Unoriginal, bland, but decent.

The first thing you see in this movie is bad CG. The second thing you see in this movie is that the bad CG was a dream sequence. Then the protagonist brushes his teeth in front of a mirror. The only thing that could make it worse is a sassy teenager. Then a teenager shows up and says, "It's not a Game Boy, it's a PSP." It's not a very good introduction.

The strange thing is that the teenager becomes my favorite character, mostly because he is the only character who changes. It's a lot like a Hallmark movie where some old bloke teaches a kid what outside is, but it is something. The rest of the characters are don't change and are fairly stereotypical, but they are functional. The banter between them is a good break from whatever action that happens, and they don't do anything massively out of character. Sometimes, the action is the direct result of a mistake a character makes, which is pretty good for this type of movie. It's not terrible, but it could be much better.

Speaking of action, that's the main point of the movie. Unfortunately, all of the action reeks of bad CG and greenscreen. There's usually something jumping straight at the camera, some brief struggle, and a deus ex machina that ends it. Not much of it is very consequential and seems mostly to be filler, since the plot itself isn't that much.

Overall, it's a bland story with bland action, and just enough character to make it bearable. It doesn't do anything to stand out, but you could do much worse. Just skip the opening, and start with them in Iceland.

A very fun adventure through the bowels of unrealism

This film tries to adapt to the cinema the sci-fi novel "Journey to the Center of the Earth" by Jules Verne. Book and author are even abundantly referred in the film. However, it creates a new story around the book that is a far cry from what was written by Verne. To begin with, this film doesn't happen in the nineteenth century but rather during our time and the original novel was about a scientific expedition into a volcano, not an occasional incident that runs by chance. The script is pretty basic and far-fetched, runs over science in favor of dramatic effect and abuses the usual clichés of adventure movies, with poorly constructed and undeveloped characters escaping from certain death always at the last moment. There is a lot of silly stuff in this movie and it harms it's quality. The film has a nice cinematography and the fast pace that it takes, along with its short lenght, helps to make it more enjoyable because we forget mistakes and failures that we would be thinking about, focusing on what is happening.

About the actors I can only say that the cast is regular, tries hard but doesn't have much quality material on which to show talent. Brendan Fraser is the sounding name here, but it doesn't surprise the audience. His character is similar to what he had in "The Mummy", reason why it doesn't require a major effort of the actor, whose career fell into the doldrums after his sudden success. Anita Briem is a perfect stranger to me but plays the hot girl contested by the good guys while Josh Hutcherson is the revolted teenager.

In short, this movie is the typical adventure movie in which nothing is credible but makes the public have fun, with appropriate doses of humor and action, some silly romance and a forgettable story. Worth watching if you just want some quick entertainment.

Great anime, 10/10

Would recommend made in abyss. So far only 2 episodes are out, but I thought it was fine They're pretty much trying to explore a bottomless pit. It probably isn't bottomless, but no one has been to the bottom. There are otherworldly beasts Sounds interesting enough for me >Spelunking anime
