Journey 2: The Mysterious Island

(PG) ★☆☆☆☆

This continuation of the 2008 remake of Journey to the Center of the Earth is only disguised as fun. Josh Hutcherson returns as Sean, now 17 and yet to warm up to his ex-Navy stepfather (Dwayne Johnson). Along comes a cryptogram from Sean’s grandfather (Michael Caine) containing news that Jules Verne’s island was no fiction. Sean and stepfather take off to the South Pacific to discover an island of miniature elephants, giant ants and bees.
