MOVIE REVIEW - "JOURNEY 2: THE MYSTERIOUS ISLAND"

Long time no movie :) At one time, there are too many movies being screened at the same time and at another time, there is none. I had watched the trailer of this one before so at least I knew it would be something worth watching.

Adapted from a novel of the same title by Jules Verne, the same author who wrote "Journey to the Centre of the Earth" and "Around the World in 80 Days", it was a son-stepfather adventure through the mysterious island somewhere in the Pacific. Other than cute creatures and horrible monsters - you would be brought into a colourful and too-good-to-be true island where there were ashes of gold that came from the volcano came flying down from the sky. The movie was a cross between "Jurassic Park", "Indiana Jones" and "Avatar".

Nevertheless, the whole film was really entertaining, and it should fall under the genre of comedy for the whole family. The main actor, The Rock, did a good job and the moral of the story, if you have the muscle, it doesn't mean that you don't have the funny bones. What I don't understand is that the film is not suitable for children under 13 years old. And they rated "Ombak Rindu" as [U] which was suitable for anybody any age. *sigh*
