    You have to be careful when you remake a much-loved classic, especially one whose charm is partially derived from its vintage and genre ambiance. The 1959 "Journey to the Centre of the Earth" is a classic of camp sci-fi awash with enchanting (rather than persuasive) special effects, lurid sets, sceneries and backgrounds and a charismatic performance from James Mason. Its drawbacks were hammy performances from Pat Boone and others, shaky moments in the plot (the love affair) and other genre hilarity. Unfortunately for the 2008 remake, "Journey to the Centre of the Earth 3D", makes the '59 that little bit more amiable,and the persistence with the CGI is a real problem. Now camp is replaced by comedy, which is ironically taken more seriously. Brendan Fraser is no Mason, the special effects are an eyesore, occasionally standing out from the rest of the film. That, however, might have been different in the cinema, I have only seen the film on DVD. Despite this, we are talking about a PG here, and it is made for children, not children and cinema aficionados or sci-fi geeks. And whilst the latter might not enjoy this film too much, it does retain enough of the adventure of Jules Verne's book to hold the attention of younger viewers, who no doubt will like the dinosaurs, insects and fissures the film has to offer.

Director Eric Brevig's adaptation of the classic Jules Verne adventure story is the first live-action feature to be shot in digital 3-D. His scientific theories rubbished by his eminent colleagues, Professor Trevor Anderson (Brendan Fraser) sets off on a backpacking trip to Iceland to get away from it all with his nephew Sean (Josh Hutcherson) and local guide Hannah (Anita Briem). Stumbling across a previously unknown cave system, the explorers soon find themselves journeying deeper and deeper into the earth's core, on a rollercoaster ride into an unknown world populated by man-eating plants, lava lakes, and some seriously hungry dinosaurs.
