Movie Review: Journey To The Center Of The Earth

Journey To The Center of The Earth

Journey to the Center of The Earth is an exciting movie made in 2008, a recreation of the Movie and Book that Jules Verne wrote in 1864. The first movie was filmed in 1959, USA and directed by Henry Levin. The second movie filmed in 1978, Spain and directed by Juan Piquer Simón called Viaje al centro de la Tierra. In 2008 a director named Eric Brevig recreated one of the most famous stories of Jules Verne among a few other novels such as Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea (1870) and Around the World in Eighty Days (1873).

The movie stars Brendan Fraser as Trevor Anderson, Josh Hutcherson as Sean Anderson and Anita Briem as Hannah Ásgeirsson in which they take vacation to find Trevor’s lost brother who went missing while following clues to the book “Journey to the Center of he Earth”. Skeptical to what they might find, Trevor and his nephew Sean embarked in finding clues that his brother left behind In the beginning they meet Hanna Ásgeirsson, a Mountain Guide, and traveled up a mountain in which they became trapped in a cave during a thunderstorm. Finally discovering that this mysterious world is real and dangerous.

The question which fills all our minds is, Is this world real? Are there more than magma in the center of the earth? Questions of the unknown is still greater then the answers. This movies is great to watch with adults or kids.
