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…
oh my god this was so good ,,, So Good ,,, I don't think I even have enough adjectives to describe JUST HOW GOOD this is I can't even do my usual Spicy List Of Unbelievably Dumb Shit That Happened In This Movie like ,,, I got nothing. I can't describe how it made me feel because if I do I will break every language known to man. god it's so good you guys. I am physically and mentally exhausted from just trying to cope with an influx of sheer elation. I hope dwayne the rock johnson knows that he's the universe's absolute best creation of all time
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.
writing so bad
More of the same. I still enjoyed the first one more though because of its freshness. An above average adventure movie, mainly will be enjoyable for kids.
Got to love the rock
not one for the top 100 list that being the most understated sentence ever but needed to start somewhere luckily it is quick moving with no use for realism or background a mishmash of popular classic fantasy stories but all this can be excused due to target audience and entertainment purposes but the horrific dialogue is inexcusable and lazy some all time bad nominees like the Rock's beauty calling his punch a thunder cookie and then talking about liquefaction after smelling the water with a straight face and how could I leave out the cringe inducing pec pops of love and countless other earsplitting one liners and quasi scientific hogwash I will admit to enjoying Luis Guzman's comedic role that…
Better than the first one.
arrgh, aweful watching experience, never ever should this tied to Jules Verne
So bad. And for one reason: bees. Giant-ass bees. Also, while I love Dwayne the Rock Johnson, his presence was not meant for this movie
How is Michael Caine the least likable person in any movie? This is another one perfect for Bad Movie Nights.
A disappointing sequel to a potentially great franchise.
