Lent 14 'Journey 2 The Mysterious Island" is pure family fun

Despite a critical pummeling, **Journey 2 The Mysterious Island** has been re silent at the box office. Currently the IMAX treat at the Fort Lauderdale Museum of Discovery until March 9th (when **John Carter on Mars** opens), **Journey 2 the Mysterious Island** is a fun adventure movie for the whole family.

A loose sequel to **Journey to the Center of the Earth 3-D,** Josh Hutchenson returns as Sean, a teenage rebel with some intelligence. He has received a secret ham radio code from his long lost grandfather, Alexander (Michael Caine), a character who could be a charter member of the dearly departed **Adventurers Club.** Kungaloosh. Despite protests from his Mom (Kristin Davis) and Stepfather (Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson), Sean embarks on a quest to find his long lost grandfather.

**Journey 2 The Mysterious Island** is Saturday Matinee popcorn eating entertainment, a trademark of producer Charlotte Huggins, whose previous MODS IMAX credits include **Encounter in the Third Dimension,** **Alien Adventure** and the first **Journey.** Yet if one scratches the surface of **Journey 2 the Mysterious Island,** one will find science and literature competencies that will support, in a cool way, a public school curriculum.

Four years ago while promoting his original **Journey,** Josh Hutchenson was honored by the **Palm Beach International Film Festival.**
