When brothers Richard and Bryan and young nanny Crystina fall into a hole while exploring one of Hawaii's many volcanic caves, they plummet all the way to the center of the Earth in this adventure loosely based on Jules Verne's classic novel. The teen-oriented film follows the trio's discovery of the lost continent of Atlantis, an underground world populated by creatures and monsters.
