Jumanji: The Next Level Review - A bit more character and a bit more heart provides for much improvement and variety
12 December 2019 | by subhajit_12See all my reviews

There was not much to expect from Jumanji: The Next Level. And frankly there isn't much more happening than the last time. However, it is the kind of treatment they went for this time.

Karen Gillan gets a different character briefly and justifies it. Jack Black too gets a different character than before. But it is the new "old" characters which they added that works smoothly (with "grease"). How they react and try to understand, takes up the majority of the runtime. That helps Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart to showcase and play with their characters. And all this is thought out so well that it is outright hilarious. Sure it was repetitive but writing and enactment is done so well that every time it landed into laughs. Everyone submerged into their respective characters very well.

Action sequences were decent enough to keep you at the edge of your seat. The plot hadn't much but could have delved just a little deeper into two in-game characters than it did, which you'll know if and when you see.

Other than that, it expands slightly more into the world building; you may or may not remember it later but you'll surely enjoy watching it. It definitely is a fun time at the theatre with your friends and/or family.

However the nostalgia element that was till now missing in these reboot/sequel (s) is hinted at the end. So now I am curious to see how they handle the next obvious sequel, given how well they handled the new elements in this movie.
