JUMANJI – WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE (2017): The Thing I Liked…

Starring Kevin Hart, Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black and Karen Gillan, I found Jumanji – Welcome To The jungle to be OK. It’s just the kind of silly fun that kids will likely love most. It’s well modernised and there were some amusing moments, especially courtesy of  Jack Black’s portrayal of a teenage girl and Kevin Hart’s one-liners.

The reason that Jumanji is OK and not great is because by the end, I felt as though something was missing from the movie. Perhaps it’s substance, heart, character development or a mixture and then some, but for me, the amusing and clever moments aside, something is definitely missing at the very core. It doesn’t help that I wasn’t wholly convinced of Nick Jonas’s acting skills.

As I watched the film, the jungle setting did have me reminiscing about how much fun I had while watching Kong Skull Island (2017). Overall, I say watch Jumanji – Welcome To The Jungle if you’re curious enough. It may just be the kind of silly fun you need.

JUMANJI – WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE (2017): New Trailer From Kevin Hart, Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Karen Gillan…

Four teenagers are sucked into Jumanji‘s world – pitted against rhinos, black mambas and an endless variety of jungle traps and puzzles. They must  beat the game to return to Planet Earth with their lives. Directed by Jake Kasden, the stars of Jumanji – Welcome To The Jungle are Kevin Hart, Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Karen Gillan…

All I remember about Robin Williams’ Jumanji (1995) is that the characters sported khaki attire and ran away from stuff in the jungle. This trailer looks very promising and I’m most excited about the humour.

Nick Jonas, Missi Pyle and Rhys Darby also star.

Jumanji – Welcome To The Jungle  Release Dates: December 22nd, 2017 (US); December 29th, 2017 (UK)…
