Who'd have thought such an unnecessary and belated sequel could not only be good... but also be better than the original? "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle" benefits from a playful and creative storyline, sharp direction and an excellent cast who have a grand time hamming it up for the camera. It's fast, funny and filled with plenty of eye-popping action set-pieces that will delight the whole family.TedStixon
Nice idea to update it from a board game in the 90s film to a video game with its associated rules for the millennial generation. The game rules used are simple enough that parents who grew up with 80s video games will understand the references too, so a good family film for both parents and children.
The Rock was good value for being able to do action, comedy and a bit of character development too.
