In a Nutshell: Sean Anderson is back, and he misses his adventure days. The trip to the centre of the earth with Trevor and Hannah seems like ages ago, and Sean is dying to go on another exploration. He finally gets his chance when he receives word from his missing grandfather about the mysterious island that Jules Verne wrote about. Sean sets off to find him and the island along with Hank, his stepfather, Kailani, a super pretty native, and Gabato, Kailani's crazy, funny dad.
The Good Stuff: The effects were awesome (especially in 3D!), and the actors portrayed their characters well. The movie had a good mix of adventure and humor.
The Not-So-Good Stuff: There were a few values in the characters that I didn't really agree with. Of course, there was kissing.
