Journey 2: The Mysterious Island Movie Review

Journey 2: The Mysterious Island Movie Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Feb 12, 2012
( Rating: 5 Star Rating)

Josh Hutcherson and Dwayne Johnson embark on the adventure of a lifetime in Journey 2: The Mysterious Island. Kidzworld has the movie review.

The Island Exists

Sean (Josh Hutcherson) receives a cryptic message from his grandfather telling him that the mythical island written about in three classic novels is real. Sean wastes no time pursuing this lead, but his stepfather, Hank (Dwayne Johnson) won’t let him go it alone. Together, they fly halfway around the world and charter a rickety helicopter crewed by Gabato (Luis Guzman) and his beautiful daughter Kailani (Vanessa Hudgens).

Crash Landing

When their helicopter capsizes in the stormy seas, the four of them wash up on the very island they were searching for. On it, they encounter creatures of unusual proportions, including giant bees and lizards, and dog-sized elephants. And they also find Sean’s grandfather, Alexander (Michael Caine), who’s built his own tree house.

The Sinking Island

Thanks to his military training, Hank notices signs that the island is quickly sinking beneath the ocean. In order to survive, they must locate the rumoured submarine called the Nautilus and use it to escape the island. But time is running low. In spite of their differences, Hank and Sean must work together if they want to save themselves and the others.

The Bottom Line

As sequels go, Journey 2: The Mysterious Island is definitely a good one. It is jam-packed with magical sights, death-defying adventure and laugh-out-loud moments. And best of all, it looks like there’s going to be a third movie! We definitely recommend seeing Journey 2 in 3D!

“Instruction in world history in the so-called high schools is even today in a very sorry condition. Few teachers understand that the study of history can never be to learn historical dates and events by heart and recite them by rote; that what matters is not whether the child knows exactly when this battle or that was fought, when a general was born, or even when a monarch (usually a very insignificant one) came into the crown of his forefathers. No, by the living God, this is very unimportant. To 'learn' history means to seek and find the forces which are the causes leading to those effects which we subsequently perceive as historical events.”

'Men and women must have their adrenals stimulated from time to time.'What?' questioned the Savage, uncomprehending.It's one of the conditions of perfect health. That's why we've made the V.P.S. treatments compulsory.'V.P.S.?'Violent Passion Surrogate. Regularly once a month. We flood the whole system with adrenin. It's the complete physiological equivalent of fear and rage. All the tonic effects of murdering Desdemona and being murdered by Othello, without any of the inconvenience.'But I like the inconveniences.'We don't,' said the Controller. 'We prefer to do things comfortably.'But I don't want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness. I want sin.'In fact,' said Mustapha Mond, 'you're claiming the right to be unhappy. Not to mention the right to grow old and ugly and impotent; the right to have ######## and cancer, the right to have too little to eat; the right to be lousy; the right to live in constant apprehension of what may happen tomorrow; the right to catch typhoid; the right to be tortured by unspeakable pains of every kind.' There was a long silence.I claim them all,' said the Savage at last.Mustapha Mond shrugged his shoulders. 'You're welcome,' he said.”  I freaking LOVE Brave New World! It's one of the best books I've ever read, and that conversation between the Controller and John is my favorite part  [s:sm3/1jw1]
