a brilliant adaptation of one of Jules Verne's best novels
"Journey to the center of the Earth" is a successful adaptation of Jules Verne's famous novel. Apart from a few weaknesses (the love affair between Alex and his girlfriend), this is one of the science-fiction's highlights: awesome sceneries, stunning special effects (the dinosaurs) and especially an imposing performance of James Mason. The whole also introduces a touch of humor and gives a movie which Jules Verne would have probably liked.
