Jumanji: The Next Level Movie Review
Jumanji: The Next Level is once again directed by Jake Kasdan and stars the Rock, Jack black Kevin Hart’s, Keren Gillian Aquafina, Danny de Vito and Danny Glover.
Jumanji: The Next Level plot:
This time around Spencer played by Alex Wolff disappears into Jumanji and everyone has to go inside to try to find him. But the game has changed in the avatars, that they were the last time they played are completely switched around now. Which gives an opportunity for all the actors inside your mind you to play against type.
The new movie Vs Last one!
The last movie was actually not too bad. I mean it was fine. I’d never really felt like watching it again, but it was nowhere near as bad as it looked or as some people suspected it would be.
And this sequel was fast-tracked. That movie came out two years ago. This is a giant movie with a lot of special effects works in huge actors. It’s a really big production. Since this movie to be coming out so quickly.
It’s clear they were trying to capitalize on that success and sometimes that can be a really bad sign. But I would say this film is just about as good as the last one and since I mildly enjoyed that movie and found it to be a pleasant time at the movies that I’m sure families will have a good time watching. I think this movie is going to do the same thing for people.
Why you might have a good time watching this movie?
It’s a well-paced movie. Something is always happening. They’re always in the middle of some dangerous activity or some crazy set that’s moving and turning. There’s a really good sequence with a bunch of wooden bridges, that are swiveling around and an army of baboons that are coming to attack them and they have to jump between the bridges. It reminded me of like a Mario game which I’m pretty sure is what they were trying to pay homage too.
In fact, one of the better parts of the movie is that they do make fun of a lot of video game tropes and poke fun at video games. The way certain characters talk the way non-player characters interact with people.
And how you can’t get the information you need out of somebody because they are non-player character and they’re just gonna keep repeating the same sentences over and over again no matter how hard you try.
if you’re a gamer those types of things are gonna be fine for you or they might start to grate on your nerves because it’s obvious. A lot of the jokes in the movie can feel very obvious and very in your face. There’s not a lot of thinking behind it but that it’s not exactly. What you would expect?
And if I’m like this I would imagine and if you go into your mind to the next level thinking too hard about everything it’s on-screen, you might start laughing.
In particular, an event that happens toward the end of the movie involving a horse. If you really think about exactly what is occurring. It’s really funny.
What I like most about this movie.
What I like most about this movie was of the actors got to play against type. That was something about the first film. That was fun too. This time around, in particular, Kevin Hart I think really really was the funniest part of the movie.
Because as a comedian he’s usually very loud and very boisterous and he’s just a big presence. But Danny Glover is controlling his avatar and when you think of Danny Glover you’re usually thinking of someone who’s very cool and calm. So Kevin Hart as a now senior citizen Danny Glover is rather genius.
What I didn’t like about this movie.
What didn’t always work for me was the Rock as Danny de Vito. What’s on paper is like a funny of god damn thing you could possibly imagine. I just don’t know if he sold it as well as he could have.
He fell slightly outside of his comfort zone and not in a positive way. I think he started to get into it partway through the movie, but at first, he seemed a little uncomfortable with it.
And the idea of these two Danny’s Glover and de Vito being inside these much younger bodies discovering and remembering what it used to feel like when they were in better shape. That’s really clever. Those aspects of the movie I thought were really fun. I don’t think it’s that surprising to say that I didn’t really care about any of the characters or the storyline which that’s kind of a failure I guess.
But I just don’t expect much out of these movies. I just want to be entertained and at its core. Jumanji: The Next Level is exactly what I thought it would be. It’s more of the same and if you liked that the first time around, I guess the second time around or the third time around. Yeah then you’re probably like your mind to the next level and I’m gonna give Jumanji: The Next Level a B-minus.
There are far worse as you can see this holiday season although a lot of the movies this December have been very good this is been a good holiday season the very good awards season I’ve seen.
I’ve seen a lot of really good films over the past few months and if you just want to go with your families to a film I’m sure this one will be totally fine for you guys. Guys, Thanks as always for reading my review. See you soon with another movie review.
