Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle

The new Jumanji movie certainly won’t win any awards.  What it will do, however, is provide laughs the entire way through.  The cast of Jack Black, Dwayne Johnson, and Kevin Hart don’t immediately appear in the movie but it isn’t boring.  The movie does a good job in the first half hour of setting things up to the point that you actually care about what happens to each of the characters throughout the rest of the film.  Jumanji also sees an upgrade for a new generation that doesn’t play board games anymore.  The new version is a video game.

While the plot is fairly simple, just get to the end of the game, each of the characters’ personalities really shine here.  The transformation that Dwayne Johnson has made in his career is truly amazing and stands out in particular.  His ability to move from drama, comedy, and action during a two hour movie while still managing to be convincing is on full display.

 

The CG didn’t disappoint in this one either.  The vibrant landscapes and depictions of various jungle animals helped to enhance the overall feel of the movie.

 

This movie is all out good fun with laughs, action, and drama.  One of the best of its’ kind so far.
