— The Hollywood Reporter has the first review for the Rock’s Journey 2: The Mysterious Island. They gave the film a middling review, saying, “The targeted demographic [kids]…will gladly hop aboard for a cornball ride through colorful, often glaringly phony sets popping with miniature elephants, gold-spewing volcanoes, and a monster-truck-sized lizard. For the adults, there’s the edifying sight of Michael Caine astride a giant bee. The Rock’s performance is said to be not entirely successful, saying, “Johnson sets the tone with an affable goofiness, although never ignites the spark that his labored banter with Caine requires.”
