Journey 2: The Mysterious Island review

A boy's journey to a mythical land to find his missing grandfather

The island isn't nearly as mysterious as Brendan Fraser’s no-show in this Journey To The Center Of The Earth sequel, which instead makes Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson guardian to teen Josh Hutcherson as they seek out the factual basis to another of Jules Verne’s fanciful fictions.

Tiny elephants, a giant lizard and an explodey volcano are a few of the things they find in a 3D adventure that also sees outsized bees used as taxis and Vanessa Hudgens tagging along for the ride.

Enjoyable enough as eye-poking spectacle.
