    It's not completely unbearable, but the script is trash, and the CGI effects are mediocre at best.

    Tout portait à croire que cette énième version du roman de Jules Verne serait destinée à un jeune public. En effet, Voyage au Centre de la Terre possède un humour bon enfant, des bons sentiments et surtout de l'action. Pour ce qui est des spectateurs plus âgés, c'est une autre affaire... Cet humour pour gosses devient dépassé (sans même faire sourire par moment), l'ambiance émotionnelle frôle la niaiserie et l'ensemble a tout d'un aspect téléfilm. En somme, Voyage au Centre de la Terre a tout du divertissement que l'on regarde qu'une seule fois (il faut dire que l'on s'attache aux personnages, l'univers visuel est inégal mais jouissif et que l'ensemble ne manque pas de ryhme), mais certaiment pas que l'on s'y attarde une seule seconde de plus. Un régal pour les enfants (ludique et agréable), un nanar visuel qui fait passer le temps pour les adultes. Collapse

    WHY WAS THIS MOVIE MADE? Sorry for the all caps rage! This is a mediocre waste-land where good movie go to die. Horrible, cheap, played for "laughs". Jesus....what a freakin' waste.

    Visual effects are on par, but the story and the acting sink this movie way down the list. Almost everything could've been improved, including the miscast of Brendan Frazier. Boy, is that guy making some crap movie nowadays.

    Journey to The Center of The Earth is just plain poor.
    It begins uninteresting with an unhappy teenager and his dad. It gets better as it goes along with some good special effects, but then returns to being uninteresting towards the end. The characters make poor choices on purpose and the script is basically trash.

    A more unavoidable obstacle here is that there's not much in the way of plot -- the story is in the tour through the labyrinthian intimacies of inner Earth. As such, it's an f/x wizard's dream, and Brevig makes the most of it.
  2. It would be barely passable under normal circumstances, but in 3-D it's a circus of excellent FX.

    If the 3D here is better than average, SLIGHTLY, the rest of the movie brings it way, way down--not quite to the center of the earth, but at least a good six feet under.
