JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE EARTH (2008 USA)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.9|5.0 Starsììì

Journey to the Center of the Earth is a good show and worth watching. While Brendan Fraser does not seem to fit his assigned character well, Josh Hutcherson and Anita Briem are well cast for their parts. The story is great and the concept is well thought out. Like the original Journey to the Center of the Earth, there is not much storyline here. But, there are bits and pieces of the film that stand out (like the dinosaur chase).

Storyline

An uncle, Trevor Anderson (Brendan Fraser), and his nephew, Sean Anderson (Josh Hutcherson), look for Sean’s missing Father and find the center of the earth.

Additional Thanks

Thank you to Director Eric Brevig for directing effort. Thank you to Executive Producers Toby Emmerich, Brendan Fraser, W. Mark McNair, and Tripp Vinson for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: Hannah Ásgeirsson (Anita Briem), Professor Alan Kitzens (Seth Meyers), Max Anderson (Jean Michel Paré), Elizabeth (Jane Wheeler), Old Man (Frank Fontaine), Leonard (Giancarlo Caltabiano), Sigurbjörn Ásgeirsson (Garth Gilker), and Gum-chewing Girl (Kaniehtiio Horn).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. The movie is well-made and has some creatively different scenery (like the raft in the ocean) that is quite good.
