Journey to the Center of the Earth (2008)

Movie re-make using brilliant, if predictable, digital effects.

Based on the Jules Verne book, which, in and of itself as a read - offers plenty of excitement, especially for its time.

Brandon Fraser at his 'silly best' + two supporting actors who are not altogether unlikable.
The three come across as a believably compatible trio on a wholly unbelievable adventure.

This film's ultimate appeal is that it qualifies as HighlyLite N' Mindless Entertainment for a SuperLazy Sunday afternoon. Much like The Mummy, The Mummy Returns and The Scorpion King.

To be sure, 2008's Journey to the Center of the Earth scores as a fun romp - and worth another viewing (did I actually say that?!?).
Next time, in 3-D.
I already have four pair of 3-D glasses at the ready... anyone care to join me?

One word movie review: Cliché.
(which is not always a bad thing, btw)
