When Trevor opens the box of stuff belonging to his lost brother, he pulls out an odd wooden item, declares that he doesn't know what it is, and sets it aside. The item is a Holmes Stereoscope, a device designed in 1861 by the American physician and writer, Oliver Wendell Holmes for the viewing of so-called "stereocards". A stereocard is like a postcard which has a left-view and right-view photograph mounted alongside one another. When viewed through this stereoscope, the photographs are merged into one 3-D image (a process later adopted for the ViewMaster viewers and cards). The Holmes Stereoscope was a great source of entertainment in the Victorian era. It was, in a sense, the home entertainment center of its day, as it transported its users to exotic places all over the world. Thus, a character in a 3-D movie having no idea what a stereoscope is makes for a cute little 3-D in-joke. See more »
Iceland has no minerals worth mining, let along vast mines as depicted in the film. Iceland is all volcanic rock which is not valuable for mining. See more »

It is "Rick O'Connell Goes Deep Underground", since Brendan Fraser is, well, Brendan Fraser. The kid (from RV) is really pretty good. My 8 yr old and his friend loved it. Even my 19 yr old daughter enjoyed it.
The 3D made me remember my fear of heights...after the theater remembered to use the special screen and restarted the movie, 10 minutes into it!
Don't expect more than a cool kids'movie and it is well worth the money. The plot gives you many opportunities to suspend disbelief. You'll also see several prototype amusement park rides!
But if you see it, you MUST see the 3D version. That much is awesome.
