Jungle Book 2 is a pretty decent movie. It doesn't compare to the original but it does pay some respect to it. I gave a lot of credit to Jungle Book 2 because making a sequel to that classic movie is anything but easy.
The plot is surprisingly good and makes sense. It introduces problems to Mowgli as he misses his life in the jungle. Meanwhile Shere Khan is lurking in the jungle, looking for revenge.
I really don't think that a sequel to the masterpiece Jungle Book could of been better than this movie. In other words this movie was doomed from the start but it didn't fail.
I can't really describe what is bad about Jungle Book 2. What I can say is that it was missing key elements that made the original so great. This movie did have some good scenes and did keep me interested.
Overall I actually enjoyed this movie and my advice to future viewers is to not expect something as good as the original. The 5.2 rating is out of place for Jungle Book 2, it deserves better.
My rating: 6.9/10
