Consensus: Aggressively unambitious, Journey 2 might thrill tween viewers, but most others will find it too intense for young audiences and too cartoonishly dull for adults.

The equivalent of throwing "Jurassic Park," "Avatar" and the absolute worst episode ever of "Land of the Lost" in a blender and pushing "garble."

Journey to ridiculous. But nice visuals/SFX. The Rock delivers the same crappola performance he's famous for...sadly.
