Welcome to the best review of “Jumanji,” on the web.
“Jumanji,” is a name that is trending all over Twitter. It’s also a name that was popular way before Twitter even existed. The original “Jumanji,” was a movie starring Robin Williams that was released in 1995. The plot is basically the same, a group of people turn into video-game characters trapped inside of a game. The movie is also rated PG-13.
So how does “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017),” differentiate itself from its predecessor?
The key is in it’s cast of actors.
“Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle,” has a blockbuster list of very talented and funny actors. None funnier than the critically acclaimed Kevin Hart. Kevin Hart (as Fridge the jock) adds a flavor to this movie that adults and kids can both enjoy. His lighthearted humor is easily digestible by adults, and understandable by kids. Kevin Hart alone makes “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle,” the perfect movie for a family night; One where kids and adults can enjoy equally. He also share great levels of chemistry with another huge A-list actor, Dwayne Johnson, also know as The Rock.
The Rock and Kevin Hart has played in another movie together titled, Central Intelligence. They developed a chemistry together that surely carried over to “Jumanji.” Dwayne Johnson has a knack for adding action and excitement to his movies. “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle,” was no difference. His character (Spencer the nerd) brings a mixture of adventure as well as humor to this movie in unique ways.
When you have Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart together in a movie and then you add in a sprinkle of Jack Black, you simply have a masterpiece. Jack Black (as Bethany) adds another dimension to this movie. His stellar acting and lightheartedness helps tie in the pace of the movie. There’s many more actors that are worth a mention. You have the beautiful Karen Gillan as Martha, Nick Jonas as Alex, Rhys Darby as Nigel, and many more.
