Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Kevin Hart and Karen Gillan star in this continuation of the classic 1995 adventure fantasy film starring Robin Williams.

Four teenagers are sucked into Jumanji's world - pitted against rhinos, black mambas and an endless variety of jungle traps and puzzles. To survive, they'll play as characters from the game: meek Spencer becomes a brave explorer (Dwayne Johnson); hulky jock Fridge becomes a tiny genius (Kevin Hart); It-girl Bethany becomes a bookworm professor (Jack Black); and unathletic Martha becomes an amazonian warrior (Karen Gillan). To beat the game and return to the real world with their lives, they'll have to start seeing things in an entirely different way. .

Fun!

Fun and entertaining. Predictable ending. Jack Black and The Rock are good value

Enjoyable.

It's enjoyable with its humour, charisma and dull entertainment.

Clunky tween flick

I found this film a struggle. Everyone overacted and the storyline was predictable. I went with a 9 year old and a 10 year old and neither really loved it. If you don't have a kid who is desperate to see it my advice is to give it a miss.

The movie has amusingly broad performances; good, bloodless scares ... and self-empowering life lessons too bland to be specious. You could do far worse.

It’s like watching the lamest Indiana Jones sequel ever imagined, minus Indiana Jones.

The action’s passable and Gillan makes a decent fist of an underwritten character. Otherwise, this Jumanji makeover’s a losing game.

Mostly great fun, with Jack Black outrageously entertaining as a teenage girl. But we need to talk about Karen. As Ruby Roundhouse, Gillan is stuck in less clothes than one of Rihanna's backing dancers.

It’s a likeable film which borrows liberally from everything and everyone, and if it’s put together by numbers, well, then it is done capably enough.

A rare, long-gestating follow-up that actually improves on the original.

The film's main appeal is in watching familiar actors pretend to be ordinary kids grappling with their new selves.

Insane amounts of fun and yet never feels like you need to switch off to enjoy it…
