  NOT 3d

| | See all shaun3d's reviews (1)

This is not a real 3d movie. it is Anaglyphic 3D (with crappy red-cyan cardboard glasses). those with a proper 3dtv (stereoscopic) look elsewhere. P.S the film is pretty good but don't buy it based on 3D

Great family movie in 3D comes with 2 pairs of glasses green and red (blue and red do not work), the 3D is fantastic i watched it on a projector and the 3D was in your face, beware you will have to dodge the things that come towards you and iam going to leave it at that so i dont spoil the movie for you.

  God film but its in old 3D not the New Digital one

| | See all Tmyrdal's reviews (1)

This film was realy good, but people most remember the 3D that are now on cinema is the new digital 3D and its not like the 3D before in the old days. Reason this film cant be played in 3D with the new 3D tvs is becouse its in the old 3D format that you need the old paper classes to see. The new TV that sels now with 3D is for the new ditital 3D that cinemas use now, the 3D thata re on Avatar and on Alice in wonderland is in new 3D but at the moment they are not out on bluray.

  Enjoyed the film but forget 3D

| | See all Mloclam1's reviews (1)

Having recently bought a Samsung 8000 Series TV I bought the film to experience the 3D effect. It was unwatchable with the 3D glasses provided with the TV with blue and green ghosting around objects. Using the glasses supplied with the film improved definition but colours were very weak. If you are considering buying this film for the 3D effect then I would not recommend it, however, in 2D I enjoyed the film.

  3D was great but not perfect

| | See all BrendanHughes's reviews (251)

Its a family film, kids would love this! the Film itself is average and the acting is average but the 3D effects are great and worth seing,but once you've seen them once you probably won't wanna see them again.If your looking for a bit of fun you will love it.

  Good Old Fashioned Fun

Like others have said this is a return to the Indiana Jones, Romancing the Stone, Goonies type of movie but is in no way in the same league as those classics. This was done on a strict budget and has loads of easy to spot mistakes. Its great to watch with the kids though and the dinosaur made my daughter jump like hell.

The 3-D is done like it was made in the 80's too with red and green glasses, now i dont know if its just me but i dont think it works at all! Things stand out slightly but seems to take all the sharpness and colour away so i dont see the point. If it looks good to you then i'll get my eyes tested ASAP and i apologise. Dont they use clear glasses for this though now? Hmm.

I liked the film as did the kids but dont expect a classic cos you aint gonna get it; For a tenner it's good fun.

Where to begin. I recently watched this film in both 2D & 3D. The 3D version was ok but lacks a lot of emphasis on the colours when using the 3D Glasses.
The special effects in this film should be known as effects as nothing special about them, vast majority of the movie shot on blue screen or green screen with what looks like no effort put in the try and blend the lighting and shadows properly in the film. Very week story line with very week acting makes this a movie to be avoided. Watch it on TV when it comes on but I wouldn't waste the money to by it on Blue Ray or DVD

  Another Studio Friendly Lame Adventure Movie.

Journey To The Center Of The Earth (2008) is a family adventure based on the classic Jules Verne novel. Brendan Fraser, Josh Hutcherson and Anita Briem star.

This movie is pretty lame. The special effects are nothing special. The story has lots of plot holes. The characters are shallow. The dialogue is silly. Brendan Fraser gives his usual beefcake on an adventure performance but fails miserably at generating charisma or charm.

Director Eric Brevig is best known for his special effects work and it shows as he has no idea of how to build any tension or excitement. Many of the scenes were filmed for 3D purposes and look strange if your viewing in normal vision.

Journey To The Center Of The Earth borrows heavily from adventure movies like Indiana Jones and Goonies but lacks the quality of them. This is a movie which will probably only appeal to young kids.

  Good feel movie

| | See all Stian7's reviews (3)

This is not a master piece, but I enjoyed watching it. It had a nice story and was actually touching at a point. It's alot of eye poping moments that really looks nice. And the story is better then ok.

I bought it for the 3D, I hoped for the new "RealD" technology, but it was more of the old with an upgrade. Instead of using blue and red, they have used magenta and green and it works 10 times better then the red/blue. You actually get 3D, but the green and magenta will, as you may understand, kill the colors. But not as bad as blue and red.

With blueray, space should not be a problem, so why only English subtitles? As a Norwegian I have no problem understanding English, but if I want to show it to kids, it might be problem.

Worth the money? £9.99 for a movie that you have to pay £19.99 for in stores.... you bet! A movie worth the money!
