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, so 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 shut down for a few days. See more »

Professor Trevor Anderson (Brendan Fraser) receives his teenager nephew Sean Anderson (Josh Hutcherson) that will spend ten days with him while his mother Elizabeth Anderson (Jane Wheeler) prepares to move to Canada. She gives a box to Trevor that belonged to his missing brother Max Anderson and Trevor finds a book with references to the last journey of his brother. He decides to follow the steps of Max with Sean and they travel to Iceland, where they meet the guide Hannah Ásgeirsson (Anita Briem). While climbing a mountain, there is a thunderstorm and they protect themselves in a cave. However, a lightening collapses the entrance and the trio is trapped in the cave. They seek an exit and falls in a hole, discovering a lost world in the center of the Earth.
This nth version of the classic novel of Jules Verne is an entertaining adventure. The characters are nice and there is a strong chemistry between Brendan Fraser and the unknown Anita Briem. However, the strongest part of this enjoyable movie is certainly the special effects. I have just seen this movie on DVD, but for those viewers that saw it in 3D in the movie theaters, the impact was certainly bigger and bigger. My vote is six.
Title (Brazil): "Viagem ao Centro da Terra" ("Journey to the Center of the Earth")
