It has some genuine thrills and laughs - plus Kevin Hart & Awkwafina are excellent - but it's simply not movie theater quality.

Jumanji: The Next Level didn't really bring anything new to the table besides new characters that don't fit into the story. I'd leave the kiddos at home for this one.

Don't bother. Play an old-fashioned board game instead.

In the end, the performers' high energy feels weirdly thankless; they shift their voices and their posture and their personalities, and they're all still just subsumed into blockbuster noise.

Little more than a carbon copy of the last installment, with The Rock delivering an ill-conceived performance.
December 13, 2019
Everything about it feels less like an upgrade and more like a retread. It's not so much an exciting new take on the previous film as it is an overpriced DLC pack.
December 13, 2019
The wild chases and hordes of stampeding ostriches keep pulling us away from hang-out time with our bantering avatars.

Jumanji: The Next Level doesn't go to the next level and repeats the same plot and jokes that made Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle a worthy sequel to the 1995 classic. [Full Review in Spanish]

Plays like an irritating video game cut scene you want to hit the X button to skip.

This game and franchise was fun while it lasted, and barring some major creative juices being pumped into its system, it deserves to be boxed up and stuck in the attic.
December 12, 2019
While I suppose an if-it's-not-broke-don't-fix-it mindset could be applied to the script, the new Jumanji feels too much like a recycled family-friendly comedy with little to no novelty.
December 12, 2019
It's neither an upgrade nor an update -- just more of the same and less of what made the movie's predecessor charmingly clever.
December 12, 2019
Johnson, Hart, Black and Gillan remain charming, but whatever novelty existed in the refurbished premise has already worn away.
December 12, 2019
If the Jumanji masterminds insist on all this artificial sweetening, can the next level at least be Candy Crush?

Remember when Scorsese recently derided blockbusters for having no connection to actual human psychology? He was talking about this kind of film.

More is not always better. [Full review in Spanish]
December 12, 2019
It's a retread in the worst way, outright repeating gags, situations and development in an attempt to capture the highlights from the previous (much more entertaining) film.
December 12, 2019
When did Jack Black stop being funny? He's now just a tiresome version of Oscar the Grouch.
December 12, 2019
Hart and Johnson raise a few laughs. That's about it.
December 12, 2019
The action sequences are lifeless; the lessons valid but arguably stale; and the trimmings, mere bloat.
