Cinema Crazed

It definitely has its appeal to the crowd it's pandering toward, and it's a success in its mission to bring the awe and thrills.

Aisle Seat

The whole movie has such an air of giddy adventure that I had a good time with it. Journey 2: The Mysterious Island is charming, in spite of its imperfections.

Falls far short of cinematic art but goes down pretty well with a box of popcorn and modest expectations.

It's all a bit silly. But Journey 2 does have the uncomplicated charm of those ancient mid-budget epics in which Doug McClure narrowly avoided being eaten by Pterodactyls.

Silly, colorful, harmless and fun.

Leonard Maltin

The visual effects are as artificial as the genially preposterous story, but the movie is all in fun, and painless for grownups.

Reminded me of the old Saturday morning live-action television shows of my youth, like The Land of the Lost and Danger Island.

Leonard Maltin's Picks

Younger children may find some of the action a bit scary, but the filmmakers have tried to keep this element under control-brief and just intense enough to get a rise out of their audience but never gory.

Colorful, undemanding, PG-rated boys'-and-girls' adventure.

Burdened with a leaden script built only with cliché, the sequel manages to pack a harder punch of adventure than its predecessor, making better use of its 3D environments

At its heart, 'Journey 2: The Mysterious Island' aims for fun, old-fashioned thrills and delivers for the most part. It's a fun ride.(Parental Review also available)

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.

Journey 2: The Mysterious Island is an anything-goes funhouse disguised as an adventure movie. That's not a bad thing at all.

Grown-ups and reviewers aren't supposed to like movies that are almost entirely CG and PG-rated eye candy, but screw it. The inner child wins out on this one.

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.

Hey, it moves right along. It rockets on a certain goofy bliss. Never mind the filmmakers have clearly never read the original Verne/Stevenson/Swift books beyond cover blurbs

A well-paced and highly entertaining family film made with good humor, panache, and imagination.

...a delightful entertainment for children and adults alike with the best 3D I've seen since the first of the series in 2008.
