Silly, only 3D saves the day.
Only Hollywood could turn a campy Jules Verne masterpiece into something so incredibly boring! Where's the story? It just vanished into thin air. You certainly have plenty of acting talent. It's too bad it was wasted on such a vapid screenplay. And the sets are colorful. But that's about it! Watching this movie is about as exciting as watching a tennis match. Sure some people may find that exciting, but most people don't.
If I had to sum up this film, I would say it lack's heart. The writer's of the screenplay certainly went out of their way NOT to do, or say, absolutely anything to offend anyone! This is the ultimate perfect film for small children. It's so plain vanilla, parents will have nothing to worry about! Unfortunately, for the rest of us, it wasn't marketed as a children's only film!
I don't expect a Jules Verne story to make sense - it's a delightful fantasy. But the versions I remember as a child and teen had very convincing passion and a lot of imagination. Memo to Hollywood: When you make the next remake sometime in the next twenty years, dump the plain vanilla into the compost bin, and take walk on the wild side!
