Jumanji has a rich history and lore that make it so good learn. From the locations to the creatures, theres lots to keep an eye out for. You feel each level gets harder and is unique from each other. The characters new abilities was a nice touch and allowed for more comedy moments and new fight scene scenarios. Even the new enemies were interesting and have their own little part to play in the Jumanji lore.
A full on adventure that is full of laughs and entertains throughout. It gave us more character develop from the original cast and gave us new ones that made us laugh. Most of the characters I felt invested in and it was exciting to see what would happen to them.
Great visuals with good backdrops and interesting scenery. You definitely felty that this was the next level as it looked harder and had more depth into the Jumanji lore. The creatures looked fearsome and all unique, having their own style of attack and habitat.
All the main cast did so well to convince us that they had different characters playing them. I never got confused who was who and most of the comedy landed with easy. it was perfect, but it was hilarious and I can’t wait to see more of this franchise. Even the new runners are a great addition to the cast, Awkwafina played Spencer very well and fitted in with the big personalities.
