3D thriller has best of both worlds

3D thriller has best of both worlds

American college professor Trevor Anderson (Brendan Fraser) is still haunted by the disappearance of his brother Max (Jean Michel Pare) 10 years ago on a field expedition to Iceland in ‘Journey To The Centre Of The Earth’.

During a surprise visit from his truculent nephew, Sean (Josh Hutcherson), Trevor discovers Max’s handwritten notes inside a copy of Jules Verne’s novel and he reluctantly agrees to take the teenager to the frozen north.

With local guide Hannah (Anita Briem) leading the way, they stumble upon a cave system that leads deep beneath the surface.

‘Journey To The Centre Of The Earth’ marries state-of-the-art special effects with old-fashioned family morals.

Two pairs of 3D glasses are included with the DVD.

Rating: 3/5
