Very interesting film. Was caught on the premise when seeing the trailer but unsure as to what the outcome would be for the showing. As it turns out, it was a very good film.
The thing I enjoyed most about the film is the fact that it doesn't shy away from being a super-sized-cliche;
Jumanji is a game about animals, we hardly see a few in this new film
This movie was really funny, witty to a point, and it was lots of fun. The cast are comical legends! Enjoyed every last bit.
This is an entirely new movie, so do not compare it to the last one- which was great. Jumanji the Board game "comes up with a newer version of itself" to fit the times, and so does this movie. The actors do a great job of poking fun at themselves, keeping it light but very intense. It is a funny, kind of inspiring movie full of "personal growth", which does get a little "teen angsty" at times, but is worth the watch. Underrated.
I watched it 2 more times and laughed every time! Great writing, directing and acting. Loved that each character got to "walk in someone else's shoes".
