Critic Reviews for The Jungle Book 2
John Goodman's Baloo admits, 'King Louie? He split!' Before the third defibrillation of 'Bare Necessities,' you and your kids might too.
More development and nuance in Karl Geurs' script would have made a big difference.
Wait for it to come out on video, it'll baby sit a four-year-old. Anybody else is gonna be bored by it.
That scratching sound you hear isn't Baloo the bear rubbing against a tree, it's Disney scraping the bottom of the sequel barrel with a follow-up that has none of the charm or creativity of the original.
[Blu-ray Review] A minor work from the Mouse House, but Disney enthusiasts will still want to pick up this high-definition package for the stupendous picture and lossless audio upgrade. They know who they are, and for them this Blu-ray comes recommended.
Audience Reviews for The Jungle Book 2
it totally not like the first film.
Perhaps I'm in the minority in thinking/saying this, but I think Disney rocks at making sequels to their all-time classics, and this is definitely one of the better ones! Familiar tunes abound, and it's a lot of fun to watch Mowgli being torn on whether he wants to go back to the jungle full time or stay with his fellow humans, and the ending couldn't have been better - nice solution to indecisiveness! A lot of reviewers said the voices are a lot different....if they hadn't said so, I wouldn't have known...sure can't tell!
Although a nice conclusion for the characters, this is a very short and embarassing attempt at a sequel.
