Of all the versions of The Jungle Book, Mowgli sure is the runt of the pack.

If you can relate to the gravitas that Serkis lends to a much-loved jungle tale, Mowgli: Legend Of The Jungle is the film for you.
March 10, 2020
Unlike Jon Favreau's insipid 2016 live-action retread... this live-action adaptation of Rudyard Kipling's classic about a feral Indian boy reared by wolves teems with flesh, blood, and mud, conveying a true sense of danger and adventure.

A visually impressive live-action film.

There's nothing charming and whimsical about being a child lost in the animal kingdom. And there's certainly no singing.

The movie is inspiring thanks to its philosophical lessons about the human nature. [Full Review in Spanish]
March 19, 2019
The film is too gory for young viewers and likely to leave children frightened and upset and it isn't a very pleasant viewing experience for adults either.

Mowgli has little more to offer besides technical prowess. [Full Review in Spanish]

The motion capture is beautiful and expressive and is a reason why I will gladly rewatch this Netflix original and share it with others

The characters don't do anything interesting and Mowgli is a jungle boy who stays the same through the movie. I immediately forgot about the movie as soon as I finished watching it, which is a real shame

It's not exactly an original take on Rudyard Kipling's stories any more than the Disney version was, but it's a refreshing change for anyone hungry for a change of pace from Disney's monopoly.
January 19, 2019
A frustratingly grim take on the material that feels unfinished and under-realized.

The jungle vistas are stunning and you often forget that what you're seeing is nearly entirely CGI. But the sweeping jungle takes over the plot a little too easily as the story jumps around, never really settling on what it wants to be.
January 8, 2019
Stripped of comedy and song, the film sits in a dour netherworld - too dark and scary for young viewers, too simplistic for adults.
January 7, 2019
It made me vow to never take any kids to visit a jungle not created by Disney.
January 3, 2019
This is a fairly tame and accessible version of the popular adventure tale, just nowhere near as good as it should have been.
January 2, 2019
Mowgli: King of the Jungle doesn't impart the sort of excitement you might hope from the newest entry, but it does have a resonance that many of its predecessors didn't.
December 21, 2018
The film feels painfully incomplete, from its frequently told story to its weak visuals.
December 17, 2018
Gritty and edgy, this hybrid live-action/digitized version is an exciting adventure for older children and tweens.
December 14, 2018
Sure it looks good, but it feels off its game most of the time.
