Awful
20 August 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I saw Jungle Boy by chance, and also that I am a sucker for adventure-fantasy movies. But I found it an awful movie with few if any redeeming qualities. The scenery lacks lushness, while the effects are slapdash and lack finesse. At best the soundtrack is forgettable, at worst it's generic and not very original-sounding. The script is very cheesy, all the humorous parts fall flat due to over-the-top delivery or that the writing is just plain bad. The story is predictable, unexciting and also quite rushed as well. It is also unoriginal, having a mix of The Jungle Book, George of the Jungle and Tarzan, except never once on the level of those entertaining stories, having no real energy or fun. You don't care an ounce for the characters, you've seen them all before and in more likable fashion. The acting is terrible, the lead is uncharismatic and the animals are annoying rather than colourful or interesting.

Overall, an awful movie and not recommended. 1/10 Bethany Cox
