Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle – Review

Jumanji is a remake (or a sequel?) of the original Jumanji movie starring Robin Williams and Kirsten Dunst from 1995. The difference is that, in the original movie, the main characters play the Jumanji board game, whereas in the new one, we’ve advanced enough to switch to a video game. At the beginning of the movie, we follow four high school students Fridge, Spencer, Bethany, and Martha who, after bad behavior, get detention for which they have to remove staples from discarded magazines in an old storage area. But Spencer discovers a console containing the Jumanji video game and convinces the rest of the gang to join him and play. Once everyone has chosen their character in the game, the game draws them all inside where they face huge challenges in order to get back to reality.

    I really was very, very skeptical for this film when I first heard about it. But the positive reviews the movie has been generating has really surprised me, to say the least! Great post! 😀😀

  2. The original Jumanji was filmed in a town less than 40 minutes from my home! The Shoe factory sign is there. The Barber guy was a true Barber, displayed proudly in his window is a special Jumanji certificate. I’m not sure I am ready for the new one. Thank you for the insight and review!! 😁

    I’m glad you thought it was fun too! So many reviews just bash it comparing it to the first one. Yeah! They are different the first one is a very good story with some funny parts. This is more to me about the carefree fun and humor!
