JUMANJI: WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE

Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle movie poster

Janet's TAKE: #JumanjiWelcomeToTheJungle is a fun sequel with plenty of laughs courtesy of Kevin Hart and Jack Black. B

It's not quite
the surprise (or as fresh) as the original but there is enough going on to keep the audience engaged. I was glad to see Jack Back toned down, resulting in a terrific performance.

Synopsis:
In the brand new adventure Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, the tables are turned as four teenagers in detention are sucked into the world of Jumanji.  When they discover an old video game console with a game they’ve never heard of, they are immediately thrust into the game’s jungle setting, into the bodies of their avatars, played by Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Kevin Hart, and Karen Gillan.  What they discover is that you don’t just play Jumanji –Jumanji plays you.  They’ll have to go on the most dangerous adventure of their lives, or they’ll be stuck in the game forever.  -Columbia Pictures


Rating: PG-13 for adventure action, suggestive content and some language.
Running Time: 111 minutes
