Movie Info

Join fan favorites Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt for the adventure of a lifetime on Disney's JUNGLE CRUISE, a rollicking thrill-ride down the Amazon with wisecracking skipper Frank Wolff and intrepid researcher Dr. Lily Houghton. Lily travels from London, England to the Amazon jungle and enlists Frank's questionable services to guide her downriver on La Quila--his ramshackle-but-charming boat. Lily is determined to uncover an ancient tree with unparalleled healing abilities--possessing the power to change the future of medicine. Thrust on this epic quest together, the unlikely duo encounters innumerable dangers and supernatural forces, all lurking in the deceptive beauty of the lush rainforest. But as the secrets of the lost tree unfold, the stakes reach even higher for Lily and Frank and their fate--and mankind's--hangs in the balance.

    Disney film that is enough to watch with the family and friends, but offers little return value. Between all the remakes of animated classics, Disney lacks a focus on new and fresh ideas. Jungle Cruise may not be the step in the right direction but it demonstrates they are still willing to take a risk. Blunt is well cast and she is rarely miscast, but it's Johnson who feels out of his element. The film is a mess of special effects mixed together with Pirates of the Caribbean. It's an odd choice the filmmaker and writers made for this mega budgeted film. I just don't understand why they make these films so massive and risk not turning a profit. This should've been a more character focused film with a splash of big adventure. I have heard they are planning a sequel, but I thought they closed this off well enough to avoid a sequel.

    A great adventure film and while it is reminiscent of Indiana Jones and the Mummy, it has some original twists and the humor makes the film. Blunt and Johnson are great and Plemmons looks like he is seventh heaven chewing up the scenery!. Well Directed and written. Enjoyable from beginning to end. 09-06-2021

    Disney turned a theme park ride that mostly involved sitting into a billion-dollar supernatural adventure franchise, so why not try another swing at reshaping its existing park properties into would-be blockbuster tentpoles? Jungle Cruise owes a lot to the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, and actually owes a little too much for its own good. For the first half of the movie, it coasts on the charms of stars Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt and some light-footed visual misadventures. Then the second half turn involves a significant personal revelation, and that's where the movie felt like it was being folded and crushed into form to closely resemble the Pirates franchise. It gets quite convoluted and littered with lackluster villains, too many and too stock to ever establish as intriguing or memorable (one of them is a man made of honey, so that's a thing). I found myself also pulling away in the second half because of the inevitable romance. Their screwball combative banter between Johnson and Blunt gave me some smiles and entertainment and then, as they warm to one another, it sadly dissipated, as did my interest. The comedy is really labored at points. Johnson keeps referring to Blunt as "Pants" because she's a woman and she wears pants in the twentieth century. It was not funny the first time and it's not funny or endearing after the 80th rendition. The supernatural elements and curses feel extraneous and tacked on. With the Pirates films, at least the good ones, there are a lot of plot elements they need to keep in the air and you assume they're be able to land them as needed. The competing character goals were so well established and developed in those movies and served as an anchor even amid the chaos of plot complications and double and triple crosses. With Jungle Cruise, it feels like a lot of effort but also a lot of dropped or mishandled story and thematic elements. This feels more creatively by committee and the heavily green screen action is harder to fully immerse with. As a wacky adventure serial, there may be enough to keep a viewer casually entertained, but Jungle Cruise feels too beholden to the Pirates formula without bringing anything exciting or fresh on its own imagination merits.

    My God did this start off horribly, but once you get in the groove it becomes surprisingly enjoyable. Let me get the bad things out of the way first. I think the first jungle cruise scene was filmed at Disneyland. I've been on that ride several times and it literally felt as staged as the ride. I know that was kinda the point, but this is supposedly set in the Amazon jungle. The river cruise set in Anaconda looked more realistic. A quick check on IMDB showed two filming locations: Atlanta Georgia (London I presume), and Kaua'i, Hawaii (South America?). There's a scene with an "uncanny valley" CGI leopard that is too cartoonish. Disney did such a better job with The Jungle Book. And this was ILM. I mean WTF? This is same SFX company that did the OG Jurassic Park? And the backdrops -- they go from being clearly "green screen" scenes to actually filmed scenes. The editing at times was horrible. There's a scene on that "jungle cruise" were the camera literally has a bad zoom effect from a background tree to a character. Another scene has a completely fake a looking lens flare that adds nothing to the scene. BUT ... after I stopped caring about the fine details of filmmaking and got more immersed, I was pleasantly entertained (warts and all). First, a Disney movie has an instrumental version of Metallica's Nothing Else Matters in the sountrack. How cool is that? There's a cute scene with an old motion picture camera. Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt are charismatic and do the most with their characters and dialogue. For once the Rock doesn't bare his muscles. Jesse Plemmons hams it up nicely as the slippery over-the-top German baddie. There's this awesome scene where he gleefully talks to a bee in a German accent. I have an even better idea for how this could've gone (if it wasn't a Disney film). Fake out the audience as Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez did with From Dusk to Dawn and once they are captured by the Amazon cannibalistic tribe, it turns into a Cannibal Holocaust horror flick. Now THAT would be a movie.
