Indiana Jones' journey to the centre of the Earth.
Well now, this was rather interesting - almost like a cross between Indiana Jones and Journey to the center of the Earth (not that I enjoyed the latter). Although the visual effects are not award-winning, they were rather well done and added significantly to a thoroughly enjoyable action adventure.

This is just plain good old-fashioned fun with great modern effects.
