The success of the 2008 remake of "Journey to the Center of the Earth" yielded this sequel, which fans of another Jules Verne story - "The Mysterious Island" - will recognize many elements from.
Young Sean (returnee Josh Hutcherson) is joined by his stepfather (Dwayne Johnson) in seeking his long-missing grandfather (Michael Caine), leading them to an island populated by bizarre creatures perfectly suited to 3-D ... in which the movie originally was shown. Vanessa Hudgens also appears in the tale, which incorporates aspects of "Treasure Island" and "Gulliver's Travels" as well. *** (PG: AS, P) (Also on Blu-ray and Movies on Demand)
