Sean Anderson partners with his mom's boyfriend on a mission to find his grandfather, who is thought to be missing on a mythical island.
We here at Cogerson Movie Score are required by our bylaws to watch any Michael Caine movie no matter how bad it looks. Well I watched Journey 2 by myself about a year ago....and thought it was pretty bad....earning about a 1.5 rating. Well I revisited this movie tonight....but this time I watched it in 3D and with my two little girls. Both factors made the viewing experience much better.
In Journey 2 Josh Hutcherson loses his dad but picks up a step dad(The Rock) and a granddad(Caine). This time the adventure happens on Jules Verne's Mysterious Island. Movie is pretty fast paced...but loaded with some pretty horrible dialogue. The 3D was a pleasant surprise...as it had depth and plenty…
Hungry Gamer: I hate you, stepdad The Rock. There's so much tension between us.
The Rock: I'm good with codes and maps and stuff.
Hungry Gamer: Great! Let's be buds.
On the island.
Michael Caine: Look, I'm on a giant bee. This mysterious place has loads of mysterious creatures like this. Mysterious.
The Rock: This mysterious island is mysteriously sinking. "It looks like the liquefaction has tripled overnight!" (actual dialogue)
Hungry Gamer: So, all these mysterious animals will drown?
The Rock: ... am... Check out my tits... they can dance. Quick, throw berries at them.
It's The Rock Concert 4!
I know the original was a box office hit despite being about the blandest film imaginable, so perhaps a sequel was inevitable.
But 4 years later and with none of the original cast except for Josh Hutcherson? Seemed like an odd move to me at the time, even with The Rock recruited for this outing. Yet, again, it was a box office hit and ends up being quite a bit more enjoyable than the original, but not perhaps because it's bigger on ideas and scale.
Again, it's short on actual thrills and monsters and plods in places way too much despite a once again thankfully short running time. Where this one proves to…
I had the misfortune of paying good money to see Brendan Fraser’s Journey to the Center of the Earth at the cinema so I can’t say that a sequel was high on my watchlist. This time around Fraser is nowhere to be seen (I’m not even sure his character was even referenced) and instead, The Rock, has tagged along for the ride. The casting switch is for the better with Dwayne Johnson providing a better action-comic foil for the brightly coloured CGI adventure. If the film’s subtitle didn’t give it away, the adventure takes place on Jules Verne’s Mysterious Island (with a bit of Swift and Stevenson thrown in for good measure), where Josh Hutcherson and his stepdad set out…
Michael Caine... what have you done? WHAT HAVE YOU DONE! *falls to my knees and sobs uncontrollably*
This film is as clumsy and awkward as the title itself. The pace is fast, while everything else seems to be all over the place. They went ahead and sacrificed logic, character building, personality, mood, and rhythm to achieve supersonic speed.
In other words, they did a Michael Bay.
Except, they didn't even get the explosions and visual effects right, instead, they ended up with something quite unfinished and fake looking. Almost like they forgot they had to make it look real, and just went Pixar style all over this shit.
I wish they would quit their money grind on Jules Verne, it's really rather depressing.
proof that i'll watch anything with the Rock in it. He's wearing his nipples a little low in this passable kids adventure though.
Gewone film. Niets speciaal.
The sequel to 2008’s Journey to the Center of the Earth didn’t try anything different. Journey 2: The Mysterious Island will create imagery that’s too unrealistic with CGI that will take you out and will probably be a bit too scary for young children and other things to make it unbelievable for anybody else. It’s fun enough for kids and fans of Dwayne Johnson will at least some sort of joy to this. If you like Sci-Fi fantasy movies like Jurassic Park, this isn’t that kind of movie.
It's like a Saturday afternoon matinee. Cheesy but still enjoyable.
The Rock's nipples are visible through his shirt the whole time. So this gets three stars for that alone.
I forgot this movie existed.
Not bad for a family movie starring The Rock.
Some fun weirdness in this movie, but not quite the good-bad treasure I was hoping it would be. Though if this had just been the Pec-Pop of Love sequence on a loop for 90 minutes, then it would have been movie of the year.
P.S. Puppy-sized elephants!
What I got to say about "Journey 2: The Mysterious Island" is great action adventure movies.
the never ending NYC movie list.
