MOVIE REVIEW:Jumanji
Auhtor:

   

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

when I was a child back at the early 90s, I watched this movie and I
got pretty scared at the lion scene, but a few years later, I'm not
scared of that chilling scene anymore. I'm always enjoyed it.

so, a boy named Alan Parrish finds this game called Jumanji and gets
sucked into the jungle until 26 years later two children named Judy and
Peter Shepard free him from the game. now they (along with Sarah
Whittle, Alan's friend from the past few years) have to avoid the
dangers that lie within the game.

I gotta say that this movie has been my all-time favorite childhood
movie ever since. the cast are very supporting, the visuals are great,
and the scenes with Van Pelt, the villain in the movie, were very
chilling.

This movie is excellent and its a must-see movie for kids, teens and
adults.

Rating: 10/10

Jumanji is directed by Joe Johnston and based on Chris Van Allsburg's
short story of the same name. It stars Robin Williams, Bonnie Hunt,
Kirsten Dunst, Bradley Pierce and Jonathan Hyde. The story is about a
weird board game that when played unleashes hazards from the jungle
with every throw of the dice. Once you have started playing you have to
finish the game for normality to be resumed.

Simple in plot and coming off as an excuse to show off some impressive
effects-said the critics- Jumanji defied the critics of the time to
become a box office winner and a family favourite. Enough of a
favourite to spawn a sequel (Zathura 2005) , an animated TV series and
a board game. In truth the film is reliant on its effects to entertain,
with the cast (all competent and enjoyable) merely lurching from one
perilous throw of the dice to another. But to call the film shallow is
wrong and ignorant. There's flecks of bad parenting, peer pressure,
grief and bullying, while the impact of a missing child on one town is
a noteworthy addition to the story line. You wonder if those critics
actually paid attention during their free viewings?.

Yes it's berserker family fun, but it's not without worth in the
writing too. Besides which, for the action set pieces and the
laughs-they alone mean the film has its merits. 7/10

Contrarily to what the greatly lamented Mr Robin Williams affirms in
his commentary, Jonathan Hyde had already appeared in quite a few
movies (at least 42!) before «Jumanji» — sometimes as the leading man,
such as in «The Best of Everything» (2000), «Woman Obsessed» (1989) and
«Bijoutiers du clair de lune, Les» (1988), aka «Heaven Fell That Night»
(UK) or «The Night Heaven Fell» (USA). As good as his comments are, I
deplore the fact that Mr Heston did not seem to bother to check his
sources before uttering his remarks. And so, generally speaking, they
seem VERY improvised — with many repetitions, generalizations (such as
: «Brit actors tend to be better than American ones (!)», etc. And,
alas, not too many precise FACTS or behind-the-scenes details. This
being said with sincerity and honesty, we're going to miss you, dear Mr
Robin Williams : may you rest in peace.
