      After “Journey to the Center of the Earth” I now had some time to watch the new adventure inspired by the timeless fantasy novels of Jules Verne. This time the trip is to the Mysterious island and from the adventurers that were in the first film returns only one. This is Sean (played by the young talent Josh Hutcherson), who from a reclusive child has become a troubled and rebellious teenager who crosses the streets at night with a dirt bike and refuses to accept the friendship of his stepfather, Hank (played brilliantly by Dwayne Johnson, better known to the wrestling fans as The Rock). Fortunately for Sean, Hank is a really nice guy and takes to heart the concerns of the young guy, and decides to help him in an another crazy adventure - to find the Mysterious Island, where, according to the boy hides his grandfather Alexander (played by Michael Caine - if you have

      forgotten who he is, this is Alfred from “The Dark Knight” and “Batman Begins”).

      And so the stepfather and his son cross half the world to find another special couple - the likeable crook Gabbato (Luis Guzman) and his beautiful daughter Kaylani (Vanessa Hudgens) who offer them transportation to the place where should be located the island with their decrepit helicopter. And so the small group flies to the place only to find themselves in the middle of a fierce storm that sends them straight to the island. And there they are awaited by miracles - elephants with a size roughly of a spaniel, giant bees, birds and lizards and, of course, the eccentric grandfather Alexander. The four adventurers quickly become five, as the grandfather is determined to show the newcomers around the island, to show them the lost city of Atlantis , and only then to summon the assistance on the radio - as it turns out this can not be done sooner because of the odd tours of the only satellite that can capture the signal from the Island.

      Hank, who, however, also has some experience in adventures calculates that the island will soon sink beneath the waves, and after a few days the unfortunate guests will find themselves in 20,000 leagues under the sea. The only chance of the group is the legendary Captain Nemo’s submarine, which also should be somewhere on the island. The road to it, however, is filled with deadly obstacles, and time is inexorably ticking…

      I think that “Journey 2: The Mysterious Island” is a film from a relatively rare breed, namely a sequel that is better than the original. I personally watched them almost one after the other and I can say that the second part has everything that “Journey to the Center of the Earth” boasted with, but with even more of it. Firstly, the film ...

      is a feast for the eye, with amazingly beautiful effects reminiscent of the stunning vision of “Avatar.” The 3D like never has been done so much better and I think that it is worth the extra money. The beings themselves are not only well made but also original - the big become small, the small ones are large and one of the peak moments in the film is a deadly flying contest in which the characters are riding bees and behind them fly hungry giant, spreading claws, wings and beaks… birds. No less cool is the giant lizard that make the Tyrannosaurus of the first part look like a joke or the fearsome electric eel, which was something like a kind of guard of the famous submarine of the captain.

      Besides the effects , however , the film relies on a great sense of humor. The authors of “Journey 2: The Mysterious Island” were aware that although they

      have effects like “Avatar” they can not boast with a scientifical world and an epic story , so they bet on the viewer constantly smiling while watching the story. I think that for this helps the funny dialogue, the colorful characters ( Hank, the grandfather and the short Gabbana are very funny) and are played by great actors.

      Therefore , besides humor , action and effects , the film has its , maybe a little , but strong touching moments , talking about the responsibility that has to balance even the most daring impulses on the one hand , but also for the spirit of adventure which should diversify our lives on the other. I feel that all of this is served unobtrusively between jokes and chases with various large small creatures and eventually after the film ended I was full of good emotions, which I think is very important in our full of issues and greyness daily life.

I absolutely love this film. One of my favorites, it takes your breath away throughout its entirety. The knowledge which is given in that is fully true. “Joules Verne, Imagine that you can pick an elephant with a single hand and A bee can give you a wonderful ride full of Adventure and Fun, Not forgetting Dwayne s character is quite some motivation to stepfathers to love their stepchildren. I recommend this for the whole family.
