Storyline

Ever since his adventure in the center of the Earth, Sean Anderson has been looking for other places mentioned by Verne and other Vernians. He is notified about a coded message, and breaks into a satellite facility to fully receive it. With the help from his stepfather Hank (Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson) he decodes the message leading him to find the map that leads him to Verne's mysterious island. Along with Gabato and Kailani, Sean embarks on a mission to find his grandfather, the legendary Vernian Alexander. But unexpected problems arise as Alexander made a mistake that could change everything. Written by Anonymous User - Earth

Trivia

There is another Jules Verne novel titled "The Golden Volcano", which, although is set in the Canadian Arctic during the gold rush, spews gold nuggets when it erupts. This is likely where the mountains of gold came from for this movie. See more »

Goofs

(at around 1h 25 mins) At the very end of the movie as it zooms out from the Earth to the Moon, along the way we see airplanes and satellites, and just before the Moon we apparently pass through some sort of asteroid belt. There is no asteroid belt between the Earth and the Moon. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Alexander: [off-screen] In the 19th century Jules Verne wrote some of the greatest adventure stories ever told. Novels such as "Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea", "Journey to the Center of the Earth" and "The Mysterious Island." Most consider these works of science fiction. Vernians know otherwise.

Not A Journey You Should Go On
31 October 2012 | by sehook-517-570915See all my reviews

The previews for Journey 2: The Mysterious Island made it look better than it actually was. The movie was only slightly better than I was expecting. The premise for Journey 2 was good. I enjoyed the idea, but the movie was taken to a really cheesy level.

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Josh Hutcherson were truly the best part of this flick. They had good chemistry, and their characters and acting were decent. Yes, they brought some cheese, but very little in comparison to other characters. Vanessa Hudgens was OK. She really didn't bring much to the table neither through the character or her acting. Luis Guzman's character was AWFUL. He apparently was suppose to be the comic relief, but there was nothing funny about him or his jokes. His character actually brought the movie down in terms of its likability.

I also found this movie to be somewhat flawed in its creation. For instance, the jelly fish should have been large, but instead were regular size. I realize this is a kids & family movie and wasn't created for extreme accuracy, or Oscar wins. I, however, still enjoy consistency in my movies.

Journey 2: The Mysterious Island wasn't all that original, and EXTREMELY predictable. I pretty much knew everything that was going to happen before it happened. Some aspects of this movie felt like they were straight out of "Honey I Shrunk the Kids".

All-in-all, this movie was just alright. For a kid, it might have been much more enjoyable. For an adult, it was just too flawed, corny, and cheesy to amount to much.
