What seems to be a boring jungle tour turns into a fight for survival when three siblings stumble into a hidden temple. Now, their knowledge and their wits are put to the test as they have to complete a series of obstacles and outsmart the dreaded temple guards in order to escape the temple alive.
I'am an unabashed fan of the game show, and to this day, I will never tire of it, no matter how many times I see each episode, it's just too good of a game show, balancing both mind and body into the mix for an exciting adventure that's never the same twice. While I was waiting for some episodes to come on DVD (I'm using various video websites to satisfy my cravings) to last forever in my future family, I heard about this movie coming soon. I was a little skeptical how the creators would handle it all in a movie, but they pulled it off nicely. The premise is very much compatible with the format of the show and I much enjoyed not only the return of Kirk Fogg and Olmec (voiced again by Dee Bradley Baker!) but several other homages as well that I won't reveal, you have to see it for yourself. It's not perfect, the irresponsible parent cliché, some implausibilities (a kid who can understand monkey language being one), and and preposterousness (the native people of Olmec's temple speaking English than some native language), but the good far outweighs the bad. I do hope they included episodes of the show when it comes out on DVD. Even if they didn't I'm not hesitating to grab it!
