Only see this movie in 3-D. Otherwise, stay away, because the fun is all in the effects. Brendan Fraser plays a scientist whose missing brother believed that Jules Verne’s novel was real. When a seismic occurrence matches his brother’s notes, he takes off to Iceland with his nephew (Josh Hutcherson) in tow. They fall into the center of the Earth, and you go, “Wow!” because the 3-D effects are a blast. If you are sitting in a 2-D screening, you go, “BFD!” because without the 3-D, it’s an amusement-park ride sitting still. Fraser makes a fun protagonist, and some of the sequences truly dazzle. See it in theaters, because watching it on DVD will probably blow.
