Trivia

Like Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017), this is heading into theaters at the same time as a Star Wars movie. Welcome to the Jungle came out a week after Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi (2017), and this film came out a week before Star Wars: Episode IX - The Rise of Skywalker (2019). See more »

Goofs

When they are thrown from the plane early on in the film, Bravestone clearly lands on his front. He is the first character focused on immediately afterwards, yet is sits up, with no transition from his front to back at any point. See more »

Level up.
8 December 2019 | by Pjtaylor-96-138044See all my reviews

Even though its central concept seems ever-so-slightly more strained this time, 'Jumanji: The Next Level (2019)' is about as good as its predecessor. In fact, it's sometimes even better. Basically, the flick is just fun. The crowd-pleasing body-swapping is amped up to eleven, shaking things up just enough so that they feel fresh. The main actors continue to properly impress in their chameleon-like roles, joined by a few extra treats that perform far better than you'd perhaps expect. Indeed, these new players are probably its biggest asset; a couple of them thoroughly perforate the entire experience despite only having a rather small amount of screen-time. The picture is often funny - though, never hilarious - and is oddly endearing, to boot. It isn't particularly deep or, even, memorable but it doesn't need to be. It's a good time at the movies; what more do you need? Obviously some better theming and, perhaps, a tad of nuance wouldn't go amiss, but it's just not that kind of film really and that's perfectly fine. Even if it doesn't impact you as much as some of the year's best, it'll certainly make you smile and keep you entertained for a couple of hours. Besides, its inciting incident is driven purely by character and it even manages to squeeze some genuine emotional connection, via a well-drawn dynamic between DeVito and Glover, into its otherwise otherworldly proceedings. Its acting is also deceptively simple but decidedly fantastic, fully immersing you in the idea that these major stars are actually four teenagers and two old men. Basically, it's not as simple as you might think. 7/10
