Editorial Reviews

Venture into the center of the earth, to a land where dinosaurs still roam and the threat of danger is always looming. Dr. Theodore Lytton (Treat Williams), a daring and courageous scientist, heads and expedition to find the missing husband of the rich and beautiful Alice Hastings. Joined by his bright, but inexperienced nephew, Jonas (Jeremy London), and the trailblazing guide McNiff, the team descends into the sweltering, unknown depths of the earth. In this underground world, where fierce dinosaurs thrive, they find the forceful and enterprising Casper Hastings (Bryan Brown) reigning over a primitive human civilization. Having made enemies with a neighboring village, and also with the Sauroids, a race of manlike reptiles, Casper's people are on the verge war. In their quest to return to the surface, the team's lives are threatened by savage tribal warriors, bloodthirsty raptors, and the fearsome Sauroids. Based on the Jules Verne classic, this action-packed and heart-pounding story is a timeless and unforgettable adventure.

Format: DVD
I'm absolutely amazed at the overwhelming number of poor reviews this movie seems to have generated. I feel strongly that this movie has a lot going for it, but to truly appreciate it, you have to begin with one thing in mind: This is NOT the Jules Verne classic! This movie is not an attempt to re-create the original story (or even the classic movie starring James Mason), so if you purchase or rent this movie believing that is what you're going to find- forget it. It seems that the majority of reviewers are spending too much time trying to grade this movie against the original- their main dissapointment stemming from the fact that it is NOT the original. I believe, that if viewed as a stand-alone sci-fi miniseries, this has a lot going for it: A well-written story with interesting and well-balanced characters, stunning scenery and visual effects, a fine pacing, and interesting concepts. The "suarians" are very interesting creatures, and are visually stunning in execution. If the Krofft boys ever eventually get around to producing their "promised" LAND OF THE LOST movie, these creatures make a good basis for a more up-to-date Sleestak: fast, lethal, and deadly.

The achievements of animation in adapting this story in preceding years would continue to overshadow the resumption of live action versions in the 1980s and 1993. In early 1996, executive producer Robert Halmi, Sr., whose Hallmark Entertainment was simultaneously making a new version of 20,000 LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA for CBS (which eventually formed the basis for a two-hour telefilm and a one-hour children's special the next year) announced a two-hour version of JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE EARTH for the Sci-Fi Channel, from a script by John Ireland. In the wake of the commercial success of the USA Network's four-hour mini-series of MOBY DICK (1998), the project was switched to USA, the Sci-Fi Channel's parent company, and the two-hour telefilm was expanded to four hours (including commercials) with Thomas Baum enlarging Ireland's script. Director George Miller, already attached to the project, was eager for the change, and produced with Connie Collins. Shooting began in April 1999 in Australia and New Zealand on a $12 million budget, and the miniseries premiered five months later on September 14 and 15.

The setting is given as 1868 and adapts the nationality and names of its protagonists to the cast. Instead of the German Professor Otto Lidenbrock, the hero is the American name-alike Theodore Lytton. As portrayed by 47-year-old Treat Williams, Lytton is as much an action hero as part of the world of science, thereby surmounting the unlikelihood of a man of his constitution suriving the expedition. He studied with Darwin in the Galapagos, and is a rather dominating father-figure to his initially fearful young nephew, Jonas, who is indispensable to his uncle for having a facility for languages that Lytton lacks.

...my expectations were low, I haven't seen the original or red the book - so I actually enjoyed this movie. It's not Lord Of The Rings, but the effects are actually rather good, it starts a little slow, but after 30 minutes or so it becomes rather entertaining - the acting could have been better, but the cast function ok for a tv-production - I really liked the "underworld-ocean", in my opinion it looks beautiful, and the blue forest as well - the green creatures are done very good - but if you are curious on this movie, don't expect too much from a tv-production like this one is, but if you like adventure and fantasy - you might enjoy it as I did. It's highly recommended fot those who like Hallmark-productions.

This movie is so bad. The orginal with Pat Boone and James Mason is so much better. I can't understand why it is not on DVD.

I don't understand why Fox or whomever owns the rights to the 1959 production of this Jules Vernes adventure has not realease it on DVD- the film was shot in spectacular cinemascope and must be seen letterboxed- Bernad Herrmans amazing score deserves the full stereo treatment- and the movie it self one of my all time favorites is a must for every science fiction- adventure- kid friendly collection

Both these movies have some family entertainment value. I'm not sure I would recommend you buy them unless you all ready have the original movies with these names. These newer versions probably had bigger budgets but they don't hold a candle to the classic 1959 version of "Journey to the Center of the Earth" with James Mason, Arlene Dahl, and Pat Boone and the 1963 version of "Jason and the Argonauts" with Todd Armstrong and Nancy Kovack.

Okay, this movie will definitely offend Verne purists, so if you are looking for a straight-from-text adaptation of the story, skip over this film. However, if you are like me, and have no other expectations for a made-for-tv-movie than it be enjoyable and the actors don't grate on your ears, check this movie out. I thought it was hilarious. The costumes and scenery are definitely out there and the whole story is a light-hearted fantasy. Plus, it's got two love plotlines (both with men pining for supposedly unattainable women). Sure, you know how it will end, and yes, it is not one of the most intelligent plots, but it's not boring or annoying! I thought it was sweet and humorous. Parents with kids, the special effects and dinosaurs will keep 'em entertained and you'll find it amusing enough to stay awake.
