Entertainment Weekly

By Lisa Schwarzbaum
The movie flies by pleasantly, and is then instantly forgettable. Perhaps Jules Verne can explain the science of that.

This is transcendently goofy. It isn't a "good" movie in the usual sense (or most senses), but it is jolly and good-natured, and Michael...

This is a family movie, after all -- but you'll have to sit through some abrasively broad, unfunny exchanges to get there. Dialogue, alas,...

Fast Paced Family Fun

By scottjsutton
Well paced action movie. Didn't get bogged down with "explanations", rather just moved swiftly forward. Family fun (no one dies)! Kind of like a Universal Studios ride....

Great CLEAN movie!

By picaraperez
This movie is a great movie for adults and kids. My husband and I usually have to opt for animated movies on account of our 6-year-old but I had read another review saying that this movie has no...

Adventurous with some laughs

I never read the book upon which the story is based, so I can't compare the two. I wouldn't have gone at all except that my mom and brother wanted to see it and I went along for the ride .. but it...

Eh.

By soxcited4j
I didn't realize this movie was going to be geared so much to the younger crowd as it was. If you have a 7-13 year old son this would be a great movie for them. That aside, a beautifully made movie!...

Journey 2 excitement

Never like movies with a 2 in the title, but I love the Rock and all of the special effects made this a must go! Finally a 3D that actually used 3D effects - need more! Plus this fan enjoyed the...

Journey 2 was a fun for everyone!

I'm a father of two who decided to take my kids to see Journey 2, as it was raining here in "sunny" San Diego. I love taking my kids to movies, but was actually a bit skeptical if both would enjoy...

Great Kids Movie

Good fun.

By mikedc16
So long as you check your brain at the door, this is a fun movie. The Rock is pretty funny and the movie uses the 3D effect quite well in many places. It's a fun way to kill 90 minutes of your...
