In which Dwayne flexes sumptuously
Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, the sequel to Journey to the Center of the Earth, has 3D, bathroom humor and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. But what’s so wrong with The Rock? He’s a pretty likable guy, and the scene where he uses his dancing pecs to bounce berries off the screen is one of the most entertaining in the movie. While absurd and a little bit stupid, it’d be unreasonable to expect anything else. The storyline is shallow but leaves room for a frantic speed tour of Jules Verne’s mysterious island, which delivers predictable but satisfying thrills while shamelessly capitalizing on 3D effects. Journey 2 isn’t a great movie, but its artificial world is beautiful and engaging. Kids will love it, and if you choose to see it, you can always say you’re going for Sir Michael Caine.
