Journey 2: The Mysterious Island (Blu-ray release 2012-6-5) creates another excuse for a teenager to go on an adventure with his stepfather. The movie is marginally entertaining, at least things happen quickly enough. I hate annoying characters, so I’m unable to like this movie. To make things worse, it makes no attempt to explain the impossible physics the characters perform to rescue people. It also has a distinct lack of transition scenes – one scene we’re at the bottom of the pacific ocean seeing coral reef, the next scene is “6 months later” at the house. The only improvement over the predecessor is that the CG is somewhat less fake this time.
