In Jumanji: The Next Level, the gang is back but the game has changed. As they return to rescue one of their own, the players will have to brave parts unknown from arid deserts to snowy mountains, to escape the world's most dangerous game.
The enigmatic Mr. Roarke makes the secret dreams of his lucky guests come true at a luxurious but remote tropical resort. But when the fantasies turn into nightmares, the guests have to solve the island's mystery in order to escape with their lives.
The film is described as being a tonal mix of Westworld meets The Cabin in the Woods, centering on a group of contest winners who arrive at an island hotel to live out their dreams, only to find themselves trapped in nightmare scenarios. See more »
For whatever reason, I seen to be able to tolerate these low budget suckfests that Blumhouse keeps putting out. Truth or Dare, Ma, and now this. They're aren't good, but I seem to be able to find the fun in them. In this movie, five strangers arrive at Fantasy Island to have their wishes fulfilled. Each guest is then set up for something amazing. As things start to go wrong, I was still interested--I wanted to see where it was all going. The part that I think will bother people is act III, when you expect to get explanations for what's been going on. It's not very satisfying and makes no sense. I'm sure many will use the term "lazy" to describe what the writers came up with. Personally, I had low expectations and kind of knew what I was getting into, so I guess I got what I deserved. I can't really complain about that. But as far as recommendations go, this is only partially watchable. Even less coherent than Truth or Dare.
