Journey 2: The Mysterious Island | Film review
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson gets lost in Atlantis.
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson walks off with this sequel to 2008’s Journey to the Center of the Earth. He’s crazy buff, smart, funny and even sings a sweet rendition of “What a Wonderful World” while playing a ukulele. This mediocre 3-D fantasy-adventure offers a few other quirky surprises (Michael Caine riding bareback on a giant bee?). But the story—which sends Johnson’s character and his amateur-explorer stepson (Josh Hutcherson) on a search for the boy’s long-lost adventurer grandfather (Caine), landing them in what turns out to be Atlantis—is an eye-roller, with a frenetic pace and lack of wit. Those very qualities may endear it to a young audience.
