I'm not surprised that Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle is as bad as it is, I am just disappointed.
December 26, 2017
Welcome to the Jungle is precisely as bankrupt as it seems. Maybe Jungle + Game + Big Movie Star seemed like all the formula that was necessary, and this movie just couldn't be bothered to look at the goofball whimsy that made the original special.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle isn't half-bad, but it isn't for me.

The cast does their very best to keep it fun, but the lack of imagination weights the film down. [Full Review in Spanish]

A nice-looking movie isn't a good movie. Jumanji focused on story, character development, and a strong sense of imagination while Welcome to the Jungle focused more on gags, clichéd moments, and visual effects.

There are funny moments throughout Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, but the sexual humor is constant and the narrative tension is nonexistent.

Expanding the world of a concept is great! But the story that Welcome to the Jungle is expanded for is yet another teen-self-actualization movie, the kind of thing we already received this year.

This is the central problem of "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle": it's meant to be more modernized, but it's mostly cliched and antiquated.

As loud and soulless a family movie as there's been in years.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5

Sorry, nostalgia junkies. "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle," the sequel to the popular 1995 movie about a mystical board game, rolls snake eyes.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
December 22, 2017
Kasdan's film could've just been any generic survivalist action-comedy; slapping the board game onto the title is nothing but shameless branding.

For all the charm of the main cast, it's borderline impossible to keep that energy up for two whole hours.

The scary animals are still here, mind you... But they are only included as minor obstacles in the background since the central characters are often too busy squabbling among themselves to notice anything going on around them.

... has not a hint of the charm of which in 1995 starred Robin Williams. [Full review in Spanish]
December 29, 2017
An intermittently amusing fantasy...welcome to the Jungle will appeal primarily to adolescent viewers.

But as for the rest of the adventure, this tape seems a parody of video games, a medium that has not been very successful on the big screen. [Full Review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 6.5/10
December 22, 2017
A film about games that doesn't understand them, with lowest-common-denominator gags in place of inventive humor or sly observations.
December 20, 2017
You won't feel much, you probably won't forget you're sitting in a theater watching a group of people play a game, but it's fun, and funny.
December 21, 2017
Aside from a handful of genuinely funny, can't-help-but-laugh moments, though, this trip to the jungle is anything but welcome.
Full Review | Original Score: C

A fun lark, but despite its humour and occasional sweetness it still feels disposable.
