Four years after journeying with his uncle to the center of the earth, Sean Anderson (Josh Hutcherson -- reprising his role) receives a coded distress signal from a place even more incredible and remote: an uncharted island where no island should exist, teeming with strange life forms, mountains of gold, deadly volcanoes and hiding more than one astonishing secret. Despite the protests of his mother (Kristin Davis) and new stepfather (Dwayne Johnson), Sean, now 17, is determined to reach this mysterious island and rescue its lone inhabitant, his long-lost grandfather (Michael Caine), before seismic shockwaves force the island under the sea and bury its treasures forever. With Luis Guzman and Vanessa Hudgens as a father daughter helicopter tour team, a new journey begins in this follow-up to the groundbreaking 3D CGI spectacular that travels in dimensions that can only be seen to be believed!
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Aggressively unambitious, Journey 2 might thrill tween viewers, but most others will find it too intense for young audiences and too cartoonishly dull for adults.
Offers giant rocks clearly made of Styrofoam and Dwayne Johnson, who fits the same description.

What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Journey 2: The Mysterious Island is the sequel to 2008's entertaining Journey to the Center of the Earth. The Hunger Games' Josh Hutcherson is the sole returning cast member, but the tone is very similar to the original. Overall, it's a family-friendly adventure -- albeit one with frequent tense chases, monster attacks, and a somewhat scary helicopter crash (some of which is a bit more intense in the movie's 3-D version). There's also flirting and a kiss between the two main teen characters, and co-star Vanessa Hudgens is often shown wearing a tight, cleavage-enhancing tank top. Expect some gross-out humor, as well as potty talk and very sporadic mild language ("ass," "hell," etc.). This is no cinematic classic, but it is bright and cheerful and has positive characters, including fatherly role models.
