There is another Jules Verne novel titled "The Golden Volcano," which, although is set in the Canadian Arctic during the gold rush, spews gold nuggets when it erupts. This is likely where the mountains of gold came from for this movie. See more »
The helicopter in Palau has a registration number that begins with N. This indicates it is registered in the United States. Palau as part of Micronesia would have an aircraft registration beginning with V6. See more »
You know, I think it's best we get out of here. Besides, after that mating call of yours, she may have ideas about making you her husband.
Oh, witty. Good for you, Henry.
The name's Hank. It's never Henry. Just Hank.
Ah. I see you're a man of incisive decision. Why don't you lead the way? Oh, actually, we want to live through the night. Yes. So maybe you should all follow me.

The 17-year-old Sean Anderson (Josh Hutcherson) receives a coded signal and his stepfather Hank (Dwayne Johnson) helps him to decipher the message. They find that Sean's grandfather Alexander Anderson (Michael Caine) has found the mysterious island in the Pacific described by Julio Verne and two other writers in their novels.
The stubborn Sean wants to travel to the coordinates and Hank decides to buy the tickets and travel with the teenager to a small island nearby the location. They rent an old helicopter owned by the locals Gabato (Luis Guzmán) and his teenage daughter Kailani (Vanessa Hudgens) and the group heads to the unknown spot. Along their journey, they cross a hurricane and crash in the island. They find a beautiful and dangerous place, surrounded by forests, volcanoes with lava of gold and menacing life forms. The meet also the old Alexander and Hank discovers that the island is sinking. Now their only chance to survive is to find the legendary Nautilus.
"Journey 2: The Mysterious Island" is a movie with a trailer that is better than the film itself. The lame screenplay begins in a fast pace, with Hank and Sean guessing to quickly the message. The story is very weak and the film is supported by the special effects only. The spoiled Sean and the rude Alexander are detestable characters and Gabato is stupid and annoying and never funny as supposed to be. Hank is multi- skilled in codes, hydraulic and electric engineering, medicine, and music and diving. In the end, "Journey 2: The Mysterious Island" is a very disappointing adventure. My vote is four.
Title (Brazil): "Viagem 2: A Ilha Misteriosa" ("Journey 2: The Mysterious Island")
