Bookmark and Share

Watched the Premiere Screening of 

Directed by Brad Peyton

Starring Dwayne Johnson, Michael Caine, Josh Hutcherson, Luis Guzman, Vanessa Hudgens, Kristin Davis

Storyline :

Young Sean Anderson (Josh Hutcherson, reprising his role from the first film) receives a coded distress signal from a mysterious island where no island should exist. It's a place of strange life forms, mountains of gold, deadly volcanoes, and more than one astonishing secret. Unable to stop him from going, Sean's new stepfather, Hank (Dwayne Johnson), joins the quest. Together with a helicopter pilot (Luis Guzman) and his beautiful, strong-willed daughter (Vanessa Hudgens), they set out to find the island, rescue its lone inhabitant and escape before seismic shockwaves force the island under the sea and bury its treasures forever. 


The 3D effects, & VFX are epic. Poor storyline though. 

Plot & Storyline was poor. If you've watched Journey to the Center of the Earth (aka Journey 1) starring Brendan Fraser, well, Journey 2 is sort of like that. It's like they remade the film.
Acting was okay. 
Visual & 3D Effects. Ah, yes. Because of their stunningly good 3D fx, the poor storyline can be excused. (: There's a number of scenes in the movie which put the audience in the movie. I'm saying this movie should be made into those theme park attraction than a movie in the cinema. 

I could actually state a few scenes where the 3D effects are really showing of, but that would be a spoiler right? ;) 

SO, If you are thinking of watching this movie, I highly recommend it in 3D! (preferably in IMAX 3D!, you won't  regret it , although, its a little pricey. :P 

*You can watch this movie in IMAX 3D @ TGV Sunway Pyramid. 

My Rating?

Plot : 2.75/5
Storyline : 3/5
Effects** : 5/5
OVERALL : 7/10.

"The year has come. 
The year which the Mayan calender will end. 
The year which the world will...."

OKAY, let's not scare ourselves that the world will come to an end on this year. :P 

I mean no one knows when or how the world will end. Those are just predictions, and they're not always right. The world could end at anytime, it could end in the next 100 years or it could end right now. 

2011 has passed. Now, it's a dawn of a new year which means new beginnings. 
So, just live life as it is & seize the moment! 

So, let's not be paranoid or anything and let's just usher the new year with joy & fruitfulness.

And here's a less horrifying picture. lol.  (:

Happy New Year 2012 !! (:
