Movie Info

The computer-animated creatures brought to life by a board game are fabulous, but on the way from the fanciful childrenŐs book to the screen, the story has become more terrifying for youngsters than exhilarating.

A gloomy special-effects extravaganza filled with grotesque images, generating fear and despair.

Some thrills, but may be too much for little ones.

Like the rest of Johnston's oeuvre, Jumanji puts vivid characters through paces that will quicken any child's pulse.

Groucho Reviews

This smart, scary film, is still a favorite to dust off and take from the "vhs" bin

Blunt Review

All the effects in the world can't disguise the thin plot.

December 8, 2004 Full Review Source: | Comments (3)

Great special effects and exciting adventure stuff. A bit of a slow buildup and unnecessarily dead parents.

July 14, 2003

Unsatisfied with just being cute, this sucker wound up being both fun and clever.

May 5, 2003

A visually impressive and exhilarating adventure that keeps the suspense, thrills and comedy running high through the surprising end and supplies interesting characters with moving plights that keep the audience rooting.

Take away the CGI mayhem and what emerges is a rather touching tale of second chances and innocence prematurely lost.

April 17, 2001 Full Review Source:

Everyone is good here, with Williams taking on the unusual persona of straightman much of the way.

Audience Reviews for Jumanji

Not only the special effects and make-up are atrocious but this excruciating movie also wants us to care about a silly game that has nothing compelling or adventurous about it and whose rules seem ridiculously arbitrary - and it all ends on an awfully sentimental conclusion.

Once again, I'm in last person to see territory. In all fairness I don't nostalgia would ever have been on its side, I wasn't into this kind of film back in 1995 and I'm still not. It hasn't aged that well and I'm not sure it was ever that good in the first place.

Probably the one movie every kid in the 90's had or wanted to see.

"Jumanji has always been one of those films that are just a lot of mindless fun to watch. I have watched this movie more times then I would like to admit. But it is one of my favorites from my childhood. But I still love it as much as an adult then I did as a kid. Robin Williams will always be a huge favorite of mine. Bonnie Hunt is funny and I miss her in movies. The movie is great for all ages to enjoy. So if you get a chance, see it with your kids, or see it by yourself. Either way you can't come from this movie not liking it. I'll probably see it at least a dozen more times before the year is over with lol."

    1. Alan Parrish: Jumanji. A game for those who seek to find a way to leave their world behind. You roll the dice to move your token. Doubles gets another turn. And the first player to reach the end wins.

    1. Alan Parrish: I've seen things you've only seen in your nightmares. Things you can't even imagine; things you can't even see. There are things that haunt you in the night; then something screams, and you hope to god you will not meet the same fate. Afraid? You don't even know what afraid is.
