This is the first film adaptation of Rudyard Kipling's novel "The Jungle Book" to win an Academy Award, which in the case of the 2016 film version, it won the Oscar for Best Visual Effects. There have also been two previous film versions of Kipling's novel that were nominated for Academy Awards, which are Alexander Korda's Jungle Book (1942) and Walt Disney's The Jungle Book (1967).

I doubt I'll ever watch or even remember this movie again because of its lack of emotion/depth/creativity. Really it leaves us with nothing at the end, not even a little bit of warmth. Terrible story line that had me only focus on how beautiful the forest was looking since it failed to deliver neither laughter nor message. Not a single moment of "oh I'm glad I'm watching this movie". It was more like "I just hope the next part will be good" through out the whole movie.
First the acting from main character was so bad he had a same type of face expression every scene. Even the voices from other animals were completely emotionless I could not relate to any of the character's feelings.
Second there was nothing new or unseen in this new jungle book. I did not mind the slightly different story line from the original since I was expecting something more innovative from the start. However, It was the same old "man stuck in a jungle" type of story that anyone could come up with, I feel like the popularity it is able to gain right now is fully due to its graphics.
Most of the movies that do not have a very good plot at least give me a few chuckles on their way. This movie even failed to do that, which is why I felt scammed by the current reviews out here and bothered to actually create an account, make an honest review.
