The Mysterious Island
Wow! What a
fantastic morning out! Our adventure started about an hour before the
film started when we came face to face with several very friendly
reptiles and amphibians. After some very close encounters, rewarded with
ruck sacks and our own toy lizards we tasted some very interesting
snacks - edible ants, mealworms and crickets!
We then went
in to see the film. We were not too sure what to expect as we had not
seen the previous film Journey to the Centre of the Earth. We need not
have worried the film was really good. There was lots of action to keep
everyone on the edge of their seats.
started with Sean (Josh Hutcherson) being stopped by the police for
breaking in to a communications satellite building. He was rescued by
his step father (Dwayne Johnson) who he was having a very strained
relationship with. The two began their bonding while solving the
mysterious communication Sean had received at the satellite building
from his Grandfather (Michael Caine). The pair took a trip to the South
Pacific to look for the
mysterious island. They buy the services of Gabato (Luis Guzman) the
helicopter pilot and his daughter Kailani (Vanessa Hudgens) to help in
their quest. What they find there you will have to see for yourself but
will say that the scenery was breathtaking.
the film makers really had it in for him, what with bird pooh, being
buried in sand and many other mishaps.
film gives you a bit of everything, comedy, adventure, a love story and
plenty of suspense!
links to several books by Jules Verne, any Vernians will love the
references to his literature and if like me you have never read one of
his books I bet it won’t be long before you do!
This is a
real family film, small children may find some scenes a bit scary but
there were plenty of little ones that sat happily through the film while
we were there.
This film is
definitely worth a trip out during half term.
