Movie Review (Jumanji)
January 26, 2018 7:42pm CST
Has anyone seen the new Jumanji with Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Heart. The movie is hilarious. It is completely different than the Robin Williams version and much better. I could watch it over and over and will be purchasing when it comes out on dvd. Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle was casted perfectly. There are a couple of crude references that could have been left out, but other than that was great entertainment. I have never been a Jack Black fan, but loved his performance in this movie. Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart, once again, revealed their talent to the public. I have never heard of Karen Gillan, but this movie made me a fan. In the midst of the humor, there are many life lessons to learn: teamwork, loyalty, friendship, courage, and the dangers of greed.

I had very mixed feelings for this movie. It doesn't follow the source material (it should be a cursed board game instead of a video game) but on the other hand, it was updated for today's audience (who play more video games rather than board games). I still prefer the original though.
Yes the appeal is to the modern generation. Even though I am from the board game era, I still prefer this one. In my opinion, it was just a better story line and performances. Then again, some of my opinion could be based in the fact that I am NOT a Robin Williams fan.
