When Trevor lights up the flare and the wall sets on fire because of the magnesium he's supposed to burn himself, the scene in the movie was the second take of the day and in that take Brendan Fraser did burn himself for real. He was holding the road flare too perpendicular and too close in relation of the wall, the flames bounced on the wall and blew back to his bare hand. The screams he makes were a mix of real pain and acting, the production was shot down for a few days. See more »
Apart from the fact that the existence of the zero-gravity "magnetic field" which Sean reaches is implausible, everything seems to float around there, including the rocks and even Sean's Swiss Army knife. Although, Sean doesn't and is still subject to gravity and in danger of falling into the abyss. His head torch also drops into the chasm while he is clinging to the overturning floating rock. However; the pocket knife is metal, and is it plausible then that to an extent that the rocks are too (as they are "magnetic", and therefore likely metallic). Sean and his head torch are not, therefore would not be able to float as they are not a part of the floating magnetic field. See more »
So I just got back from a screening and I thought the movie was OK. Overall, it was just the regular adventure-movie. The actors weren't bad, but I had seen better performances of them. The story is kind of a standard one. A guy with no close relatives has to watch over a boy and goes on an adventure with him. I'm not gonna spoil the ending, but I'm probably not gonna be able to... Now, I do have to say that I wasn't bored during the movie; it was acted out well enough, and it had its thrilling moments. But those things wouldn't be enough to recommend it for, though. My main concern was that some scenes were just too obviously made to make the movie adventurous. (like a 'rollercoaster-ride' in a mine). The only thing I would recommend it for would be the Real-D. It's a huge difference with the regular (IMAX-)3D. The image is crystal clear, and it all looks very realistic, and it seemed like some shots were especially made for the 3D-effect (which really made me jump sometimes). So, if you're interested in new techniques, go see it in 3D, it's an interesting experience. The movie itself is just not really worth your money. It's a regular adventure-movie with good SFX, but nothing original or special in it.
