uses. They can speed over 60 mph on a rickety 60+ year old mine car without being derailed and jump farther than those Duke boys could in the General Lee! A mine cart chase is the cinematic equivalent of a roller coaster ride and really does get the adrenaline pumping.
Overall Journey to the Centre of the Earth may very well be the biggest surprise of the summer, and quite possibly the year. We really only got three characters in the movie and less than ten speaking parts , so a lot rides on our three leads. I had to resort to return to saved games to get out of the loop. He also does a great double act alongside Josh Hutcherson as his nephew. No walk-though which I like just in case.
Just enjoy the fairy tale. His characters transformation neither feels forced nor corny, and one moment with Fraser in front of a sunset is one of the many highlights of the movie. Our third lead is Icelandic actress Anita Briem. He may not be the best actor, and he may say some pretty stupid one liners that get old after the 800th time, but he still has the same charm that makes him likable in the Mummy films. Hutcherson really is an A-lister in the making in my opinion, while his performance here doesn't match what he did Bridge to Terabithia, he still makes a potentially average brat into a likable characters with genuine motivations. The only thing I would recommend it for would be the Real-D.
At least the script didn't call for the actors to take each other seriously, but this also robbed the film of any suspense whatsoever. Synopsis Professor Trevor Anderson receives his teenager nephew Sean Anderson. The script is also much better than it really should be, in fact it actually works better than your average blockbuster to be honest. I wish they made more games like this one. If I hadn't, I might have walked out. However, lightening collapses the entrance and the trio is trapped in the cave.
The early part of the movie does feature the most gimmicks of the 3-d, we get the yo-yo scene, the spitting scene, etc. This is a 3-d movie, and make no mistakes by thinking it is worth watching in 2-d, it really isn't. However, despite all of that, I liked it! As did the newcomer actor, the Icelandic lady- Anita Briem. Rated 4 out of 5 by roseoflove from A mixed bag I did enjoy this game - i enjoyed the complexity of it, and it allowed alot more independant exploration. She gives a box to Trevor that belonged to his missing brother, Max, and Trevor find a book with references to the last journey of his brother. Ariane, a young reporter, is suddenly swallowed by the earth while covering a story near the Sneffels volcano. Somehow, one never seems to think of film stars as coming from Iceland.
