Journey to the Center of the Earth (2008) Dir Eric Brevig. Vue Cinema Hull

What if Jules Verne’s classic novel turned out to be true….


The 3D is the thing with this film. And it is mightily impressive, enhancing what is essentially a series of fantastic action sequences marred with cruddy dialogue and a creakingly predictable Uncle Bonding With Orphaned Teenage Nephew Whilst Getting The Girl Despite Being a Geek scenario.


3 D films used to be rubbish as witnessed by this correspondent in Belfast at a showing of one of the Freddie Kruger films in the ‘Eighties, but thanks to new, radical technology it becomes a real experience and is totally convincing as the viewer recoils or winces as appropriate.


 I look forward to seeing a proper film such as Batman or Wanted in such a format assuming it’s possible to combine the 3D affect with CGI.
