Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book Reviews

Brian Lowry

Top Critic IconTop Critic

A full-throttled, technically superb adventure - with more bite than most Disney live-action fare - that offers some winning moments but, ultimately, isn't as involving as it needs to be.

Kipling purists may not cotton to Disney's new live-action version of The Jungle Book, but it's hard to think of anyone else who won't be enchanted.

Scott Lee is an unexpectedly appealing hero, partly because he's never indulged, and his dialogue is kept to a minimum.

A chaste teen-age love story with an ecological sensibility and some terrific scenery.

The narrative shifts from romance to adventure the way Cheetah used to hop from foot to foot, but Sommers nevertheless delivers a bully family picture.

The special effects are convincing, the performances are forthright, and the direction, by Stephen Sommers, recalls his energetic, lighthearted "The Adventures of Huck Finn" (1993).

Everything epic that Legends of the Fall strains so hard to achieve, Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book accomplishes niftily.
