Journey 2: The Mysterious Island

Happy Chinese New Year, Gong Xi Fa Chai to those who are celebrating it and Happy Holiday to those who are enjoying it :) Right before the CNY week, I watched Journey 2: The Mysterious Island and Underworld: Awakening but was too occupied to blog, but anyhow here it is now.
If "The Rock" (Dwayne Johnson) is not your cup of tea, then Vanessa Hudgens should at least attract you to the movie, but that's not the whole point.
Journey 2 by the title itself explained that it is an adventure, an adventure to a place where none had come across before, and true enough it is like what you've expected.
The story wise is yet another "yeah I've seen that", but is the visual effect (or cast perhaps?) worth you watching such story again?
While the Mysterious Island is a fresh new place to explore, it wasn't as good as the world we seen in Avatar IMHO. The stunt was there but the kick wasn't
The 3D effect was surprisingly good with people actually avoiding flying objects around me and such effect was thoroughly maintained through out the movie. Bet watching this in IMAX would definitely boost the WOW factor especially on a kid.
Well seriously, there is nothing too who-ha in such plot but the effects are what worth catching it. After all it is the festival / holiday season, why not bring along your family to enjoy a relaxing paceand family oriented movie.

Rate: 2/5
