JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE EARTH
Movie Review
Directed by Eric Brevig
Starring Brendan Fraser, Anita Briem
Review by Eli Manning



SYNOPSIS:

On a quest to find out what happened to his missing brother, a scientist, his nephew and their mountain guide discover a fantastic and dangerous lost world in the center of the earth.

REVIEW:

A film that shares the same name with science fiction writer Jules Verne's book tries to share the same theme of his writing style. Verne wrote with inspiration as you actually thought what he wrote was real and NOT science fiction.

And that's what great movies are about. We enter a world and we believe everything that is happening.

So Journey to the Center of the Earth takes the name of the novel but doesn't take the books inspiration. For 90 minutes, I felt like I was on a amusement park ride that I wanted to get

off 15 minutes in. I like riding roller coasters with the best of them, but I get sick of them after the fourth time around. Sometimes lineups are good and blessings in disguise. It gives you time to talk about the last ride and prepare for the new one. Journey doesn't offer that, which is too bad.

I was given my 3D glasses and prepared myself for an interesting time. I know that this is really the future in film, especially in action films like these. But they are at their elementary steps in the process as they really don't seem to know yet what to do with 3D. Either it gets too busy or it's not busy enough. They haven't found that balance yet. Perhaps James Cameron's 3D Avator, coming out next summer will be the real start to movies to come. Journey to the Center of the Earth in 3D definitely isn't worth the extra price in admission. So please don't bother.

This is a film filled with cliche after cliche. It's actually offensive in a way as you can only take so much. There isn't much for special effects wizard turned director Eric Brevig to work with, but even his direction is as basic as you can get.

So it makes me wonder if they were paying too much attention on the 3D stuff than the actual direction and story. After all, Cameron has spent almost 3 years and going on Avator. The creative team of Journey of the Center of the Earth spent a faction of that time.

It's a new way to make a film, which I'm all for as we need some flare to the film watch experience. But the bottom line always is an entertaining story where they take you into their world and you're glad to follow them. Having a good story is the key before anything else and it seemed that they forgot that.

And I don't think we need to see anymore dinosaurs in movies anymore.
