My Thoughts

I give Jumanji: The Next Level a B+.

I am sad to say I haven’t seen the first one but was looking forward to seeing this one.  I heard a lot of good things about this film and I definitely had a blast watching it.  It’s a film full of action, adventure, and comedy.  Watching some of my favorite actors on screen be hilarious was an awesome escape from everyday life.

There are many things I loved about this film. But what stood out the most (for me),  I loved when the characters swapped bodies within the game.  It was hilarious watching Jack Black be feminine and Dwayne Johnson playing an old man.  They matched their counterparts manerisms to a T.  Even Kevin Hart’s character. How he mimicked Danny Glover’s characters voice was hilarious.  I was rolling on the floor laughing within the first five minutes or so of the film.

Catch Jumanji: The Next Level out on Blu-ray, DVD, & Digital March 17th!
