Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

Four teenagers find themselves inside the game "Jumanji". They will fight with a rhinoceros, black Mambo, and every step will be watched by an endless series of traps and puzzles. To complete the game and stay alive, they will have to transform into game characters: the timid and shy Spencer is transformed into a brave and strong researcher, big Fridge — in short, fashionista and beauty Bethany — to the Professor, as clumsy and awkward Mar is a fearless and nimble Amazon. Friends have to get used to this completely new and unusual roles and to find their way home.

Who would neither said, but 2010-ies in the world cinema became the time when the fashion for creating remakes and canadaplace for the revival of the films of yesteryear. A lot of people applies to this is wary that, in General, is not surprising. Because completed some cases turn out worse than the original paintings. There are exception "a Person with a scar," Brian De Palma "king Kong" by Peter Jackson "Mechanic" with Jason Stethemom — the following picture, where applied high-quality graphic effects, which up to the end of the 20th century was a luxury.

With regard to film "Jumanji", which 1995, was directed by Joe Johnstone, an adaptation of the eponymous book by Chris van Olsburg gained a lot of popularity and fame US and their limits. Viewers and critics praised the magnificent performance of the main actors, well-done special effects and musical accompaniment. Box office tapes also were impressive: from budget 65 million dollars the film grossed in rentals 4 times more. So that the continuation pattern has been predetermined, but the company "Tristar" is not hurry to return to "Jumanji", and in 2014, when the passed away starring Robin Williams, hopes for the reemergence of painting and were vague...

But the producers of the film company "Sony pictures", bought the rights to pictures finally decided to move the story in the present, and the main characters of the film with the prefix "jungle" were teenagers-high school students — Alex, Fridge, Bethany and Martha. Once they found a computer game called "Jumanji" and, not suspecting anything, he decided to play and moved to the world of the game. Each got a personal character, and the team had the difficult mission — save the world Jumanji from death.

Behind the wheel of a 90-million project stood Jake Kasdan, in the record which are present in mostly Comedy movies and TV shows ("Zero effect," "bad teacher", "Country eccentrics"). Director's handwriting Kasdan added "welcome to the jungle" a lot of funny gags and funny moments. But and the other fronts the picture is not lame. And the presence of references to the original film is also in a plus.

You should give credit to the creators of "Call of the jungle" — the main action of the film they made in the game, why not enough first film. The audience had the opportunity to dip in the environment of the game and enjoy the adventure that was waiting for characters to path goals. The actors (Dwayne Johnson, Karen Gillan, Jack black, Kevin HART) showed a good game.

So I can safely recommend "Jumanji: Call of the jungle" to view — and today's youth, and older people the film will be like it!

Who needs new stories when you can take the old? The feeling that the heads of movie makers launched the virus and they lost the passion to find original stories. At this time went to the movie "Jumanji".

What is this deductible one time attracted fans? Excellent casting, where, of course, stood out Robin Williams; kripotou idea with a game where every move led to unimaginable events, it's very realistic and makes the characters open up with different angles; touching the relations of the heroes that take care of each friend change each other.

Nothing like welcome to the jungle don't wait. Of the actors can be identified unless Jack black: in General, it well played the role of a teenage girl, absorbed in her persona. Dwayne Johnson, who got the main character, not have shown nothing new. The rest are forgotten immediately after the credits. Although for fans of nick Jonas, best known for many shows I was not looking, his appearance the frame will probably become the whole event.

The idea of the Jumanji game left, but not in its original form. Now it is a computer game with levels, maps, and boss — again greetings from the 90s. the Characters are not remain our reality, and fall in drawn and by the way, the graphics of this world, even worse than in the first film. Animal movements too fast, unnatural, muzzle badly drawn, Yes, and environment, in General, is so conventional that it does not cause delight, despite that the action takes place in the jungle.

The characters themselves change very little, awkward to interact with each other, as if it superrescue movie. Often sound quite childish jokes, so not quite clear what the audience of the film. I would say children and students and that's the rating of this film claims that students and older. But to attract an audience, just that was Jumanji Call of the jungle, to put it mildly, is not enough...

I advise you to watch this Comedy, if not want to strain and you like to look funny kintz with the aforementioned stars.

Spencer — a typical nerd whose large stock of knowledge coexists with shyness, exacerbated by natural judeochristian, yeah and relationships with the opposite sex does not exactly succeed.

Fridge — the typical high school athlete: with passes the flanks and passes, things are much better than with applied Sciences. However, for such cases exists as best friend Spencer, who would write free of charge for you work until you're doing more interesting things.

In Bethany, the audience will see a typical representative of the generation of IPhones and high-speed Internet, which is not is your daily life without the new-fangled gadgets and social networks.

What same applies to newly minted Martha, then it is a typical difficult teenager who wants to chat with peers, and excessive candor complicates her position.

So is it that the way all four teenagers are crossed in the principal's office. Everyone was guilty, but the punishment will be shared for all. Sorting old books in the basement, our heroes find an old game console and decide to have some fun running the game on dusty cartridge. And all OK if not one "but": this game is "Jumanji" that draws adolescents in the virtual world...

* * * * * *

When the network began to leak out the first details regarding the upcoming filming of the sequel to "Jumanji", it has caused a mixed reaction: some eagerly looking forward to the details, while others again complaining about a crisis of ideas in Hollywood. That for I was very intrigued and looking forward to the opportunity to watch a movie on the big screen. A full understanding of what is this film, is not possible without comparisons the first part. For convenience, I took myself to sravnenii both film a number of conditional criteria. So, let's start.

1) Characters. Alan Parrish of the original paintings — the character is complicated. First, the guy suffers oppression on the local bullies. Starting the party in the "Jumanji", it becomes the hostage of games on a good twenty-six years. The joy of returning soon replaced by the bitterness of irrevocable loss. What to say, the hero of Robin Williams were bright and deep, whose personal tragedy dilutes things happening on screen buffoonery. It is a pity that the same cannot be said about the rest of the characters. Here Sarah, she's friend Alan. Here Judy and Peter, they are orphans. And is all that we know about these persanazhey.

The Quartet of continue at first appear stereotypical students, but all changes when they fall in game world where our four tries on on itself the images of selected characters. Spencer was a charismatic muscular Jock, Fridge turned into thin scout with a huge backpack behind back and misanthrope Mar — battle in fascinating beauty, and Bethany here... but no, nothing to say nothing will, should own all to see. Willy-nilly all have to adapt to new circumstances, struggling not so much different aggressive animals, but its complexes and phobias.

Thus in this category wins a new movie.

2) Consistency what is happening. In translated the main characters are not have a reason to play, because rules "Jumanji" not words above the return in the past, nor any other reward for successful completion of the party. So what is the meaning and then throw the dice if every next move multiplies the misery and may be the last for a grief-players?

In"the Jungle", our heroes are trapped inside the game so that they simply do not have choice but reach the winning (or not much) end. Even under the team work failed rational basis: each of the characters has a unique set of as advantages, and disadvantages, and only to cooperate to achieve success. So that once again wins the second "Jumanji".

3) Style. What do look very severe great in film, 1995, as the process of penetration of Board games in our world. With each stroke of the line between Jumanji and reality is erased, all stronger now roam the streets, elephants and rhinos, and from under the floor begins to break through the predatory vines. In continued the protagonists most of the time directly in the heart of Jumanji, which look like the most ordinary jungle, not familiar in many other movies.

What same as the called imitation of video games, not as many as wish. Yes, each character has a counter of lives and a set of characteristics that are called via the context menu and non-player characters repeat one and the same phrase, but this is clearly not enough. Whether the authors a little more imagination, the result was more spectacular and so the point goes to the original.

4) Intrigue. In the first movie game in"Jumanji" was, to put it mildly, dangerous. Than longer drills party, the more izoschrennee became nastolka, throws our heroes huge mosquitoes, wild animals, spiders and other filth. And forbid God to be place Alan!

Special mention deserves the main antagonist of hunter van pelt. With the appearance and virtually the very end it becomes a full participant in the operation, making adjustments to the without the boring gameplay. It is also worth noting that hunter father Alan played by one and the same actor this is no accident. In fact van the pelt is a more severe version of the parent: it also demands that the protagonist has finally become a real man, boldly looking in the face of fear, not forget to shoot Alan.

The problem is the main villain in HP, not so much the otutstvie any allegories, but that it's just boring spelled out, concise, and with the characters can be found under the end not render serious influence on outcome. With other hazards, things are no better. In our main popadantsy have to deal with the local fauna, and with bandits, which is no chance against the muscle of Dwayne Johnson. The presence of each character has a stock of lives almost reduces to no sense of risk. And because this category has a strong lead the first part.

Result. In something the sequel surpasses the original, but something inferior. Let it can boast a dashingly twisted plot, but some of the jokes are frankly vulgar, it doesn't make the movie bad. In the end, the sequel is positioning itself as a lightweight teen Comedy, and this is good.

In addition, there is in  the"Jungle" that makes it with the original. For all of these jokes, rhymes and fights hiding simple and in same time clear to all moral promises. The film teaches you to overcome your fears, complexes and diffidence in himself; teaches that it is important who you're inside, but not outside; that only the collective person conveys a sense of fully; finally, learn to forgive old grievances, hinting that never later all correct.
