A screenplay that never quite clicks on all cylinders. There are too many scenes dealing with relationships that really halt any momentum.
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?

Visually rich with lavish sets and fun movie monsters, but Journey 2 is about as underdeveloped and hollow as assembly-line filmmaking can get.

...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.'

Amusingly childish...

Feeding this to a young mind should count as a chargable offense.

Utterly disposable and -- apart from Dwayne Johnson's 'pec pop of love' -- almost immediately forgettable.
February 25, 2012
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.'
February 24, 2012
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.
February 18, 2012
It's only mediocre, and there are many reasons why it could have been far worse than that.
February 13, 2012
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.
February 11, 2012
A big ol' shrug of the shoulders, that's what it gets from me.
February 11, 2012
Family values trump suspense, fun, and, of course, mystery.
February 10, 2012
Everything is juvenile (deliberately) and predictable (undeliberately).
