Synopsis: In this follow-up to the 2008 worldwide hit Journey to the Center of the Earth, the new 3D family adventure Journey 2: The Mysterious Island begins when young Sean Anderson (Josh Hutcherson, reprising his role from the first film) receives a coded distress signal from a mysterious island where no island should exist. It's a place of strange life forms, mountains of gold, deadly volcanoes, and more than one astonishing secret. Unable to stop him from going, Sean's new stepfather, Hank (Dwayne Johnson), joins the quest. Together with a helicopter pilot (Luis Guzman) and his beautiful, strong-willed daughter (Vanessa Hudgens), they set out to find the island, rescue its lone inhabitant and escape before seismic shockwaves force the island under the sea and bury its treasures forever. -- (C) Official Site

Critic Reviews

  • Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune
    Surely the silliest outing for Caine since he swatted rampaging killer bees in the 1978 disaster flick "The Swarm."
  • Rafer Guzman, Newsday
    Offers giant rocks clearly made of Styrofoam and Dwayne Johnson, who fits the same description.
  • Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
    I swear some of the giant, Day-Glo vegetation had "Property of 'Lost in Space'" stamped on it.
  • Alonso Duralde, TheWrap
    The equivalent of those pre-made sandwiches you buy at Starbucks -- not bad for you, and not entirely lacking in flavor, but nothing particularly memorable, either.
  • Tom Long, Detroit News
    The equivalent of throwing "Jurassic Park," "Avatar" and the absolute worst episode ever of "Land of the Lost" in a blender and pushing "garble."
  • Stephen Cole, Globe and Mail
    The Mysterious Island is everything a 12-year-old boy could want - endless adventure involving a reckless adolescent hero, with a pretty girl in a clinging T-shirt around to watch him struggle.
  • Lou Lumenick, New York Post
    You know we're in serious trouble when even old pros such as Michael Caine and Luis Guzman can't do anything with the uninspired and unfunny script.
  • John DeFore, Washington Post
    Sincerely tries to pay homage to the likes of Jules Verne and Robert Louis Stevenson but is too contaminated by today's tame sensibilities to make it fly.
  • Bruce Demara, Toronto Star
    A wretched shipwreck of a film that will appeal only to young minds of the most limited discernment and imagination.
  • Connie Ogle, Miami Herald
    Journey 2: The Mysterious Island makes a nice case to your kids that reading books is a good idea.
