12-years old Jamie, a bunch of animals and a beautiful nature surrounding - then what do you get?
16 February 2004 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

The answer to the question above is of course this outstanding movie.

I could be boasting about the great animals, trained to ... well, whatever they do in this movie. I would be bragging about how great mr Williams is in the role as Mowgli. I should proudly present to you the wonderful nature and magnificant surrounding. But I don't have to. All I have to do is to tell you to watch the movie.

Also, it's much better than it's forerunner. And that's all I had to say about that.
