Fresh: That dinosaur looks like it's popping off the screen! Cool!
- Adam Graham, Detroit News, Friday, July 11, 2008
Fresh: Most of the movie, directed by Eric Brevig, is as daft, outlandish, and speedy as it needs to be, and, for all its newfangled effects, touchingly old-fashioned in its reverence for the Jules Verne novel that inspired it.
- Anthony Lane, New Yorker, Monday, July 21, 2008
Rotten: Journey relentlessly dishes out the action and offers the bespectacled audience plenty of goopy, grabby 3-D jolts, but it all resembles a run of the mill video game. Brevig can't shake the material loose from its unbridled artificiality."

Surprisingly light and easy to watch. completely fantastic fare with decent effects, something kids will enjoy and ooooh and awwwe over.

Horrible casting with an equally proportioned horrible directing. Nice visuals, but over-all could have been better.
