This pandemic is slowly taking a toll on us humans, but one thing we can still count on is Kevin Hart to make us laugh during such dark times.
Jumanji: The Next Level is a great sequel that delivers adventure, laughs, and warmth. From beginning to end its a fantastic ride to hop on for the second time, enjoying it as much as one did the first time back in 2017 – a film for the entire family to get lost in for 2 hours during this ”quarantine.”
Here we get to once again get inside the video game that is JUMANJI, modernizing it since the original was a board game, now it is a video game. As the gang returns to rescue one of their friends who went back in, a glitch in the game has managed to create a slight error causing this time one hell of a roller coaster for the old and new players.
I loved it, as much as I did the first one. It is an enjoyable movie that offers so much to the viewer, a fun adventure with stunning visuals of desserts, jungles, and snowy mountains + hilarious dialogues, great sound effects, friendship, love, and action. The cast is equally phenomenal this time, delivering amazing impressions of one another.
You’ll be satisfied, no doubt about it. 7/10
Back together – reuniting the cast
+ much more
Director; Jake Kasdan
1h 59 minutes
Swedish premiere; December 22end
An adventurous ride that will you have you laugh from beginning to end, a blasting and thrillingly roller coaster that has everything one seeks in movies of these genres, and a little more.
It has been twenty-two years since Jumanji came out, a true classic ‘till this day, and it was a blast to finally once again be able to be a part of the new adventure. This time, not only welcoming new faces but also a more modern twist to the story and plot.
Four teens, while stuck in detention discovers an old tv-game and get sucked into the jungle where the game plays out and become the avatars they chose. They must now work together to break the curse of Jumanji; the only way for the game to come to an end, and so they can return back home.
It is humor all the way out, I laughed several times throughout, the chemistry between the cast truly shines in every scene, and you will have a joy watching them all together in the beautiful place and scenery that is the jungle.
Don’t walk into the theater expecting it to be a remake of the original, you’ll only start comparing them, and it ain’t what this movie is.
For two hours, put the old version to the side, and enjoy this film with a pair of brand new eyes and an open heart and mind. It won’t be the Jumanji you remember and loved so much, but it won’t disappoint you. 7/10
