3 / 10

Dwayne Johnson
Michael Caine
Josh Hutcherson
Vanessa Hudgens
Kristin Davis

Directed by: Brad Peyton

Distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures

Loud, Clumsy and meant to be seen on 3D. The effects and events were all so chessy, the dialogue so lame and the landscapes too colorful.

Dwayne Johnson "The Rock", has in the past two years been in some really funny movies, he was in tooth fairy, why he decided to do that movie, don't know.

Then there was Fast Five, i am not much of a fan of a fast and furious fan, but he did well...then he decided to sink lower than the tooth fairy joke to pull this, Journey 2.

Journey 2 is sequel to Journey to the center of the earth, which Brendan Fraser, played the lead role, but due to schedule issues couldnt return to take his lead role.

Studios need to get another hobby, other than the one they all seem to have, which is, "hey! the part one cost 60 mill, and made over 240 mill in box office alone, lets do a part two."

Directed by Canadian director Brad Peyton who also worked as director in the movie "Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore", pulled the amazing dull stunts in this movie that will go over the head of any adult viewer, as most of the events were just plain bogus and dull.

Here in their version of “Alice in wonderland” The elephants are the size of cats, and bees are so big you can ride on them, and don’t get me started on the lizards.

The movie's comic relief guy (Luiz Guzman), looked and acted like something out of a Disney home video.

We also have Sean's love interest Kailani played by Vanessa Hudgens, who seemed more out of the movie than in it.

The story had Josh Hutcherson return from the first movie playing Sean, and with him we have his mother’s lover Hank played by The Rock, who helped Sean decipher a code, which had the locations of…

I will let you guess?

If you guessed Mysterious Island, you are right.

Sean believes his grandfather is trapped on the island and needs help.

He and The Rock head off to mysterious island, and all I kept thinking was…WHY?

The rock said it was for bonding, Sean said it was to find grandpa, both reasons may fly in 1992, but here in 2012. that is not a good enough reason to make a movie that cost 79 million to make.

I guess my main problem of the movie is the cast, it was like they were acting another movie, this not Michael Caine’s best, I still found it hard to believe that the old Michael Caine could have survived in that Island alone for that long, (but hey it is a movie).
