Jonathan Kim: ReThink Review: Journey 2: The Mysterious Island -- Welcome to the Rock

Journey 2: The Mysterious Island easily beat box office predictions, making $27.6 million over the weekend and coming in third after unexpectedly strong performers The Vow and Safe House. A very loose interpretation of Jules Verne's 1864 novel The Mysterious Island, Journey 2 is a sequel to 2008'S Journey to the Center of the Earth, the first 3D digital live action film and a not-as-loose adaptation of Verne's 1864 novel of the same name. Journey 1 made over $240 million worldwide, making a 3D sequel inevitable. So instead of a 13-year-old Sean (Josh Hutcherson) being accompanied by a beefy volcanologist (Brendan Fraser) who takes Sean deep inside a volcano to help him find evidence of his long-lost father, we now have an older Sean (still Hutcherson) being accompanied by his much, much beefier stepfather (Dwayne Johnson, aka World Wrestling Entertainment's the Rock) to an uncharted island off the coast of Palau with hopes of finding Sean's long-lost grandfather (Michael Caine). Watch the trailer for Journey 2: The Mysterious Island below.
