WHAT I LIKE?
Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle is by far the best Jumanji Franchise ever adapted on the big screen and is one of the best family-adventure movies of all time. I admit, I was apprehensive on the first time I saw its trailer. After watching the film, I was literally blown away and entertained. The movie gave justice to this well-loved video game material and offered a visually-stunning and highly-entertaining masterpiece worth every price of your admission ticket. The movie started off with 4 different high school students with unique characteristics. Their discovery of the Jumanji Console paved their way to be actually inside the game. What I like about the film is that it is very direct. With a few introductions, the movie’s premise revolved around the world of Jumanji which is really a great thing. In Jumanji, the 4 teens play their chosen avatars. I really loved the mixed of characters of the 4 main acts. They are lead by Dwayne Johnson which is at his normal best. Kevin Hart’s comedic timing is still impressive. The charm of Karen Gillan and her bad-ass character is such a perfect fit. Most of all, I was entertained with Jack Black portraying Bethany. The whole Jumanji world for me is very impressive. It showcased lots of visual spectacles and edge-of-the-seat thrills especially on most parts. The animal scenes and even the man-to-man fight scenes were all executed adding to the film’s dynamic plot and a very engaging storytelling techniques. Of course, with a little touch of mystery and treasure-hunting formula, Jumanji could easily pleased adventure-junkie audiences. Overall, I really like the whole packing of the movie. It has the perfect timing of comedy mixed with romance, thrills and even an inspiring message. Yes, the movie is inspiring for me. Knowing that they have limited lives inside the game, they must worked together to fight for survival. On the other hand, you begin to realize the value of your single life as well. I was really impressed and I was glued from beginning to end. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle is truly worth-watching many times.
