Synopsis:

Jules Verne's classic novel Mysterious Island is being conceived as a sequel to the film based on another of his novels Journey to the Center of the Earth.

  • Poster: C

Review:

Dwayne Johnson isn't exactly the sales tool he used to be, so putting him front and center seems pointless. This action photo does a fine job showing us just how unoriginal the idea behind the film is.

  • Trailer: C-

Review:

With Brendan Fraser notably absent, the film's only link to the original, apart from the hokey title is Josh Hutcherson who can't be hurting for money or acclaim at this point. The film looks utterly banal with Dwayne Johnson hamming it up while Michael Caine looks to be having a bit of the time of his life. It looks pretty, but is probably pretty vacuous.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
