Journey to the Center of the Earth 3D Review

August 31, 2008 at 3:12 pm (Movies)

“Just a small town boy, born and raised in south de-trohoit… took the midnight train goin any-where…” Sorry, had to get that out of my system. This is Journey to the Center of the Earth IN 3D! In the movie, Brendan Frasier is your typical geology professor. He runs his own lab that’s about to be taken over, and his brother has been missing for several years. His nephew comes into town, and Frasier discovers his brother could have been onto finding the center of the earth. They go to Iceland, and with the help of a tour guide, get to the center of the earth. The movie is your basic summer action romp, there’s water voyages, dinosaurs, man-eating plants, etc. It makes for a fun little summer movie, however that’s about it. It isn’t nearly as deep as The Dark Knight and some of the other summer blockbusters, however it wasn’t intended to be. The 3D aspect of the film is fun, there are several “Ooooh… Look at that…” moments, and it makes for some fun. I wondered a few times though if the movie would have been better without the 3D. The movie ends with plenty of room for a sequel, and if it comes out, I probably won’t see it, but would probably be a good rent. Overall, Journey is a fun summer movie that you won’t regret seeing, you can make a good afternoon of seeing it, it’s just not the best movie you’ll see all summer.
