While I enjoyed the first one a lot, and recommend it to anyone who is seeking a good time, as well as an interesting premise for a heist movie. I had less fun with this second outing. Part of the reason is that the movie tended to take itself more seriously than the first, so when the fun magic bits came around, it was almost like whiplash. However, when those moments did happen, I found myself enjoying the movie! Partially because it reminded me of what I enjoyed of the first installment. Speaking of the first one, Amy Adams did not reprise her role, so there is an empty slot in the horseman lineup. The new female addition starts off as annoying, but evens out towards the end. That cannot be said about Woody Harrilson's performance as the twin to his original character, Merrit McKinney! Every time he was on screen I groaned, as the character his beyond annoying, but unfortunately he is important to the plot so he is there to stay. I wanted to enjoy this movie because of how much I enjoyed the first. I wanted to walk out of this movie saying I had a good time, and there are those who are saying that. However, the annoying characters, and constant shift in tone were enough to make me say that I didn't.
The Jungle Book has some of the best CGI I have ever seen in a movie. However, this movie is more than just a pretty picture, as it has great characters to keep the audience engaged in the story at hand. The lead child actor does a fantastic job at putting convincing you that he is actually talking to the CG characters. On top of that, the rest of the cast is near perfect in their roles; especially Idris Elba as Shere Khan, who is far more intimidating than his animated counterpart. The only complaint I really have is that the bit with King Louie, while greatly entertaining (Christopher Walkin as a talking and singing monkey, that alone is an amazing idea), it does drag for a while. Other than that, The Jungle Book is an entertaining, intense, and down right fantastic!
While the acting is amazing, the pacing is slow beyond comprehension! Often times it becomes straight up boring, which is unfortunate because it's clear the movie wants to be something more. In the end, the movie is essentially about an elderly Sherlock Holmes taking care of bees.
Despite from the ending being rather underwhelming, Revelation is greatly enjoyable. The jokes are lacking, but the story is actually pretty enjoyable.
Aside from being hilarious, the story is well told, and Deadpool becomes a sympathetic character. That being said the movie does slow down in bits, while it still remains entertaining. If you are offended by excessive language, over the top violence, and basically anything, then avoid this movie!
