"Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle" Movie Review #2
Jumanji seemed trapped between a rock and a hard place this Christmas. Fighting against the nostalgia of the Robin Williams original and the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi - Jumanji seemed doomed to fail. However, Jumanji conquered that level with relative ease. How?
In short, incredible casting choices and acting performances. The chemistry between Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart is undeniable and Jack Black is arguably the BEST he's even been as teenage girl 'Bethany'. Add that to a simple story concept and humor that'll keep you grinning from beginning to end and you've got a great film. So just sit back, relax, and be welcomed to the jungle, where they've got fun and games.
