Journey 2 The Mysterious Island (2012)

Following on from Journey to the Centre of the Earth Sean (Josh Hutcherson) returns for a new adventure. This time his step father Hank (Dwayne Johnson) help Sean locate his grandfather Alexander (Michael Caine) who is on Jules Verne’s Mysterious Island just of the coast of Palau. They recruit Gabato (Luis Guzman) and his beautiful daughter Kailani (Vanessa Hudgens) to get them to the island. What follows is an adventure of a lifetime.


AS sequels go this slightly better than its predecessor. Dwayne Johnson adds more than what Brendan Fraser gave to the first one and having a more realistic love interest for Sean is good addition. I would say it would be aimed to more family audience giving most of the peril is very short and never really edge of your set level a more adult film could obtain. Luis Guzman adds a lot of comic relief with silly one liners that are both random and funny. But overall if you want a nice simple action adventure this is a good one to watch.


My overall rating would 75%
