    Looks better than expected, reminds me of the Rundown.

    Wish Hart wasn't in it

    Looks like an effective fun family movie. I do wonder about the Rock and Kevin Hart though. They don't seem like the right picks for family entertainment. They need to tone down the vulgarity for this movie to be the hit that I think it can be.

    That being said, I'm not that interested. :lmao

    That was so intense, like I can't even.

    Not a fan of the Rock ... or Kevin Hart ... unfortunately. Though the trailer had a few gags I got a laugh out of. Worrisome though, since they might be the only gags in the movie that'll appeal to me :defeat

    this is utter garbage.

    its like they didn't even cared about the original movie.

    from board game to video game :giogio

    from op animals to human mercs? :giogio

    from game characters jumping to the real world to players doing the exact opposite :giogio

    fucking disgusting

    I'll admit there were a few times the trailer made me laugh. But still I don't know. I get the feeling it is not going to be that good.

    Well they went cartoon Jumanji root. Instead of animals coming out to real world , you go into Jumanji world.
    Though avatar concept is new.
    Jumanji can't be Jumanji without kid protagonists though. That is my biggest problem here.

    Karen Gillan isn't playing a blue robot for once. And she looks hot. So there is that.

    This movie was actually pretty funny, Kevin Hart tends to save movies from themselves.

    The fact that you don't have the actual title here triggers me though.

    Good continuity btw. Rewatching the first one, the game ends up on a beach in 1995. In the second movie, In 1996, the kid's dad finds it there buries in sand.

    You mean the short picture book from 1981.

    or

    its sequel Zathura.

    I am not even joking, in actual continuity, Zathura is the sequel to Jumanji.

    In the children's book, one of the brothers literally throws a jumanji board game in the trash.

    The brothers find Jumanji in the park, think its a dumb kids game. THey take it home and they find another board which pops out from beneath the Jumanji game, called Zathura.

    Its not a bad movie, not a great one. Basically another teen action movie with a cast that's just a watered and dumbed down versions of the Breakfast Club. Some funny jokes and decent if overly CG action scenes. Not exactly unpredictable or memorable but a decent way to spend an evening.

    The main reason I can see people being disappointed is that it was barely anything like the original Jumanji. The only reason its a sequel/reboot or whatever is brand loyalty.

    I bet this feels as close to the original Jumanji as the 2016 horror film Beyond the Gates. Which was a really cool film btw. Jumanji meets Lucio Fulci's Gates of Hell trilogy or something.


    Not seen this yet, but I'll watch it someday. I'm a big fan of the original Jumanji after all.

    I liked Jumanji. It’s dumb asf. But it gets nostalgia points. It’s also pretty funny at times. The characters are likable. The actors are likable. It isn’t too long. And Karen Gillan looked great.

    Probably a blu ray buy down the line. :thumbs

    Good business is likely too. 200m domestic seems like a possibility to me.

    This shit isn't Jumanji. It is a shitty comedy with a virtual reality setting.

    Also, the Rock is a great guy irl, but 99% of his movies are garbage. This will be no different.
