Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017)
Genre: Action, Adventure, Comedy
I recently got to see this movie in a preview and was extremely excited to see this sequel to one of my favourite childhood films of all time. I was so happy to not be disappointed, surprised and was captivated from beginning to the end 😀 . I loved all the characters in this film especially the character of Bethany (Madison Iseman and Jack Black) 🙂 . She surprised me as a character (I liked her more than I thought I would) and Jack Black was hilarious as a teenage girl 😛 . Nick Jonas was also a great addition and his character of Alex was very intriguing for the story. My favourite avatar characters were Dr. Smolder Bravestone (Dwayne Johnson) and Ruby Roundhouse (Karen Gillan) especially their skill set in the game 😛 . The story was strong and entertaining plus the comedy element in this movie was high. I was laughing throughout and liked all characters though Fridge (Ser’Darius Blain and Kevin Hart) was my least favourite (though his character got better later on 😛 ). I liked how the game changed, I loved the world inside the game plus the CGI was very good. I also adored that they had not forgotten the original movie by adding a reference now and then. The action scenes were great especially the scene with the helicopter 😀 . I was very happy with this movie and it did exactly what it said it would do from the trailers. This is a great sequel for any original Jumanji fan and I cannot wait to watch this movie again 🙂 . Enjoy 😀
I give this film 5 Stars out of 5!
