lacks thrills and excitement
24 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

America has just purchased Alaska. Martha Dennison (Victoria Pratt) hires adventurer scientist Jonathan Brock (Ricky Schroder) to lead an expedition to find her husband Edward Dennison (Peter Fonda) who is lost in a mine near a lake under a dormant volcano in Alaska. Abel Brock (Steven Grayhm) joins his uncle leaving behind his girlfriend in search for adventure. Local Sergei Petkov (Mike Dopud) helps guide them on their journey. The mine can only be seen on one day of the year.

This is a lower budget re-envisioning of the classic story. By itself, it's not a deal breaker. It's an adventure no matter where it is set. That's really what's missing. It doesn't have the thrills of adventure or the awes or the wonder. They are trying to make a TV movie with next to nothing stretching out the story. There are lots of scenes of wilderness and underground walking. It has no tension. It gets really boring and never picks up the pace. The underground oasis is basically outside with some yellowing and slight changing of the sky. The yellowing makes the movie look even cheaper. None of it is too impressive. There are attempts at CG creatures that look 2nd rate. The whole movie is 2nd rate.
