Ever since his adventure in the center of the Earth, Sean Anderson has been looking for other places mentioned by Verne and other Vernians. He is notified about a coded message, and breaks into a satellite facility to fully receive it. With the help from his stepfather Hank (Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson) he decodes the message leading him to find the map that leads him to Verne's mysterious island. Along with Gabato and Kailani, Sean embarks on a mission to find his grandfather, the legendary Vernian Alexander. But unexpected problems arise as Alexander made a mistake that could change everything.Written by

(at around 25 mins) When they find the giant lizard eggs, Hank (Dwayne Johnson) quips "It had to be a lizard. Why couldn't it have been snakes?" This is a take on the famous Indiana Jones line from Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981), in which Indiana falls into a pit of snakes and says "Snakes. Why'd it have to be snakes?"

When Sean (Josh Hutcherson) enters the Nautilus (@ 1:11), he opens the valve to let the trapped water flow out. The pressure meter has readings in Hindi (Devanagari script), that read (from top to bottom) - Tees (Thirty), Chaalees (Forty) and Bees (Twenty). The sequence of markings seem out of order, since a regular pressure meter ought to have readings marked Twenty, Thirty and Forty in that order.
Moreover, a few seconds later, once the water starts gushing out through an outlet in the floor, the pressure meter's markings read (from top to bottom) - Bees (Twenty), Tees (Thirty) and Dus (Ten), being once again out of order. See more »
In the 19th century Jules Verne wrote some of the greatest adventure stories ever told. Novels such as "Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea", "Journey to the Center of the Earth" and "The Mysterious Island." Most consider these works of science fiction. Vernians know otherwise.

After seeing the trailers, I looked forward to this movie. But although I am a fan of Dwayne Johnson, I cannot recommend this movie to much of anyone. It moves too quickly at the beginning. The premise is interesting but completely implausible, especially the time frame. Some of the scenery is enjoyable but fleeting. Michael Caine's character is entirely too negative. The special effects were not very realistic either. The plot was designed to be a dramatic thriller but it was so pat it was boring. I almost left before the ending as there was no mystery left shortly into the film. Also, the two young people were rather lackluster and the pilot was annoying. For something that held so much promise of a lovely adventure, it was a big disappointment.
