I reviewed Journey 2: The Mysterious Island for my syndication partners this week. It’s not a bad family adventure movie. It’s not the best, but definitely not the worst. Something in between, with lots of colorful landscapes, giant lizards and a cool treehouse with a working elevator and lightning-bug lamps. A cast that includes Josh Hutcherson, Vanessa Hudgens and Michael Caine doesn’t hurt. I gave it 3.5 out of 5 Reels.
But perhaps the best thing about this movie is that I learned Dwayne Johnson has a really nice voice. The former pro wrestler sang What a Wonderful World, accompanying himself on the ukulele. Well, he customized the lyrics a little. See what you think below.
I like Dwayne Johnson in family movies, and thought [amazon_link id="B003CWEQFS" target="_blank" container="" container_class="" ]Tooth Fairy[/amazon_link] and [amazon_link id="B002935GNC" target="_blank" container="" container_class="" ]Race to Witch Mountain[/amazon_link] were both very cute.
