"This is transcendently goofy....It is jolly and good-natured, and Michael Caine and Dwayne Johnson are among the most likable of actors."
USA Today - 02/10/2012
"[The film] features a likable performance from Dwayne Johnson....It's a spectacular place with a gold-spewing volcano, tiny elephants and iridescent butterflies the size of eagles."
Intrepid young explorer Sean Anderson (Josh Hutcherson) traces a mysterious distress signal to a remote island that isn't on any map, and he embarks on a daring rescue mission while encountering a vast array of mythological creatures in this follow-up to 2008's JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE EARTH. Joined by his new stepfather (Dwayne Johnson), an adventure-seeking helicopter pilot (Luis Guzman), and the pilot's headstrong daughter (Vanessa Hudgens), Sean navigates the crumbling stone corridors of Atlantis and comes face-to-face with bizarre life-forms while on a mission to track down his long-missing grandfather (Michael Caine). Later, as seismic shock waves threaten mass destruction, the group must race to escape the otherworldly paradise before the ocean swallows it up.
