Intrepid young explorer Sean Anderson (Josh Hutcherson) traces a mysterious distress signal to a remote island that isn't on any map, and he embarks on a daring rescue mission while encountering a vast array of mythological creatures in this follow-up to 2008's Journey to the Center of the Earth. Joined by his new stepfather (Dwayne Johnson), an adventure-seeking helicopter pilot (Luis Guzman), and the pilot's headstrong daughter (Vanessa Hudgens), Sean navigates the crumbling stone corridors of Atlantis and comes face-to-face with bizarre life-forms while on a mission to track down his long-missing grandfather (Michael Caine). Later, as seismic shock waves threaten mass destruction, the group must race to escape the otherworldly paradise before the ocean swallows it up.~Jason Buchanan

The plot involves an adventure to a mysterious island based on writings by Jules Verne. Sean (Josh Hutcherson) is a young scientist drawn to the island by his grandfather (Michael Cane). His stepfather (Dwayne Johnson) is also on the trip as a member of the family. They arrive to find the lost City of Atlantis but need to escape quickly due to it's golden volcanic activity. It's realistic but the helicoptor pilot says it's in the Pacific Ocean instead of the Atlantic. The real Atlantis is likely under the North Beach of Paradise Island, Bahamas. It has ruins and other ancient artifacts which sort of resemble Mayan ruins. I recommend you see this movie and take a trip to Atlantis in the Bahamas. Experience it yourself and decide if you think it is Atlantis. Great action acting and directing. Mystery solved?
