Did You Know?


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 »


Sheriff Hanson: Terror Castle. Nobody's allowed up there. It's private property. And if I see you around here again, you'll be getting more than a warning. Don't eyeball me, boy!
Bob Andrews: Yes, sir.

User Reviews

I think it is good, it have all features but not a good plot for three investigators
5 November 2011 | by arafat_akash96See all my reviews

I am a teenager, and the movie is surely for teenagers. I read three investigators book a lot of. I think this movie has almost all the things three investigators have included theirs card,rocky beach, sulvage yard and much more. But this movie's plot is not completely full. It is missing some three investigator's action and thriller. But overall i am happy to see them !! xD I wish there will be some more movie like this by three investigators.The previous one is not so good. This is better than the previous one.Jupitar jones character is very awesome, on other hand bob's character is not so good. But a true fan of the three investigators will surely like it.
