Not massively impressed with this one, yes it had amazing visuals and competent acting, but that is to somewhat be expected with a movie that has a 100M+ budget and thousands of very talented people working on it.

"Welcome to the Jungle" did a massive injustice to 1995 film, because the core idea seemed have been made up on a whim. I always thought the first film was cool because the game was like some kind of an alternate reality which was supposed to be REAL, like a parallel world which was done brilliantly because even an eight-year-old could grasp that concept. This was expressed with the antagonist Van Pelt who was a turn-of-the-century hunter and made the film exciting... What did we get with this film, an N64 game? What a joke. It's also worth noting that Welcome to the Jungle, does not follow the concept Jumanji as Alan (Robin Williams) had aged 26 before coming back to our world.

Did I mention Antagonist? Yes Van Pelt appeared in the film but added nothing to it. Unbelievable, so I would sum this up as an action-packed blockbuster... with no wit, humour or villain. Which is the whole point of the Jumanji game.

Where could they take Jumanji in a future film? Give it online capabilities? Damn.

There is also a fun irony that maybe the producers didn't realise; game developers have to loop a lot of characters (those of you who have seen will understand) and keep plots minimalistic in order to fit it onto a disk. So are we saying that Jumanji has a memory limit? Or can we admit this branch of the franchise needs to be quashed?
