When Sean announces that he is going the Mysterious Island, Hank jokingly says, "maybe you stop by the moon and grab me a slurpee." This foreshadows the next movie in the franchise: From the Earth to the Moon, which still hasn't come to fruition. See more »
The map coordinates show the latitude to be south of the equator, yet Hank points to a location north of the equator on the globe. Palau is also north of the equator. See more »

Not now, Sean. She's scared!
No, it's cold-blooded and it's attracted to heat.
[the lizard bites the flare]
Now there's only one thing left. The thunder cookie.
[clenching his fist at the giant lizard and punches it]
I think I just made it worse.
[the lizard growls at them]
Hope she doesn't like Polynesian food.

The 17-year-old Sean Anderson (Josh Hutcherson) receives a coded signal and his stepfather Hank (Dwayne Johnson) helps him to decipher the message. They find that Sean's grandfather Alexander Anderson (Michael Caine) has found the mysterious island in the Pacific described by Julio Verne and two other writers in their novels.
The stubborn Sean wants to travel to the coordinates and Hank decides to buy the tickets and travel with the teenager to a small island nearby the location. They rent an old helicopter owned by the locals Gabato (Luis Guzmán) and his teenage daughter Kailani (Vanessa Hudgens) and the group heads to the unknown spot. Along their journey, they cross a hurricane and crash in the island. They find a beautiful and dangerous place, surrounded by forests, volcanoes with lava of gold and menacing life forms. The meet also the old Alexander and Hank discovers that the island is sinking. Now their only chance to survive is to find the legendary Nautilus.
"Journey 2: The Mysterious Island" is a movie with a trailer that is better than the film itself. The lame screenplay begins in a fast pace, with Hank and Sean guessing to quickly the message. The story is very weak and the film is supported by the special effects only. The spoiled Sean and the rude Alexander are detestable characters and Gabato is stupid and annoying and never funny as supposed to be. Hank is multi- skilled in codes, hydraulic and electric engineering, medicine, and music and diving. In the end, "Journey 2: The Mysterious Island" is a very disappointing adventure. My vote is four.
Title (Brazil): "Viagem 2: A Ilha Misteriosa" ("Journey 2: The Mysterious Island")
