I love Jules Verne's books and this is my favourite movie adaptation. Despite being outdated the classic set designs and special effects are far more interesting to me than the new CGI movies.

I asume this australian blu ray release is exactly the same "Twilight classics" released in the States. The specs are pretty much the same, but in this case at a much more reasonable price. In my opinion is a shame for major studios treating their classics like "collector items" just to as an excuse to raise the price.

The video quality is just a little bit better than the dvd version. Soft picture, bland colors, no sharpness and the audio is just ok, but according to proffesional reviewers that's due to the film elements. In my memory the movie looked a lot sharper when I saw it on cinemas. No extras AT ALL, appart from Bernard Herrman's wonderful score isolated and a trailer.

"Journey to the Center of the Earth" deserves a 'real collector's edition" with tons of extras and a 'real' digitally remastered print. Otherwise, you're more than ok if you already have the dvd. Even better because at least the dvd has subtitles. This BD release do not. The 3 starts are for the movie, and there would be 5 if the release were better

Intrepid professor Sir Oliver S. Lindenbrook leads an expedition towards the center of the Earth via an extinct Icelandic volcano. The journey is sure to be fraught with danger and little do they know that their trip will take in many unchartered wonders...both good and bad!

As adventure films go, Journey To The Center Of The Earth has few peers, it's a wonderful film based around the Jules Verne story of the same name. There are no hidden agendas here, no wry social commentary or satirical edginess, it is pure fantastical entertainment that wants you to enjoy its science heart whilst you have a blast following this group into the wondrous unknown. Lost cities, prehistoric lizards, underground oceans, crystal caves, sand mines, murder, sabotage, and on it goes for just over two hours of delightful movie making, it even has time for a bit of cheeky sexual tom foolery for the knowing adult.

I'm sure the likes of Spielberg & Lucas were nodding in approval back in the day.

The sets, the sound, and the special effects were all nominated for Academy Awards, and sure enough all may well seem tame by todays bloated standards, but this is 1959 and let your mind be back to that time and you surely will be taken in by this joyous experience. While I must also mention that location footage shot in the beautiful Carlsbad Caverns that adds to the dynamic feel of the picture. Lead acting duties fall to the irrepressible James Mason as Lindenbrook, perfectly cast as he nails all the traits of this dyed in the wood professor. Support comes from Pat Boone, Arlene Dahl (the colour photography perfectly showing her piercing eyes), Peter Ronson and star of the show Gertrude The Duck.

It was magical to me as a child, it's still as magical to me now I'm in my advancing years, wonderful indeed. 9/10

I know that this is an old film but I still enjoyed it, although these days people will call it corny , it is still an enjoyable and light hearted film to pass a couple of hours. Why not take a trip to the center of the earth and find out for your self if you enjoy it.

Thrilling, an old-fashioned marvel from the days when marvellous really meant marvellous. Necessary exposition at the beginning can probably be skipped on subsequent viewings for immediate plunge into--well--you know where.

I grew up watching this film every time it came on TV. I have never out grown this classic. None of the various "Journey to the Center of the Earth" films are accurate adaptations of the book. In fact I was a bit disappointed reading the book after seeing the film. It lacked the drama and conflict of the motion picture. The acting was great, even down to the supporting cast.

I have always believed this is a film that could be done better with all the modern CG stuff. To date it hasn't. While the backdrop has gotten better, the storyline and acting does not come up to snuff with this 1959 studio film where the rocks are flat and smooth for safe walking. The soundtrack is the old time drama/thriller music used in every film. It worked very well.

For my money, this is the one to own. Good movie for the whole family to enjoy.

An adventure movie based on Jules Verne's classic story about a band of explorers incident-filled journey to the centre of the earth.
This film has everything you could ask for in a good movie - murder, intrigue, romance, volcanos, a cute little duck (?), Pat Boone singing (well nearly everything), James Mason doing what he did best (i.e. being James Mason) and much more.
Great special effects (for 1959) help make this a great film!

This is the best adaptation of my favorite Jules Verne book. I saw it no less than four times and every time I liked it even more. Below, more of my impressions, with some limited SPOILERS.

Jules Verne's books were a major feature of my childhood and teenage readings and I will always keep in memory the wonderful moments I spend in their company. Sailing the seven seas "In search of castaways", navigating "Twenty thousand leagues under the sea", building civilization from scratch on "Mysterious island", exploring Africa during the "Five weeks in a balloon", shooting in space and going "From the Earth to the Moon" and "Around the Moon", accepting the challenge to travel "Around the world in 80 days", trying desperately to survive with "Dick Sand, a captain at fifteen", spending "The begum's millions" and finally participating in "The chase of the golden meteor" - oh, the adventures I lived thanks to this great French writer... But the one that I always cherished the most, to the point of reading the book at least ten times, was "The journey to the center of the Earth"...

If you didn't read this book yet, I sincerely recommend to do it, if possible before watching this film - but on another hand, as the film changed the story a lot, it is also possible to see the movie before reading the novel.

In the film the story begins in Edinburgh, Scotland, in 1880. During the examination of an unusual sample of volcanic rock, professor Sir Oliver Lindenbrook (James Mason), a very famous and quite eccentric geologist at the University of Edinburgh and his young student and more or less research assistant Alec McEwan (Pat Boone), find inside a plumb bob bearing a cryptic inscription.
