    When I was 10 years old, I remember watching this movie on VHS tape at home. Also, I liked this movie as a love story like Tarzan and Jane. Now, I already have a DVD widescreen for an upgrade to watch.

    Ever since I saw this movie as a child, it has been one of my favorites. I feel like this a very underrated and relatively unknown film. While the plot has the basic premise of the boy-raised-by-animals story, it is unique enough to keep the viewers interested and guessing. It is a lovable children's movie with lots of live animals and plenty of age appropriate action, while still being able to offer adults a good time as well. The scenery is absolutely gorgeous, the costumes are gorgeous, the actors are well casted. I love the subtle use of Hindi in the script to add to the authenticity of the setting. For me, this will always be one of my favorite movies.

    No. Just no. I guess if the book didn't exist this wouldn't be too bad as a film but since the book exists and it is a classic piece of literature, this film is not worth seeing for those who enjoy the book.

    So they did a remake on the jungle book I remember watching this all the time and the way I would describe this movie there was a lot of violence fights it was all so what some scary but good action and the graphics were good to this movie

    Underrated. Sadly this one seems almost forgotten. Fun performances particularly from Elwes. Very entertaining

    While this film may not be so faithful to the original novel, it overall makes up for a clever Tarzan like story. I guess you could argue that I grew up with this movie before getting to know the animated classic, but the reason I kinda prefer this over the new overrated 2016 film is because they at least used actual animals and they were well acted in the movie by their emotions and body languages, and even the human actors do a pretty good job with roles especially for Jason Scott Lee who was quite popular at the time alongside Sam Neil. The action scenes are good, and the settings are fantastic, I'd personally say Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book is worth a watch.

    The 1994 version of the Jungle Book is a solid, yet very troublesome experiment. I liked that it was its own thing and different than the other adaptations, it serves well as a historical drama and is quite charming at times, but it doesn't serve well as an adventure film at all and although the use of real animals was solid, they were still underutilized and that entire subplot felt rushed and disappointing plus the acting isn't the greatest here.
