This movie, based on the Jules Verne novel, is not to be confused with the Brendan Fraser 3-D movie or the cheapie by The Asylum.
Rick Schroder portrays Jonathon Brock, an archeologist and amateur fisticuffs fighter, who is hired by the rich Victoria Dennison (Victoria Pratt of MUTANT X, DAYBREAK) to find her explorer husband, Edward (Peter Fonda), who disappeared while exploring a volcano. They go to Alaska, the site of the volcano, and with the help of Sergie, a Russian, find the entrance to the crevice which leads down to "The Center of the Earth".
Well, as this was probably shot in a granite mine there's not any cave formations, so their trip downwards is somewhat lackluster--and it doesn't take very long for them to get to the "Center", which looks to be a big cave that looks almost exactly like Alaska up above, except for this weird amber light.
They do discover Edward Dennison, who is now the leader of a tribe of Tlingit (Native Americans), who made their way down there hundreds of years ago. This is interesting but I would have liked to see more of the prehistoric animals they talk about. The only thing we do see if when Brock, Victoria and his nephew, Abel, ride down a river on a raft and encounter prehistoric lizard birds and a type of plesiosaur. The cgi effect are very good and made me want to see more.
This version isn't as good as the original film, with James Mason and Pat Boone, nor the recent 3-D version with Brendan Fraser, but it isn't bad, either.
