Product Description

Product Description

Kenneth More stars in this spectacular 1977 adaptation of the classic novel by the master of Science Fiction Jules Verne. After finding a mysterious map, Professor Otto Lindenbrock (Kenneth More) leads an expedition deep below the Earth s surface to discover its long-hidden secrets. Joined by his niece Glauben (Ivonne Sentis), her fiancé Axel and a local guide, they explore vast caverns, uncover uncharted underground oceans and discover they are not alone. The land beneath the earth is filled with bizarre creatures and ravenous dinosaurs but there are also other humans there, including the mysterious scientist Olsen who seems to possess technology far in advance of Victorian Europe... Also known as Where Time Began , and filmed in stunning locations including the breathtaking Caves of Valporquero and the volcanic wastes of Lanzarote, this science fiction adventure classic has now been digitally restored and remastered and is available for the first time on UK DVD.

A travesty with some wasted talent and one or two redeeming features. It's a novelty to see Kenneth More acting with apparent amateurs. I am not being mean. Good direction could have improved it, but it is obvious that it has been partially dubbed into English, so that some of the shall we say 'less experienced' actors did not know what the others were saying, probably because they were speaking on set in another language. Kenneth More's performance is uncharacteristically laid back and low key. There is nothing of the Kenneth More we know and love from Reach For the Sky and Doctor in the House. He even looks a bit bewildered at times, and so he might. The elements of the Verne story are there, and the script wouldn't be too bad if it could be sharpened up a bit. But I did not recognise the Professor Lidenbrock of the novel. And why did one actor keep calling him: 'Lindenbrook'? There is potential for farce in some parts, but the lines and action are thrown away. It's just not tight enough. But if you love the story, or More, you will get something out of it -- if you watch it alone. It looks very much like a 1970s continental European film, shot on a small budget, not to say a production line. Oh, and I found the music repetitious and annoying.

There are some interesting additional science fiction type elements with the new character, the mysterious Olsen. He seems to be a borrowing from Bulwer Lytton or H. P. Lovecraft which are intriguing, but I wanted more of them. It was almost a kind of 'Jules Verne meets (1970s) Doctor Who'. The special effects let it down, though. I don't expect CGI in a 1970s film, but the 'dinosaurs' (?) are like muppets. They are like the John Pertwee Dinosaur invasion monsters; glove puppets.

Chose this rating because it is a very good family adventure
based some what on Jules Verne's story.
Kenneth Moore is excellent in the title role and for a 1970's
film it might not be CGI but the colour sets were very good.
