About the Movie

During a scientific expedition in Iceland, visionary scientist Trevor Anderson (Brendan Fraser), his nephew Sean (Josh Hutcherson) and their beautiful local guide, Hannah (Anita Briem), are unexpectedly trapped in a cave from which their only escape is to go deeper and deeper into the depths of the Earth. Traveling through never-before-seen worlds, the trio comes face-to-face with surreal and unimaginable creatures-- including man-eating plants, giant flying piranha, glow birds and terrifying dinosaurs from days past. The explorers soon realize that as volcanic activity increases around them, they must find a way back to the earth's surface before it is too late. With spectacular photo-real environments and revolutionary new filmmaking techniques, "Journey to the Center of the Earth" is an epic adventure that takes audiences directly into the heart of our heroes' voyage, bringing them along for a wild, visceral ride.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: If, at this moment, the child next to you grabs your arm and hollers "Duck!", the movie will have been worth the ticket price. – Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Flat and predictable, though the visuals are often striking. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: A movie that's faithful to an idea, and to a sense of adventure, more than to a specific work. – Stephanie Zacharek,, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Most of the movie, directed by Eric Brevig, is as daft, outlandish, and speedy as it needs to be, and, for all its newfangled effects, touchingly old-fashioned in its reverence for the Jules Verne novel that inspired it. – Anthony Lane, New Yorker, Jun 24, 2010

This Movie was very exciting and I enjoyed it very much. 3-D or 2-D it is a good movie either way. Its a cool, Fast pace, Adventure Movie. It was alot better than I though and I highley recomemd this film to anyone 6 and higher. But I do not recomend buying it. Its only fun watching it once.

Pointless in 2D

This movie is very pointless in 2D, so I would reccomend seeing it on DVD with the glasses. Click yes if you agree.
