When you Journey to the Center of the Earth, there's no telling what kind of adventure you might find. Kidzworld checks out this 3D FX-fest!

Book Worm

Brendan Fraser (The Mummy Returns) stars as Trevor Anderson, a professor and seismologist whose brother Max mysteriously vanished years ago. Trevor's nephew, Sean, (Josh Hutcherson from Bridge to Terabithia) comes to visit, bringing along some of his Max's papers, including a copy of Jules Verne's Journey to the Center of the Earth, noted with Max's hypothesis on how to venture down into the middle of the planet.

Volcanoes in Iceland?

Of course Trevor decides to rush to Iceland to follow his brother's instructions and drags Sean along with him. In Iceland they enlist the help of Hannah (Anita Briem), a mountain guide who's Dad believed Jules Verne's strange ideas about the Earth's core. She is skeptical, but still agrees to guide the guys into the mouth of a volcano. Good idea.

From Bad to Worse

Obviously things don't go quite according to plan as the adventurous crew manages to ride an ancient rail line down to a jeweled cavern, which shatters, sending them tumbling into an abyss. They're finally in the center of the Earth, a land of enormous mushrooms and glowing birds, and as the volcanic activity has temperatures rising, they know they have to escape, somehow. Along the way they run into carnivorous plants, ancient sea-monsters and of course, an angry Tyrannosaurus Rex. Can our heroes, keep moving and find a way out of the incredible world they fell into?

Bottom Line

This movie is all about the action and effects, but definitely lacks in character development and plot. That makes it a perfect flick for 3D though, since having crazy things flying at your face tends to help you ignore the rest. Josh Hutcherson proves himself to be a solid young actor, but Brendan Fraser's style of humor can get annoying fast. Anita Briem looks good as Hannah, but like the rest of the flick, that's about it. If you're looking to spend 90 minutes in a pretty cool theme park ride, you might totally enjoy this movie.
