Journey 2 the mysterious island is in fact Journey to the Center of the Earth part 2! Except this time the lead character does not go to Brendan Fraser but to Dwayne Johnson!
Official Synopsis: The new 3D family adventure “Journey 2: The Mysterious Island” begins when seventeen-year-old Sean Anderson (Josh Hutcherson) receives a coded distress signal from a mysterious island where no island should exist. Unable to stop him from tracking the signal to its source, Sean’s new stepfather, Hank (Dwayne Johnson), joins the quest that will take them first to the South Pacific, and then to a place few people have ever seen. Or lived to tell about.It’s a place of stunning beauty, strange and threatening life forms, volcanoes, mountains of gold and more than one astonishing secret; Together with Gabato, the only helicopter pilot willing to risk the trip, and Gabato’s beautiful, strong-willed daughter Kailani (Vanessa Hudgens), they set out to find the island, rescue its lone human inhabitant and escape before seismic shockwaves force the island underwater and bury its treasures forever, in this follow-up to the 2008 worldwide hit “Journey to the Center of the Earth.
According to TheWrap.com; “Back in May, Deal Central reported that “Earth” star Brendan Fraser was willing to hold out from the sequel out of loyalty to director Eric Brevig, who has been busy putting the finishing touches on Warner Bros.’ “Yogi Bear” in time for its Dec. 17 release. New Line wanted the “Journey” sequel for Fall 2011 and couldn’t wait around for the filmmaker, so the studio decided to move forward without Brevig or Fraser, who will now miss out on the sizable payday he was in line for.”
Some fans of the movie are outraged! Not so much at the change in director but the change in lead actor. Brenden Fraser is a character with a cult following that might snub a box office ticket due to this mistake by the studio. Nevertheless, the movie makes a box office debut and moviegoers will have to decide for themselves.
Enough about the character dispute! Let us take a look at the movie website for the film!
The website is plain and simple. The menu bar at the top takes you to the about section, video, photos, and downloads sections. There are no fancy or appealing transitions from one section to another, and no fancy layout for the content. The background images are fairly high quality, however, not the best at drawing the eye. There is a game that is called “Catch the Gold,” which is fairly addictive. The object of this game is to movie the character around and position him to catch the falling gold while dodging fallen lava balls! Pretty fun especially if you have some time to spare at work!
Journey 2 the mysterious island http://www.themysteriousisland.com/#home movie website rating! The sit, overall, is simple however the game is the min attraction and the time and effort for this simple yet effective interactivity was worth the visit! 3 out of 5 stars. ★★★
