MPAA Rating: PG       Length: 94 minutes

Age Appropriate for: 8+. Action scenes including a collapsing island and a romantic subplot, including one kiss between characters. Huge insects and a skeleton could be creepy for young kids.

‘Journey 2: The Mysterious Island’ is not a great movie when it comes to cinema overall, but with its feet firmly planted in classic literature, it’s an enjoyable family romp.
