Just got back from the new Jumanji movie, and I had a lot of fun. All of the characters were great and they had fantastic chemistry together. I loved the Rock and Kevin Hart (back from Central Intelligence), but Jack Black really stood out with the funniest and most eccentric performance by far. The setup for the movie was solid (albeit a bit simple), and it served its purpose in giving us funny scenarios for the characters. This is definitely a fun movie to watch and just enjoy for some laughs and action especially if you haven't seen the trailer (the trailer spoils a few of the funny scenes). 7/10.

I don't care what people say... I liked this movie! Sure some bits where predictable but I laughed most of the movie! Just like Baywatch... Don't think to much and just enjoy the movie

The draw for me to this show was Dwayne Johnson (son of Nova Scotia born Rocky Johnson from Amherst) and Karen Gillian. I'd alway thought I'd enjoy The Rock but was never drawn to his movie choices, and Karen Gillian has been crushing it ever since her DOCTOR WHO days. This movie was a blast! Situationally funny, challenging social mores, drawing life affirming conclusions, big adventure, great comedic timing and talent. It was a hoot and I'll probably watch it again when it is released to DVD. I give it an 8 (great) out of 10. [Young Adult, Action, Adventure, Comedy].

I was wondering how this movie was going to go since they modernised it the way they did. But it worked so well! I laughed, I was on the edge of my seat because of the excitement, and it was a really beautiful movie to look at. There is a slight chance that I loved this one more than the original. The cast was amazing, and the script was fast paced and well written. With just the right amount of adventure and jokes. I really enjoyed it and I would for sure watch it again!

Little shoutout to Jack Black. The whole cast was amazing but that man, he was brilliant!

It was a lot of fun... and Jack Black was great

Jumanji 2: Bored Game. They took the original idea and sucked all the charm from it, leaving a film where the game aspect is only cosmetic cover for a run-of-the-mill action movie.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle is a tribute to Robin Williams because watching it will make you miss him and his irreplaceable talent all the more.

Still, there was one bright spot. You can play a drinking game where you must drink a shot every time you spot the piercing hole above Karen Gillan's navel. Call it, Drink Like a Hole. It'll help you forget this wasted opportunity.

I wasn’t expecting much and it didn’t deserve the budget and rating It got and glad it wasn’t a reboot because it had no chance to live up to (Robin Williams) masterpiece but don’t get me wrong it was alright, it kept me entertained at times with It's sense of humour, It's action, little cheesy at times thought and I liked the game theme style and specially the characters that brought the comedy to the jungle. It needs to up It's game in the upcoming threequeal.

I really enjoyed it! It was entertaining, guaranteed to make you laugh! Jack Black was amazing in particular. :')

I’v been wanting to watch this film for months and it didn’t disappoint. Great cast, even the random hottie was brilliant! I say random hottie, it took me the whole film to realise that she plays Nebula in guardians of the galaxy! Damn she looks great as a human being.. Jack Black 10 out of 10 for his performance! He made me laugh the most.. Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart will make any film work together.. what a great film to end Easter!!

This was an absolute gem. Laughed the whole film through!

loading replies

I'm 34 and extremely hard to satisfy with comedies and non-drama movies. If something doesn't make sense it ruins the movies for me and I'll give bad review.
In this one, not at all! I was entertained the entire movie! I doesn't take itself seriously and there are great self-awareness moments. Everybody did a good job, and my wife and I had lots of fun.

Easy 8/10.
Very recommended for everybody!

after 15mins turned it off, dont want to spoil the memory of a great movie from my childhood with this nonsense. how do i give it a 1/10 rating?

loading replies

very funny and also very crude

loading replies

The first is much better, due to the late great Robin Williams and musical score by the late James Horner. Welcome to the Jungle lacks the fantasy, mystery or excitement of the first.
I say "first" because this is actually a sequel that starts out right after the 1995 film. That film had it's goofy moments but this one is mostly goofy. I also think there was more to the board game plot of the first. Since there was more surprises with that plot.
Welcome to the Jungle is more Pixels in the Jungle with Breakfast Club like characters. Doesn't capture what I liked about the first. Yet, it some how has 77% good reviews and the superior 1995 film only has 50%.

8 - Great

Definitively a surprise that it's such a great movie, though that's mostly the acting and not necessarily the plot. Something different than the original, but that isn't a bad thing.

loading replies

Zoology, bitch!!!

So retro, I really loved this.

loading replies

this was lowkey funny and a good time! plus, i think the premise of getting sucked into a game is awesome. oh, and it also needed more women. i was excited when i first started it thinking "oh damn this is actually going to be 50% male and 50% female", but then one of them turned into a man, and then nick jonas completed the bunch , making it the usual 4/5 male 1/5 female lmfao, nothing we're not used to ig

7/10

The movie is so silly and really fun to watch! Some scenes are ridiculous and (in most cases purposely) cringey. The original version was much more serious and nerve-racking. This sequel was more concentrated on the comedy and combining awesomeness and awkwardness, which I'm not saying is bad! But the first part made me more nervous then laugh, while this one was the opposite which separates it a lot from the original version in my opinion. It doesn't feel that much like a sequel (not saying that it is a bad thing). But I still loved it and was not disappointed! The actors were a perfect fit and I just loved the whole idea of how Jumanji evolved into a video game so it would draw people to play it. Really gave it a new level of creepiness for me.

loading replies

Well I had my feelings that this sequel wouldn't be as good as the first especially without Robin Williams,they should of kept the same premise and have children find the boardgame not young adults,you definitely notice Robin Williams missing there no substance,and what's with the guys on motorcycles,should of been more CGI animals would of worked better...they should of not made it...4/10

loading replies

Just like McDonald's... A 7/10 and ya knew it walking in

loading replies

The movie is quite ok and funny, but I'd also recommend watching the original. It is obviously not quite as modern (they are using a board game) and funny but it is a bit more serious, has a great cast and is in my opinion the better movie (although IMDB currently says otherwise).

loading replies

I watched the movie with prejudice. But it was a successful. Cast was very good and could not have a cast that much fit and it was fluent movie

loading replies

Dont waste your time. This empty shell of a movie has nothing to do with Jumanji nor does it have a plot or any moment of fun whatsoever. I haven't even cringed trough the whole film, it simply gave nothing, just bites your time. You deserve better, don't waste 2 hours of your life on this crap.

loading replies

Wonderful! So much fun! Everybody was great, but Jack Black stole the show!

loading replies

This was an incredibly funny masterful sequel to the original. Enjoyed every minute with a fantastic cast!

loading replies

Much better than I originally anticipated. Very funny, the characters are actually really interesting. I particularly loved how it plays out just like a game with character traits, cut scenes and background characters.

loading replies

This is a fun "turn your brain off" movie. Plenty of jokes, decent action, and all around great performances. Jack Black really being the standout with the gender swap. Some nice call backs to the original without making it necessary to have seen that. There is enough here that everybody should have a good time watching this.

loading replies

Great movie. 6-year old girl, 12-year old boy, and 48-year old dad loved it. Funny, good action scenes, not too scary for the younger ones. Good family fare the The Rock is so good at picking.

loading replies

A lot of fun. Maybe too many jokes (although many are quite funny) and it's about 20 minutes too long but the clever writing and great cast makes up for that.

loading replies

I think this is such a well done sequel to a film done over 20 years later. I realize that some are unhappy about the changes to the game itself, but I feel like it was a brilliant way to incorporate it changing as times changed. The game adapted itself. Video games became more popular than board games; so it fits. In this case I don't see any real reason for such a detail to have stayed the same, because it wasn't a redo; it was a sequel and a new story, and a redo just wasn't needed since the first was so good standing on its own. I think most of us can agree that good ones don't necessarily need to be redone, but that making something new from the inspiration of the old can be a lot of fun. Speaking of fun, this movie makes me laugh a lot! Oh yeah, and I loved the short and sweet way they did the callback to the original; "Alan Parrish was here."

I love it! Reminds me of good Indiana Jones, not as good but it's still great

Number Two Jumanji Welcome to the Jungle

loading replies

Fun movie! Lacked the mysterious thrilling vibes of the original but that could also be because I was a kid when I watched the 1995 film.
I enjoyed it more than I thought I would. Four characters that quickly grew on me. Excellent choice in casting.

loading replies

It's a really, really, reeeeally dumb movie. But to be fair, I don't think anybody would expect it to be a masterpiece, so... no disappointments. It's actually better than I thought; entertaining and fun to watch, despite all the cheesy lines and the soooo very predictable plot.

I just have a major complaint though: what the hell happened with the helicopter? Why didn't they just use it to get to the top of the jaguar? When did they ditch it? And why did they need it then, at all? :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

Also, no gamer worth that title would stop looking at the screen to check instead where the buttons are in the controller... :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes::stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

Just started and I’m already loving it. It feels like I’m watching the old movie without watching the old movie. Huge childhood-vibes already. Can’t wait to see how this is going to go.

“Where’s my hair” and “AAGH! I’m a Middle Aged man!” already killed it :joy:

And “:two_hearts: that’s a man right there...”
Spencer: don’t cry don’t cry don’t cry

Gosh this is so quotable.

Smouldering intensity.

Weakness: cake :joy:

"Charming cast and a humorous twist to offer an undemanding yet solidly entertaining update on its source material."

loading replies

I'm honestly still on the fence with this one, it's interesting but it just doesn't have that feel to it like the original. Some remakes just shouldn't be made and I think that this is one of them.

loading replies

Jack Black rules! Thought it would be a terrible movie, but quite enjoyed it.

loading replies

It's funny and the characthers are funny too. I really enjoyed my time watching

loading replies

Watched with the youngest middle kid, T. Fun. Nothing special, but fun. We'd watched the original awhile ago and T really enjoyed it, despite the aged computer generated special effects.

I'd seen only bits of the plot to this in trailers and didn't know much beyond that the stars (from the poster) were in it. I was confused when the focus seemed to be on a bunch of kids... All got resolved hilariously, I really liked this bit.

I'm pretty "meh" when it comes to Jack Black (loved High Fidelity, liked School of Rock, HATED Nacho Libre), but he was perfect in this. Also really enjoyed the play between Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart (Weakness: Cake). It's still weird but great to see Karen Gillan in movies as she will forever be Amy Pond. I'm glad she's not being typecast (her roll in the MCU is awesome). My daughter laughed her butt off at one particular cameo...

We had a lot of fun watching this.

Pretty decent. The plot is ok, and if you're looking for an easy-to-watch, entertaining comedy/action film, here's one of those.

I just got finish watching Jumanji and it was surprisingly good. This is by far the best movie that Dwayne Johnson & Kevin Hart has starred in. I usually find Kevin Hart to be more annoying than funny, but in this movie, he was enjoyable to watch.

I wouldn't mind watching it again. I give it 7/10

Better than it has any business being. I think the best part is the pacing - and the directive team deserves props for this. The characters (both sets!) are likeable, and the movie has a perfect balance of comedy and seriousness. The video game references are good too, never being too obnoxious. Do not sleep on this movie, it's nothing like you think it is. I haven't seen a movie that made me feel this good in a really, really long time.

Really Great movie to start my "2018 movie list "

Spencer is supposed to be 'Fearless' yet, he's afraid of everything! This one plot hole distracted me from enjoying the movie everything he got scared or frightened of something.

Jumanji was much better than I expected, but I didn't expect to ever watch it.

The chemistry of the cast was amazing throughout the entire movie. They did a bang up job putting this group together. The movie is a fun action movie, with some fun/silly jabs of video games mixed in.

The story isn't anything amazing, and some of the dialog felt weird, but I laughed throughout and was entertained for the full 2 hours.

Tons of silly fun, with great dialogue and terrific casting and chemistry all around on the game side of things while those on the reality side were serviceable and at least didn't torpedo the larger effort. Despite having heard some good things that raised my expectations about this one ahead of time, I was still very pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed almost everything about it. Solid entertainment.

This movie is not has good has the first one. This is more family orentent, then the original. They should have left has a board game and not do a game console version. The characters did a good job, but there are some corney scenes in this movie. Saying that there is also some funny moments in the movie.
The villain in this story does not play up to the potetial of a good villain. Not the actors fault, just the way the plot was written. This good have been such a better movie if the story line was better.

Went into this movie not thinking I was going to like it because I was such a fan of the original Jumanji but I was pleasantly surprised how well the film makers made this new movie full of funny moments, great action sequences, and an ensemble cast that had a lot of chemistry together. Lastly it had well done nods to the original Jumanji as well.

It was way funnier than I thought it would be.

loading replies

I guess nobody needed this move. I am not a big fan of the original, I did not see any point in doing a remake.

I have to say, however, that I was positively suprised. Kevin Hart isn't as anyoing as he is in most of his other movies, Dwayne Johnson plays really good, and Karen Gillian was also really great. I especially loved how those managed to capture the essence of their real life counterparts that we encountered in the beginning of the movie.

The story however has nothing interesting. I loved the end though - I expected a cheesy love story end, but got something different. Good job!

loading replies

I just watched this. Wow what a fantastic ride from beginning to end! An Adventure for the whole family! Lots of fun, lots of jokes and laughs!! I think I giggled like a little girl a few times... lol! I say top notch performances from Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black & Karen Gillan....this was a well cast movie. I Loved Rhys Darby as Nigel! The comedy/direction in this flick reminds me of Walk Hard, and Bad Teacher which both were terrifically done by Jake Kasdan! (Also Orange County vibes as well.) Writer from Community, Spider-Man: Homecoming, and Lego Batman Movie, Chris McKenna does an amazing job rebooting/re-imagining Jumanji. Bravo! 10 out of 10!

loading replies

Sony cast the Rock and Kevin Hart just because they can. I really hope they don't turn Jumanji into a buddy movie.
