Let’s Review: JOURNEY 2 in 3D

If you saw Journey to the Center of the Earth, you’re probably wondering why on earth they’ve made another one.  But, this one is much better than its predecessor from 2008. Really!

In this sequel, actor Josh Hutcherson looks all grown up compared to a couple of years ago. I suddenly cannot wait to see him as Peeta Mellark in the upcoming and much-anticipated HUNGER GAMES, coming on March 23…

The movie is similar to the first, as they try to find a place written about by Jules Verne.

But, the CGI and digital effects are much improved, as well as the dialogue. There are quite a few funny moments as well as intense action sequences.

After the Game Plan, the Tooth Fairy, and The Race to Witch Mountain, and now Journey 2 (did I miss any?) The Rock, I mean Dwayne Johnson, has pretty much secured his niche as a kids movie actor. Here he is Hank, married to Kristin Davis, and Sean’s stepdad. He is pretty good, though. He is very funny, great facial expressions, and surprisingly, a very nice singing voice.

Michael Caine revives his role as the adventure-havin’ scientific explorin’ grandpa, Alexander Anderson.

Vanessa Hudgens plays the love interest for Sean and is daughter to Gabato, Luis Guzmán, the helicopter pilot who takes them to the Island. He is his usual stupid, immature and whiny character.

The kids are going to love it, but I wouldn’t bring ones smaller than 5, because they might not appreciate the 3D thrill ride as much as the 6-and up crowd.

The movie has a beautiful soundtrack to go along with the fantastical beasts and gorgeous scenery on The Mysterious Island.

JOURNEY 2: THE MYSTERIOUS ISLAND is in theatres and IMAX Feb. 10, 2012.

It is rated PG and is 1 hour and 34 minutes long.

So what do I think?

Take the kids and go see it. It’s funny and exciting. You’ll all have fun!

What do you think?

Do you agree or not? Comment after you see it!
