Same Planet. Different World.


Journey to the Center of the Earth
Based loosely on Jules Verne's classic novel, but with a twist.

From that point on, it's a matter of trying to stay alive while finding their way back to the surface, as they get to relive moments from Indiana Jones and Jurassic Park.

eye Weekly
Jason Anderson quote iconLess a scientific expedition than a geologically themed amusement-park ride, their subterranean trip offers plenty of opportunities for acts of derring-do but few surprises. While tykes won’t mind so much — T. Rex spit always thrills the primary-school crowd — grown-ups already spoiled by the quality of Kung Fu Panda and Wall-E this summer may grow fussy and listless. Be ready to placate them with extra snacks.

Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconRemove a star from the rating if you take this Journey without wearing 3-D glasses. That's where the real fun comes in. Otherwise you have a family-friendly retelling of Jules Verne's 1864 novel in a romp that is lazily content to connect the dots instead of breaking new ground.

Tomatometer quote iconModern visuals and an old fasioned storyline make this family adventure/comedy a fast-paced, kitschy ride.
