I took my 4 year old to see this in the cinema yesterday, he absolutely was enthrualled by it. Unlike Wall.e and Clone wars, he just hasn't stopped going on about it after leaving the cinema, it's revitalised his interest in dinosaurs and put the biggest smile on his face.
ISo, if your looking for something for the kids this is the one, good fun all the way through, a real rollercoaster ride.
Watching a 3D film in 2D is a bit cheesy. All the parts where the effects are in place just seem contrived and this film is no different.
Guess what's in it? Go on. Yep the kewpie doll goes to the they guy at the back who said a yo-yo. Congratulations sir. The yo-yo is actually thrown at the camera enough times that you start to think that they are really over doing it. So okay we get it. It's a 3D movie.
Let's make this very clear. There's nothing original about this film at all. It even has a mineshaft rollercoaster ride straight out of Indiana Jones, but after saying all that I will still have to raise my hand and admit that it's a cracking yarn in the style of the old time matinees. It's a modern day boys own adventure that really keeps the pace up from start to finish. Brendan Frazer even manages to redeem himself after the awful latest instalment in The Mummy films. I've had bowel movements that have held my attention longer than that, but I digress. There's plenty of silly inoffensive wisecracks in this that the whole family can enjoy and the action never goes to the extent of frightening the bejesus out of the kids.
Buy it and get the popcorn in and watch it as a family night in and you'll not hear many complaints.
I have seen this at the cinema 2 times and I thought that it was great, I am definatly Pre-Ordering this when available, Brendan Fraser and Josh Hutcherson are great actors and have made this film even more enjoyable for the whole family.
Also the effects of this film are great and I really hope that you can buy this film in the 3D version as well as the normal for the real effect.
On a journey to find out what happened to his missing brother, a scientist, his nephew and their guide discover a fantastic lost world in the centre of the earth.
This is a great Saturday afternoon flick, and will keep the kids amused. It's not too scary, although it does have the adults looking at their watches now and then. Special effects are not bad, but the one big downer is that it is by far and away best seen in 3D, so it's not entirely great on DVD, but it's still worth a watch and I have no doubt we will be seeing this one on the TV at Christmas time for years to come.
