Movie Review: ‘Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle’

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle delivers a fun sequel with a great cast. Revamping the board game concept into the new era of gaming, this movie ensnares a group of students with a video game that sucks them into the world of Jumanji. From there, they become their avatars played by Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Kevin Hart and Karen Gillan.

It’s just the right mix for a fun film as the cast not only gets to do a comedy adventure film set in a video game universe, but they also get to play up on the idea that each of them is really a kid. The scrawny video game playing nerd becomes The Rock. The center of attention pretty girl becomes Jack Black. The big football player becomes the little Kevin Hart, and the nerdy girl becomes the beautiful Karen Gillan. From there, they have to save Jumanji by capture a gem before the big bad guy can.

If there’s a weak spot in the movie, it’s the villain played by Bobby Cannavale. He’s okay, but he’s definitely out shined by the rest of the cast. If you’re looking for a fun movie, this one’s a good pick. I give it a four out of five metal bikinis.
