Eh. This was so-so. I like the rock so ill give this a 6 out of 10. The original was WAYYYYY better.
Previous 2 parts were much better story wise, however effects are good in this part.
Fun, Silly Twist on the Original. Watch with Your Kids
This is such a dumb movie but honestly that’s what makes it so great. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle is a fun movie that doesn’t take itself seriously and it shows. Of course it’s a twist on the original Jumanji movie that will never capture the same magic. But for everyone expecting it to be a giant flop, it ends up being pretty fun.
3.5/5. Above expectations.
This never happened to the kids in ‘The Breakfast Club’!
This film opens with the viewer being introduced to the four high school protagonists who find themselves in detention together. They are; Spencer Gilpin, an intelligent but shy boy; Anthony “Fridge” Johnson, Spencer’s friend who is a football player needing academic ‘help’ who are caught cheating; Bethany Walker, a popular girl who used her phone in class and Martha Kaply, an academic high-flier who doesn’t see the point of physical education… or PE teachers. Once in detention together they are left alone in a room and find an old games console. The hook it up to a TV and select their characters… then they find themselves sucked into the game in the bodies of their characters. They also gain their characters’ allotted skills.
Somewhat inevitably their new in-game avatars are rather different to their real world characters. Spencer finds himself in the body of man-mountain Dwayne Johnson; Fridge ends up as Kevin Hart, no longer a great athlete but with knowledge that the team will need; Bethany is perhaps the most shocked when she becomes Jack Black and Martha finds herself in the scantily clad body of Karen Gillan… complete with martial arts skills. They soon meet a character who gives them their task… if they are to exit the game they are to return a gem to the statue it was stolen from. If they are to escape they will need to adapt to their new strengths and weaknesses and work as a team as they face a variety of challenges. It helps that they each have three lives but it is far from clear what happens if they lose the third… although they assume it means real death.
I haven’t seen the original ‘Jumanji’ but thought this would be worth checking out as the concept sounded fun and the four lead actors have all impressed me in the past. They may be very different but the film this made me think of was ‘The Breakfast Club’; not just because it involves students in detention. Like that film it shows the characters are more than their stereotypes; something they learn when they suddenly find themselves forced to as characters very different to their own. The cast are all on great form and provide many laughs. It was great seeing Dwayne Johnson playing a slightly wimpy character and it was hilarious seeing Jack Black as a high school girl! Kevin Hart and Karen Gillan really impressed as well. The action was solid with good CGI making it look real. The villain didn’t have much of a character but that makes sense given that they are meant to be in a game… all the non-player characters are comically limited in what they say and do. The spectacular Hawaiian countryside is used to great effect to make the land of Jumanji. While there are no real surprises the story is a lot of with its impressive mix of action, humour and great characters. The humour mostly avoids crudeness… even the idea of a high school girl coming to terms with her new male body is dealt with in a way that is unlikely to offend too many people. Overall I’d definitely recommend this fans of ‘Indiana Jones’ style action.
