In a brand-new Jumanji adventure, four high-school kids discover an old video-game console and are drawn into the game's jungle setting, literally becoming the adult avatars they chose. What they discover is that you don't just play Jumanji--you must survive it. To beat the game and return to the real world, they must go on the most dangerous adventure of their lives, discover what Alan Parrish left 20 years ago, and change the way they think about themselves --or they'll be stuck in the game forever, to be played by others without break.Written by
Thirty-five years before this film's release, Colin Hanks' father, Tom Hanks, starred in the TV movie Mazes and Monsters (1982), where Hanks played a young man with a group of friends who play a board game which dangerously draws them towards the line between fantasy and reality. See more »
In the first scene in which we see "Fridge" his necklace (displaying the number "94") inexplicably changes from being worn wrong-side out to being worn right-side out. See more »
It's good. I had no idea what to expect in all honest. I am not huge fans of other movies by these actors, but this really worked. You could see the great chemistry between them all and it paid off.
What I liked: I enjoyed how it didn't dither about at the beginning and got right into the action. Jack Black especially was brilliant and hilarious! All the actors/actresses were great but Jack Black stood out. Good mix of action and comedy throughout. I was on the edge of my seat (metaphorically) wanting them to escape the game.
Negatives: not many to be honest, couple of scenes were slightly cringe, but not off putting. Same logic goes for a couple of scenes which felt dragged out.
I think people need to forget about this being a remake of a classic film and treat it as a separate movie altogether. If you start comparing the 2 that's when it goes wrong.
Ps.. Karen Gillan. Marry me please?
Worth watching and will be going cinema for 2nd instalment.
