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

It lost me at the bees. 'Journey 2: The Mysterious Island' is kinda/sorta based on the writings of Jules Verne, in a similar vein as its predecessor, 'Journey to the Center of the Earth.'

Journey 2: The Mysterious Island is as clumsy and clunky as its title.
February 21, 2012
With only occasionally awesome CGI, it's destined to thrive when it comes out on DVD.

... everybody seems to be having fun ...

It's only mediocre, and there are many reasons why it could have been far worse than that.

A good cast and an enjoyable adventure equals solid family viewing.

A lack of inspiration permeates every foot of Journey 2: The Mysterious Island's frame.
February 12, 2012
There's very little Verne left in this adaptation, and the nebulous way they connect him to Jonathan Swift and Robert Louis Stevenson is tenuous to say the least.

'I used to serve in the Navy,' Rock explained, by which he meant the Village People song of the same name.

Family values trump suspense, fun, and, of course, mystery.

A big ol' shrug of the shoulders, that's what it gets from me.

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

Everything is juvenile (deliberately) and predictable (undeliberately).

The island is disintegrating. You know no one is in any real danger. The only possible harm coming from this one is the potential of it turning your brain to mush.
February 10, 2012
Any sign of cutting-edge 3D effects are gone in this sequel. Now we just have Dwayne Johnson pec popping, and squabbling with Michael Caine in this forgettable adventure.
February 10, 2012
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.
February 10, 2012
As a would-be adaptation of the novel, it's pure nonsense.
February 10, 2012
I would love to support a "dumbed down" version of classic fiction that might get young viewers doing something that seems increasingly uncommon - cracking a book. But does it have to be this far down? And this dumb?
February 10, 2012
Colorful, undemanding, PG-rated boys'-and-girls' adventure.
