4.0 out of 5 stars Ambitious Pilot Feb. 21 2007
This was a very promising and ambitious pilot for a TV series, based on the novel and early film, "Journey to the Center of the Earth." It presented loveable characters and a workable new world in which to cast an imaginative TV series, something that would win both fantasy and Sci-Fi audiences. The pilot was a great success, much more so than expected. Yet, the series never got the 'go ahead', as strange as it may seem. That deserves looking into.

Anyway, a nice TV movie for fans of the imagination.

What the heck? Why has Treat Williams been making such lousy movies? And George Miller? Is this the same George Miller who made the Mad Max movies? I can't believe that the man who gave us "The Road Warrior" made this embarrassing movie, too. It seems to be true, though....
This is a harmless enough movie, but prone to sentimentality, and very predictable plot contrivances. The villains are a breed of bipedal reptiles with huge claws and frightening teeth who, when they jump our heroes, merely jump them and try to wrestle them to the ground...they don't bite. They don't slash. They wrestle. At one point, Treat Williams appears to kick off the "head" of one of these beasts...or to knock off the headpiece of the costume. (You don't see more than a few of these creatures at once, although we are to believe there is a large society of them...clearly, the producer did not have an adequate costume budget!)
I like camp, and there is a certain campy element to this movie--intentional, I hope. The subterranean tribe of humans who take our heroes, for instance, in are made up of brutish, hairy, grunting men, and utter babes in two-piece bikinis. They have wonderful midriffs. And they are not the least bit sexually bashful. What a break for our travellers! If this is deliberate camp, it's played too straight really to work.
I dunno...rent it for the kids, I guess. But don't incur any late fees with this one. You'll be sorry.

1.0 out of 5 stars What an agonizing way to spend 139 minutes! June 29 2000
Format:VHS Tape
I simply cannot believe the producers of this film had the nerve to call it JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE EARTH! My family and I are purists when it comes to films based on classic literature and so needless to say when we saw this video for sale we purchased it immediately sight unseen (a mistake we will not likely repeat). Expecting a delightful adaptation of a fine novel for the whole family we were horrified by the absurd handling of Jules Verne's work (shame on Hallmark).
Aside from the poor acting and shallow, one dimensional and unbelievably predictable characters you have once again Hollywood's ridiculous predilection with taking the previous century's works and turning them into politically correct pablum for the superficial minds of the late twentieth century movie watcher.
Rebel against the presupposition that the average viewer isn't interested in good literature being accurately adapted for the screen. Spare yourself this piece and watch one of A&E's recent great productions or one of those done by PBS or the BBC. Let this film find its way to oblivion where it belongs.

UGHHH! How shall I begain? This movie is one of the worst versions of the story that I have ever seen! Just how is this "based on the novel by Jaules Virn"? What,because the title is the same? My problems with this film? Shall I count the ways:
1.In the book,they're guide was Icelandish.In this one,he's Scottish(!) with an accent so thick that half the time it sounds like hes barking.Not only that but he fills every stereotype of a scott,e.g Drinks alot,eats meat raw,is crude,wears a beard, etc.I'm surpprized that he didn't wear a celt and play the bag pipes.
2.In the book,no dinosaurs! Sure there were sea serpents,giant turtules,and mamoths.but not really any dinosaurs.In this "movie",dinosaurs are just about as common as air.Including dinosaurs in a story is good,but make them plusable.I don't fake-looking computer animated dinosaurs would evole down there with out change.Personaly I think the dinosaurs looked more realistic as lizards with horns and fins glued to them.
3.The computer-animated dinosaur the crew kills is taken out with one shot.Right.And his comment afterwards is "I'm sorry,but all of my reserch tells me is these things are stricly vegetarians".I smirked at that immortal line.
4.When in the book do dinosaurs evole into intelligent beings parelell to humans? Plus they are ugly so they have got to be evil.
5.When in the book do they ever encounter a human tribe that is white? The only thing that I can think of is the giants which keep Mamoths as pets.
6.The producers sat down and thought "Now how to we make a redwood forest look like a jungle at the center of the earth...I know! Let's spray paint it blue!
7.The love interest:The native red-hair women has virtully no facal expression at all!

5.0 out of 5 stars ROCKS... CLEAN...! May 3 2000
By Joe M.
This is one of my favorite movies. It has everything that you would expect. And the girl in the movie is quite beautiful. It's not her looks, although they are nice, it's her persona and the idea of her that is so attractive. The first five or six times that I watched it, I got chills whenever I saw her...! It's like when the person you care for touches your hand for the first time... WOW ... It's a beautiful feeling.
And young Jonas Litton (Jeremy London) following his uncle into the earth is searching himself and life, finding out who he is and how he fits into the world. Very innocent and personally nostalgic.
Treat Williams' performance is amazing. If you didn't know Treat was an actor you'd think that they went out and found a professor and asked him to play the part of Theodore Litton. So convincing is his performance that its scary..!
Although parts of this movie are kinda cheesy and the caves underground are mysteriously lighter than they should be it is still a good movie.
I recommend it to everyone who has a creative and imaginative spirit. It's a fun ride.

Whoever directed this movie should find a new career. It is terrible. I don't understand why the orginal with Pat Boone is not on DVD. It does deserve 5 stars.
