Top critical review

I was taken by surprise. A science based sci fi to the centre of the earth? NO. It starts with the Scots guard in Edinburough and gets worse from there. Singing women at Edinburough University library, ballards on the way down to a very old and unconvincing centre of the earth. It was unscientific, abismal history ...nothing more than Hollywood romantic fuffle ...to la di da music.
If you have to spend a Sunday afternoon with a Granny and you are a sci fi freek then take your Granny to see this. This film attempts gravity, but has the same credibility as Mary Popins!
