Jumanji: The Next Level
Director: Jake Kasdan
Writers: Jake Kasdan, Jeff Pinkner, Scott Rosenburg
Stars: Dwayne Johnson, Karen Gillan, Jack Black, Kevin Hart
When Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017) was released, I made the conscientious choice to take a miss. In my eyes, the original Jumanji (1995) is an untouchable classic, with no reboot or sequel necessary.
Recently this year, however, I decided to give it the benefit of the doubt and found myself pleasantly surprised. While incomparable to the original, it was a perfectly fun film in its own right with a likable cast and enough enjoyable set pieces to keep the adventure moving.
