Hawaii Mom Blog: Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle Movie Review

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle Movie Review

You know those movie classics that you can watch over and over?  Well, the original 1995 Jumanji starring Robin Williams is mine.  If it's on tv, I will watch it.  If we're searching for a movie to watch, I will suggest it.  I loved the fantasy and adventure of the story as well as all that foreboding drumming.

Fast forward 22 years and we are now being treated to Sony Pictures' Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle.  The sequel brings the audience a new adventure as four teenagers serving detention together get sucked into the Jumanji video game and into the bodies of their chosen avatars, played by Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black, and Karen Gillan.  The players find themselves in a jungle setting complete with lots of bad guys and even badder wild animals.  They figure out that they need to pass each level to complete the game if they want to leave Jumanji and return home.

Jumanji is full of laughs and will keep you entertained throughout the movie.  The video game concept is clever and the action almost non-stop.  The comedic performances of the cast were great and it was hilarious seeing Dwayne Johnson act the role of the nerd, Kevin Hart play a big guy stuck in a little guy, and Jack Black play a self-absorbed teenage girl as they navigate their Jumanji adventure.  My family and I really enjoyed the movie and it was so heartwarming to see my seven year old smiling ear to ear for most of it.

Definitely recommend Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle for the entire family.  The movie is rated PG-13 and now showing in theatres everywhere!
