Goofs

As with most movies depicting giant versions of normally small animals, this one gets it wrong. If the size of an animal is doubled, the surface area of its skin is squared and its weight is cubed. Since the weight of the creature increases by a far larger degree than its other proportions, a giant insect, for example, would be unable to stand or move (this is why elephants' legs are so thick).

On a scale of 1 to 10 this one owes ME points
22 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Picture a pirate captain (NOT Long John Silver) with really long hair and a constant 1 day stubble of beard. Now make him try to talk like the most famous pirate ever (played by Robert Newton) and have him do it very badly.

Picture beautiful Thailand with lush vegetation. Now superimpose cheesy giant CGI critters that look like they were thrown together in an afternoon of programming while playing the original "DOOM!" game.

Picture Jules Verne rolling over. And over. And over. Which he undoubtedly did during the writing of a script that ignores both the ideas and the spirit of his masterful book. I'm accustomed to seeing novels hacked at to transition them from print to film, but this is the very epitome of a hatchet job. Necessary characters are dropped completely, and unnecessary characters are added. The plot has been changed in not-so-subtle ways. And while I have great respect for Patrick Stewart and his talent this movie even makes him look bad.

The kids may enjoy this simply because they are kids, but this is not something I would recommend for a serious fan of Jules Verne. They might hurt themselves while they are kicking the TV.
