Those lovely people at Warner Brothers have just sent us a fabulous new package of goodies to celebrate the arrival of Journey 2: The Mysterious Island 3D on Blu-ray.
Our package included the movie, hologram jigsaws, a mysterious dinosaur egg, light up pens, tattoos and lots and lots of bugs!
The five year old was so excited he went running around the house screaming 'Mysterious Island! Mysterious Island!' about two hundred times before collapsing into a smiling heap in front of the telly.
But whilst he was obviously a big fan I have to admit I hadn't heard of it myself. Here's what Warner had to say about it...
JOURNEY 2: THE MYSTERIOUS ISLAND follows the adventures of Sean Anderson after he receives a coded distress signal from a mysterious location where no island should exist. It’s a place of giant creatures, mountains of gold, deadly volcanoes and more than one astonishing secret.
Unable to stop him from going, Sean’s new stepfather, Hank, joins the quest. Together with a helicopter pilot and his beautiful, strong-willed daughter they set out to find the island, rescue its lone inhabitant and escape before seismic shockwaves force the island under the sea and bury its treasures forever.
Experience the breathtaking beauty of the island and jump into the action to escape a giant eel and soar through the air on giant bees with the stunning high definition Blu-ray 3D release, which puts you at the heart of the thrilling adventure.
We put it on almost straight away and settled down with our 3D glasses to watch it on our funky Toshiba 3D TV.
I have to say it is a really good family movie. The kids all loved it and have scheduled it in for another viewing already. The 3D version is superb and whilst not all movies benefit from the 3D versions this one certainly does.
If you're lucky enough to have a 3D home entertainment system I would fully recommend the 3D version, and if not - well you certainly won't be disappointed with the 2D version either.
So if your kids are into jam packed action adventures, jungles, volcanos, bugs and giant lizards then this is the film for them!
