Remember a time when action stars ruled the screens, stupid, yet iconic one liners, explosions and fun? Well Welcome To The Jungle, manages to modernize this formula, which soley is, a formula and becomes a big massive heap of fun. With plenty of small nods to action stars of the era, while adding the early hipster, teen comedy that was popular at the time. Beck, a hired debt collector and fucker uper of people, with an aspiration to become a chef, decides he wants out of the bad life for good. His mobster boss, offers him one final job, to retrieve his son from the brazilian jungle, in trade for Becks freedom. However when Beck is thrust into the middle of a rebel uprising, a vicious power hungry baron and the fact that Travis, his bosses son, isnt making his life easy. Beck soon finds himself on a treasure hunt and involved in a whole world of shit. Its basic stuff plot wise, but a film like this, isnt made for conviluted and brain testing podiums of entertainment. In fact Welcome To The Jungle offers up a surprising treat. A film full of whit, enough action and fight choreography, although on no same page as Tony Ja, to shake as many whips and sticks at and it has a delightful cast. The Rock, Sean William Scott, Christopher Walkin, Ewan Bremner and not to mention Rosarrio Dawson. The chops are there to boot and its the characters that steal the show here. Yes they are paper thin and over simplified but its the actors ability to charm us with the characters that guides us through this thrill ride and leaves us satisfied by the end. Its by no means perfect, it crosses lines between race, gender, guns and all sorts of hot topics, including, homosexuality. Its forgivable as its never done to excess but its present. Also i cant help but feel there is a slightly different, more fuller experience out there, one maybe another director could approach in the future to remake. None the less, is fun, full of laughs, lots of action and a good slice of entertainment. No ways a masterpiece but for its place in film, a well worth sunday afternoon flick.
