The board game with a vengeance is back, and this time it’s gone digital.
When a group of detention goers are tasked with the job of clearing up their schools’ basement, they come across a literal game-changer, as they are unexpectedly thrown into the world of Jumanji.
From badass teenagers to full-grown adults, somehow through the magic of this game, a young blonde girl turns into a middle-aged man, as Jack Black takes on the persona of a millennial teenage girl as each kid picks their gaming characters without much thought for the outcome. Which as is evidenced by Black’s awesomely hilarious portrayal of a young teenage girl, makes for great on-screen entertainment.
Rather than trying to restore the original Jumanji, this film pays homage to its predecessor as it keeps the magic of the story, but delivers it to a new audience with a reimagined direction.
The film is crammed with big names, from Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson to Karen Gillan, supplying audience goers with ample googling time, as the actors strut their stuff on the big screen in an adventure that will warm the hearts of viewers both young and old.
