...entertaining yet chintzy...
April 13, 2019
A screenplay that never quite clicks on all cylinders. There are too many scenes dealing with relationships that really halt any momentum.

Journey 2 is simply magical.
December 13, 2018
Undeniably an exhilarating family friendly, action adventure that'll no doubt thrill younger audiences.
September 6, 2017
Like its predecessor, Journey 2: The Mysterious Island is a race against time to survive, but the inclusion of new characters adds a little more interest.
May 9, 2016
For a family, this is an agreeable Saturday outing, largely because director Brad Peyton doesn't set his sight higher than the material actually is.
September 17, 2012
"Journey 2: The Mysterious Island" is light, airy family entertainment that actually ends up being too light and airy.
September 4, 2012
It's a harmless, lighthearted film with wooden acting, a nice message about accepting your parents-whoever they are-and again, lots of ridiculous CGI.

The only defense for this movie is to say that it's not actually 'trying' to be good ... Are we supposed to applaud just because they set the bar low and barely reached it?

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.

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.
May 25, 2012
Visually rich with lavish sets and fun movie monsters, but Journey 2 is about as underdeveloped and hollow as assembly-line filmmaking can get.
May 22, 2012
...a family adventure aimed squarely at children. For kids, it's fine; they'll probably enjoy all the color, action, and preposterous goings-on.

Panders to the kiddies, caters to the teens, and tosses in a loser-ethnic-sidekick. The shrugging tone of this 21st-century sabotage of the original novel is summed up by this slogan masquerading as dialogue: 'It's Jules Verne, man-ya gotta believe.'

Falls far short of cinematic art but goes down pretty well with a box of popcorn and modest expectations.
March 23, 2012
Amusingly childish...
March 20, 2012
Feeding this to a young mind should count as a chargable offense.
March 19, 2012
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.
March 7, 2012
Utterly disposable and -- apart from Dwayne Johnson's 'pec pop of love' -- almost immediately forgettable.
