The tables are turned as four teenagers are sucked into Jumanji's world - pitted against rhinos, black mambas and an endless variety of jungle traps and puzzles. To survive, they'll play as characters from the game.
This is an astonishing documentary that will wring your heart while it bends your mind
what a terribly boring film. I'm sorry but this is absolutely not deserving of best picture and will be forgotten quickly. Entertaining and engaging cinema? No. Nothing performances with flat faces and mistaking silence for subtlety.
Very good movie overall, highly recommended. Most of the negative reviews don't have any merit and are all pollitically based. Give this movie a chance at least, and it might give you a different perspective.
The movie is surprisingly subdued in its pacing, its characterizations, and its go-for-broke sensibilities.
Everything about this movie is bad. Even the stuff that is sorta good. (Which is the chemistry between the cast.). The original is a masterpiece of good news v bad news in an action story. Robin Williams gave an iconic performance. The jungle sequences were insane. This film has almost no good jungle sequences and it's just the characters who do a lot of bad jokes. Everyone involved who made this project disgusts me.
Jumanji is a game about animals, we hardly see a few in this new film
I thought the humor was the greatest. Jack Black probably stole the show with his portrayal of a teenage girl. He was so much fun! Of course, it was way off the original movie, but that honestly doesn't bother me when a movie is done well.
I watched it 2 more times and laughed every time! Great writing, directing and acting. Loved that each character got to "walk in someone else's shoes".
