Journey to the Center of the Earth (2008)


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. (IMDb)
I got a jolt of giddiness when Trevor starting reading the cryptic notes in Verne’s novel, setting up the adventure to come, but unfortunately, the execution falls flat on its face: Besides the science being under-explained and far-fetched, the action scenes are childish and riddled with cheesy CGI, and the downtime is full of lame one-liners (“Welcome to the 21st century”), bland sentimentality (the kid-conflict is resolved after one scene), and shoddy acting (kid Hutcherson especially).
3.5/10 (Awful)
