Absolutely loved it. My 5-year-old daughter and I have watched it a dozen or more times. It just doesn't get old. Not to mention who doesn't love Dwayne Johnson!!

If you liked the first one (which had an atrocious rotten tomato score, btw), this will be a pretty great movie. If you don't like the teenagers, they're pretty much non-existent for the movie.

Este film logra cumplir lo basico de una cinta de Aventura y comedia que es entretener pero a mi forma de ver logra utilizar la palabra Jumanji como mercadeo pera lograr una mejor aceptación, no le hace honor al clásico de 1995, es funcional pero realmente no sera nada realmente interesante.

Thoroughly enjoyed this flick! Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, and Kevin Hart...how can you not laugh? Most remakes can't quite live up to the original, but with a more modern spin on it, I felt it was easy to dive into this adventure film. I laughed throughout the movie and was surprised at some of the scenes. Fun, silly and filled with action!

Film is good but there are so many dumb scenes like when Spencer dies...

A vast improvement from Robin William's previous adventure; "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle" might suffer from generic character development, but it manages to fix and overcome all the problems that the original film had to face. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and the rest of the cast shine in their respective roles, making us believe that these are kids trapped in a world where anything can kill them. Definitely a film that will make doubters believers.

Pretty dumb which is sad because Jack Black, The Rock, and Nick Jonas all in one place?? Yes please

A surprise hit for many I think. A star studded cast doesn`t always mean success. This movie was definitely a success. All of the comedy hits the right notes. The pacing is well done and there IS A JONAS BROTHER! Like OMG

The film is very funny. Kevin hart and Dwayne Johnson naturally bounce off each other, they were definitely the best pair to use for this film. using Dwayne Johnson to portray a nerd that is shocked to be in that body is quite funny because in real like obviously he is used to having that body. When they change their get the complete opposite kind of character to what they are before the game.

Way better then I expected, not as good as the old one, but then that's a classic.

The smart twist on how the game works brings the story into the modern age whilst, at the same time, giving the film-makers enough room to create something different that builds upon the original rather than attempting to remake it (that probably wouldn't have gone so well). And whilst it doesn't quite have the charm of the original and you won't find yourselves as invested in the characters, the cast is undeniably fantastic and have great chemistry, helping to make it a fun, entertaining and light-hearted adventure that finds that sweet balance between action and comedy. I can't see why this wouldn't be an enjoyable watch for most people.

The chemistry between the cast was just the foundation of what was great about the movie. The general idea of the movie was original and did not even attempt to imitate the success of the first film. It felt fresh, original and I absolutely loved it. All of the characters had their own story arcs and they were relatable and actions understandable. The comedy was hysterical and the film was a well-rounded good film. The biggest problem for me would be the ending, the ending seemed very rushed and a little bland. Throughout the entire movie it seemed like there were no consequences, though the characters were given lives it only provided us a small bit of suspense for that specific moment, however, because the characters were given 3 lives, and a dues ex machina of being able to give someone else a life was introduced, the stakes never felt real. Though I ignored it throughout the movie, thinking that the end would provide us with some big consequences...that never happened. The characters became friends and changed their perspective of the world, nothing else has happened, they still live their everyday lives and it felt a little bit weak. If consequences, such as Alex's death were added to the film (or Jumanji NOT being able to time travel) , we would be able to see some real consequences that aren't too heavy for the light-hearted film, but still be able to deliver an interesting and suspenseful movie.

Good fun.

Four high school teens are transported into Jumanji, a video game. They now have new bodies, all complete with unique strengths and weaknesses. They also have a mission - retrieve a previous gem from an evil warlord and return it to the statue it came from. Unless they do this, they'll never leave the game.

Good fun. Fairly original - real life people being transported into a video game, and ending up as video game characters with abilities and weaknesses and a certain number of lives. The video game setting works well and the plot is quite seamlessly developed from this premise.

The disparities between the real lives of the people and their in-game characters makes for some very interesting and often amusing scenes. Very funny at times.

Good action scenes and CGI too.

Original idea,great cast,good CGI and fun throughout the journey. The jokes can get annoying (like the Instagram Bullsh--) but this is still a great film all in all. Rating:84%

Actually a fun watch. Get it on Blu-Ray to enjoy it multiple times. If you go back and watch Jumanji and Zanthura after your first viewing of this you will appreciate it more.

One of the few films that gets better as you continue watching whilst getting inebriated. This film somehow knows how drunk your getting and gets better and better. Top film.
