The Jungle Book (2016) (2016) Movie Summary
Directed by Jon Favreau (Iron Man), based on Rudyard Kipling’s timeless stories and inspired by Disney’s classic animated film, The Jungle Book is an all-new live-action epic adventure about Mowgli (newcomer Neel Sethi), a man-cub who’s been raised by a family of wolves. But Mowgli finds he’s no longer welcome in the jungle when fearsome tiger Shere Khan (voice of Idris Elba), who bears the scars of Man, promises to eliminate what he sees as a threat. Urged to abandon the only home he’s ever known, Mowgli embarks on a captivating journey of self-discovery, guided by panther-turned-stern-mentor Bagheera (voice of Ben Kingsley) and the free-spirited bear Baloo (voice of Bill Murray). Along the way, Mowgli encounters jungle creatures who don’t exactly have his best interests at heart, including Kaa (voice of Scarlett Johansson), a python whose seductive voice and gaze hypnotizes the man-cub, and the smooth-talking King Louie (voice of Christopher Walken), who tries to coerce Mowgli into giving up the secret to the elusive and deadly red flower: fire.

Way too scary to be a great film based on the animated versionMy family and I were looking forward to seeing this movie, we watched it the other day and boy it turned out to not be a great family film like we were excepting. The storyline is a letdown and not enough like the classic cartoon. The tone was not very happy, and the villain, Sherkan appeared near the begging of the film, he was one of the scariest villains to feature in a CGI remake of the classic cartoon. This movie is not magical, fun, or a laugh out loud comedy film like it is trying to be. My sister and mother were very bored like I was and thought it the movie’s tone was way too sad, sinister, and violent. My father thought the tone was not as happy as the animated one, and I agree. I think this movie is way too scary and inappropriate for kids under the age of 13, this movie should’ve earned a rated PG-13 rating for disturbing images, and intense violence. The young child actor in a cloin coff interacting with computer animated animals set in the jungles of India sounds like a great idea, but just doesn’t work. We are all 23 years and older, no young kids in our family, thank god cause this movie is not for kids like I just said! We turned off the movie at the 59 minute mark. We did the very same thing with Ralph Breaks The Internet. The CGI graphics and backgrounds were breathtaking, same with the action and the voice of Baloo the Bear keep the movie from being skin crawling horrible. Bad movie, but not as horrible as Ralph Breaks The Internet. One more thing, I am super glad we didn’t buy the movie, my family and I watched this on Disney + Still do not watch this movie!👎👎😪😨😡🐻🌴.Score: 1/5

Great movie. Well doneWe were worried it might be to scary for our 8 year old, but she enjoyed it. There are some scare tiger scenes and monkey scenes, but we watched her as they were happening and she was okay. I wouldn't recommend for younger kids or kids who hat scared easily, but I really liked the movie..Score: 5/5

GreatThere are pigs, giraffes, zebras, magpies, sharks etc, but the only downside is that this is related to 1. The lion king (2019) 2. Dolittle 3. Dr.Dolittle There are many films like this so not unique but good movie it’s effortful at least..Score: 4/5
AmazingI love it! It is simlier with the 1967 version, the vocie actors are just perfect for the character they play. I wish I was Mowgli, because he can communicate with animals (even though I know those are CGI characters).Score: 5/5

Amazing animation but dreary movieLoved the first version of this movie and was excited to see this version for family movie night with our 11 year old. What a disappointment! There is barely anything uplifting about this movie. Dark scene after dark scene. Everything scary. Not a fun at all. A few weak renditions of musical numbers from the original. Give it a miss and rather seek out the original..Score: 1/5

Simply incredibleWhat a magical experience watching this was for us adults. Granted that little children will have nightmares of the giganticus orangutan chasing them through ancient Indian ruins, but then so will us adults have exactly the same nightmares and sharing is caring. I loved everything about this film. Well done!!! Must watch for all ages, but young ones might need a little tlc during the watching. Xx.Score: 5/5
