Goofs

In the opening sequence when they are trying to trap the clown in the office, several quick shots show a waistband of grey briefs or boxer briefs on Jupiter Jones, when the three are blown backwards into the metal shelves by the blast, Jupiter lands face down between Peter and Rob, in the next shot as the shelves begin to topple towards them, Jupiter's body is lying on his side with an inch or two of white boxers showing and further away from the shelves than his friends, then as the shot changes, he is on his stomach and directly between them again.

Recommended for "age 10 to 13 and haven't read the book". Adults stay away.

Reading earlier reviews I deduce that "T3I and the Secret of Terror Castle" does not meet their expectation. We easily understood that because this movie is really targeted to adolescent and below. If I was that age I would probably truly enjoy the movie but only if I haven't read the book yet. Kids would easily enjoy this movie because it's cool enough, such as the castle.

I was afraid to watch this movie for the reason that it would tarnish my good memory of Three Investigators and it prove to be true. When I was reading the book I always feel fascinated, the location, the characters it seems just magical. Watching the movie, it seems that it is a different world from the one in the book.

As I said that it would entertain many kids which just watching it now and never had reading the book before, we adults that enticed to watch it in which we demand something else than those kids will be disappointed. We adults hope to see interesting and eccentric characters and dialogs, that cool accents from Jupiter Jones, more peculiar music soundtrack, and more magical-feel but normal-looking towns would not get what we want. We won't even entertained by the case which is the one most interesting thing why we want to read the next novel.

For young men don't miss this one for it is really rare this kind of movie around: Kids Detective that investigate peculiar case without an element of Action in which nowadays detective movie would always combined.
