* {{Macekre}}: Rather infamously in some circles. JulesVerne in general is poorly translated, and this book in particular received absolutely terrible translations. Pretty much everything that FourKidsEntertainment did to ''Anime/OnePiece'', Griffith and Farran did to this book, [[OlderThanTheyThink almost 150 years earlier]].

* ArcFatigue: The first several chapters are just Axel and the Professor's journey from Germany to Iceland. They can be skipped without missing anything. These chapters are boring enough in the original, but in [[CutAndPasteTranslation the most well-known English translation]], they become downright unbearable.

** Or even Josh Hutcherson. Film/{{The Hunger Games}} opened the month after ''Journey 2 the Mysterious Island'' did, and surely some new fans became interested in Journey 2 for that instance alone.

Added DiffLines:

** How does one steer a giant untrained bee?
** Maps are optional features in most books.
** Verne's Nautilus did not have torpedoes (Nemo sinks his shipping by ramming), and Professor Arronaux was light on the details of the submarine's controls. And batteries do not work like that.

** Conventional ham radio does not use satellites; signals may however be skipped off the ionosphere.

** One of the English translations of the book added a dream sequence where Axel (or "Harry", as he is renamed) witnesses a battle between a giant ape and crocodile and is then attacked by the ape before waking up. It's a completely pointless scene that only succeeds in making the reader further lament that the story doesn't feature more prehistoric creatures.

* NonSingingVoice: Averted; that really is Dwayne Johnson singing "What A Wonderful World" with new lyrics (and again over the end credits, with the proper ones).
* TheOtherDarrin: Sean's mother was played by Jane Wheeler in the 2008 film. Here, it's Kristen Davis.

* PlayingAgainstType: Given that most of Creator/VanessaHudgens's screen roles have her as [[Film/SuckerPunch someone who]] [[Film/MacheteKills isn't as]] [[Film/SpringBreakers sweet as]] [[Film/{{Bandslam}} she looks]], the gentle Kailani practically ''is'' PlayingAgainstType for her.

* {{Narm}}: Pat Boone's Alec shouting out "Hi-ai!" to alert his fellow spelunkers, just for how awkward the antiquated expression sounds to a modern ear.

* CriticalResearchFailure: The last name of the character Hannah Ásgeirsson in the 2008 film should by all rights be "Ásgeirs'''dóttir'''" (meaning "daughter of Ásger", as opposed to "son of Ásgeir"). Icelanders don't pass their last names onto their children, so Icelandic women with last names ending on "son" is pretty much unheard of.
