Movie Review: Journey 2

In this follow-up to the 2008 worldwide hit Journey to the Center of the Earth, the new 3D family adventure Journey 2: The Mysterious Island begins when 17-year-old Sean Anderson (Josh Hutcherson receives a coded distress signal from a mysterious island where no island should exist. It's a place of strange life forms, mountains of gold, deadly volcanoes, and more than one astonishing secret. Unable to stop him from going, Sean's new stepfather, Hank (Dwayne Johnson), joins the quest. Together with a helicopter pilot (Luis Guzman) and his beautiful, strong-willed daughter (Vanessa Hudgens), they set out to find the island, rescue its lone inhabitant and escape before seismic shockwaves force the island under the sea and bury its treasures forever.

This is one of the movies, i was most excited for this year. I love that kind of adventures and i watch almost all The Rock's movies. Of course, the first one had Brendan Fraser in, so this one can't top it with The Rock but i was sure it will be good for some reason.

First, i want to say i watched in 3D (i decided to give the money, since the 1st one was one of the good 3D movies i've seen). And it was good. Probably one of the best out there. It had some moments, that made you go back your chair and the quality was super wow. The special effects were simply amazing and gorgeous. The island is one of the most beautiful things i have ever seen and only for that the movie needs to be seen in 3D or at least Blu-Ray.

Now on the story, don't expect anything tremendous. It's a usual movie for kids, with some silly jokes (still laughing), The Rock in a non-violent role, Hutcherson for the girlies, and Hudgens for the boys. Funny, romance, family matters, adventure, action are all in. For me, was a really good movie. I did not expect anything less, or anything more. The idea with the mysterious island and how you can find it, Atlantis, Nemo, the volcano was clever and actually made sense.

All the kids would love it. Especially in 3D they will go wow. So if you are parent, i say go watch it. It is one of the decent movies for kids. Now, if you are an adult like me who has a thing for that kind of movies with exploring and adventuring, then you should watch it too. There aren't many movies like it, coming out lately and it's a shame, so take the chance and enjoy this one.

Expect a 3rd movie around 2014!


  1. Glad to hear you enjoyed it. While it seemed like something I would be interested in for the fun (Okay, and maybe JHutch...), I wasn't sure if I would be willing to pay the $7 for a theater ticket. It might be too cheesy, and I didn't want to waste my money. You've convinced me now! :)

  2. It sounds good....Thnx for the review....


There is lot of spam lately at the posts, so for a while i will put up the comment moderation. Sorry for that, i really don't like it but i thought it might stop the spamming. It will be down soon enough! Thanks a lot :)
