Absolutely the worst and sloppiest kids' film ever made!
26 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is a complete and utter embarrassment to the Jungle Book. First off, the actor who plays Mowgli is horrible. Every line he says comes out sarcastically. It sounds as if he is trying to make fun of the script (quite pitiful, would you say?)! For example, when Bagheera asks Mowgli if he's alright, he replies by saying, "scared, but alive!" I mean, how corny can you get? I know this is supposed to be a kid's movie, but hey, there's a limit! Towards the middle of the film, it started to seem as if the writers had lost interest in the movie and decided to wrap it up somehow. Also, the set design was really sad. What kind of a jungle merges with hilltops? The lagoon was really fake as well. It looked like an ordinary pond in your average backyard. And also, how are all the animals friendly with each other? Aren't the wolves supposed to eat them all up? To add on, there are several goofs in this movie - one of them being that when Shere Khan is trapped in the circle of fire, there is a giant gap visible where he can get through. And when he is 'forced' to agree with being exiled from the jungle, Mowgli moves aside and Shere Khan jumps right over the flames. Why couldn't he just do that from the opposite side of the circle? Was Mowgli supposed to be big enough to surround the entire circle of flames? This just adds on to my earlier point of the writers wrapping up the script. Also, Mowgli never wears any sort of make-up in the entire movie. Even when he's been running all throughout the forest, he looks as if he just got out of bed. In all, this film was by far the most pathetic kid's movie I have ever seen. I don't know what the makers were thinking.
