Journey to the Center of the Earth
Source: Catholic News Service
Enjoyable update of Jules Verne's classic 1864 novel with a present-day geology research professor (Brendan Fraser), his late explorer brother's son (Josh Hutcherson) and their Icelandic guide (Anita Briem) finding themselves deep below the earth's surface, reliving most of the incidents from the book. Though not as memorable as the Hollywood 1959 version, this retread, from director Eric Brevig, provides plenty of nifty special effects – which are especially effective in the 3-D presentation used in some theaters – and together with personable leads and squeaky clean content make this wholesome family viewing for all but the very youngest viewers who might be frightened by some of the intense, though bloodless, action sequences. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-I – general patronage. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG – parental guidance suggested. Some material may not be suitable for children.
