A very warm story, clean enough for the whole family, all ages.
21 June 2005 | by (Florida, USA) – See all my reviews

12yo Jamie Williams was the perfect actor choice for 9yo Mowgli, the Jungle Boy. Besides being a talented actor he is lovely appearing and looked the part of someone who may have been raised by wolves.

All supporting adult actors performed their associative roles well, without stealing the scenes and without resorting to ghetto-speak or being vulgar in any way. So I say this movie is a family-safe event that will allow a 'time-out' from day-to-day rituals for all ages of children and accompanying adults.

Each exotic animal had its own breathtaking scene where their individual grace and beauty could be observed. Close-ups of sweet Mowgli's face when he calls birds, monkeys, cats, wolves or bears were very clear and added some gentle depth to a little boy who was the product of animal care taking.

My family enjoyed this movie.

Clearly a story this simple is not meant for those persons who have left the bigger part of their childhood essence behind; however, it is highly recommended to anyone who still enjoys tender child fare: clean, wholesome, gentle and enjoyable.
