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. Expand

    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.

    (Not a rating of movie itself, but more like the plot) How can this be that bad? Well, Ian mcshane isnt in it so it has to be REALLY Terrible! I mean, how popular was Narnia when it came out to knock off of it?

    I can't think of one good thing to say about it. We thought it couldn't be too bad if Brendan Fraser was in it. Wrong.

    Amazingly bad dialouge, fx and redicuously unrealistic stunts.

    How people did not learn anything after the first Mummy movie is beyond me. Consistently dreadful dialog and endless greenscreen usage is all I see. Don't waste your hard-earned money on this tripe.

    This modern version of it couldn't handle the same element of the old one and kept using this as a vehicle for Fraser. This film sucks.

    This is absolutely one of the worst films I've ever seen. Horrendous story line, horrendous acting...the special effects may be the only redeeming value, but that can't even save this movie. Trite, vapid and a movie that should appeal to small children or those who have been lobotomized. I can't believe anyone would give this movie anything over a score of 1.

    A rock pile is found on the littoral of an acheronian beach, determined by the exploration party to be the remains of a long, lost brother and father. Since the laws of physics precludes the deceased from being a gravedigger, basic syllogism dictates that the dead man was not alone. But for some unknown reason, nobody broaches the possibility of being under observation by an other, or A rock pile is found on the littoral of an acheronian beach, determined by the exploration party to be the remains of a long, lost brother and father. Since the laws of physics precludes the deceased from being a gravedigger, basic syllogism dictates that the dead man was not alone. But for some unknown reason, nobody broaches the possibility of being under observation by an other, or that the dearly departed might have been the digger. The two men have a good cry and move on. Maybe the boy's father trained the dinosaur to dig a hole. Attention to detail was apparently reserved for the 3D effects(kind of bitchin'), because "Journey to the Center of the Earth" handles this awesome safari like a treacherous camping trip. At one point, Trevor Anderson(Brendan Fraser) tells Hannah(Anita Briem) to go home, as if it was a matter of canoe or raft. All she has to do is reach the river, according to the professor, who must possess some arcane knowledge about vertically flowing water that can bust through layer after layer of rock. What this movie needed was for the actors to convey a sense of their isolation from the terraneous world. They don't seem terribly concerned about where they're situated. As a result, the center of the world seems more like a theme park. Expand

    May keep you entertained long enough to determine whether your headache was caused by the 3D glasses or the mind numbing dialog. A completely silent crowd after a big punchline is never a good sign.

    TURKEY time in July. In line for the Raspberry for the worst movie of the year. Avoid.

    I's slightly better than Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle, but that's really not saying much. OMG the logic in this film is non-existent. I'm amazed that Braden Fraser's career even exists after this.

    Indiana Jones wannabee! this movie doesn't even cut the "average" movie. It bunks itself in between "worthless" and "awful" my 8 year old cousin told me he fell asleep while watching it. Only a 2 year old would find it eye opening.

    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.
