Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle Reviews
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.
