(at around 25 mins) Physics error: when calculating the distance of the depth, Trevor makes the mistake of multiplying 32*t², when it should be 16*t². It comes from the physics equation for distance x1=x0+v0*t+(1/2)*a*t², where a in this case is gravity, at 9.8 m/s², or 32ft/s². See more »
(at around 44 mins) When traveling through the subterranean forest, Trevor reads aloud from A Journey to the Center of the Earth, "The waterfalls, which for a long time could be heard flowing from afar, now cascaded along the towering canyon walls streaming along the rock with no end." This line does not occur in any English translation of the book. 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.
