The movie itself has nothing to do with the books, except for the characters. There isn't any resemblance to the storyline from the first Three Investigators book and this. See more »
At the beginning of the movie the Rolls Royce is seen driving on the right side of the road. At the end of the movie, as the boys return from their trip, the Rolls drives on the left side, which is wrong for California, but correct for South Africa, where the movie was filmed. See more »
the three investigators find a mystery video left by some familiar faces, which leads them investigate the mystery of terror castle
As a child I read many of the three investigators books, being my favourite series. Discovering that a film had been made about the characters I had grown to love was wonderful, but would it live up to my expectations? Sadly, it was a little disappointing. There was good action, and Im sure children will find it entertaining, but I feel much of the treasures in the book are missing. The exciting headquarters, hidden in the midst of a junk yard, only accessible by several mysterious tunnels is reduced to a caravan out in the open. Jupiter Jones, a brilliant mind, full of sharp remarks and the lead role in the book is barely intelligent and just dull and grey. The dialogue was also put together without giving much sense of feeling. Its not a big Hollywood production, so hats of for what they achieved, and I'm glad for the chance to have watched the books come to life.
