  • By presenting the characters as psychological abstractions, McLean makes the story feel universal. He wants you to ask whether you'd be capable of surviving an experience like this.

  • This is a solid movie about man versus nature.

  • More time could have been spent developing the bond between the men, but ultimately this is quite gripping: a weepie bromance. You don't see one of those every day.

  • [Director Greg] McLean does largely succeed here in telling a story that's just as thrilling as its source material.

  • Despite its many obvious flaws ... Yossi's story has enough weight on its own to render Jungle a moderately compelling survival flick.

    October 20, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • ... feels more like a sequence of box-ticking perils than a genuine survival story, and the female characters (sexy traveller, sexy indigenous woman) are painfully two-dimensional.

  • The changing dynamics of their friendship - especially Jackson's impressive portrayal of a physically depleted adventurer whose polished demeanour gradually unravels - give Jungle's second act a particularly vibrant hum of tension...

  • Daniel Radcliffe is precisely the presence who can make a film like Jungle work, and the film largely succeeds by being carried on his shoulders.

    Though flawed and downright disturbing, it's extremely amazing and superbly exciting! A true thrilling adventure in the jungle, led by one of Daniel Radcliffe's most amazing performances!

    Well-done survival movie that's based on a true story and it fairly accurately told. That makes this a compelling watch.

    Jungle is certainly not my worst film of 2017, but I think it might just be the most disappointing. I'm a *massive* fan of Greg McLean, and the trailer had me proper on board with Jungle. Unfortunately, the end result was something capable of capturing my interest only once, and for no longer than a couple of minutes.

    Radcliffe is up to the task of furthering himself from the long shadow of his Hogwarts past in this real life tale of a European Westerner looking for something more than the standard paths of his assigned life, only to find himself lost in the jungle in a bit of tragic parental karmic fate. Alas, the story does little though to delve into his psyche other than the adolescent urge to break free limiting our possible responses to the lead character's angst. Nonetheless, a decent survival tale howbeit with few unforeseen twists and turns.
