Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson smolders in Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle!

The latest version of Jumanji, released December 20, is a thrill ride of action and comedy. Stars Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black and Karen Gillan have tremendous chemistry, making this a must-see movie. You will be pulled along with these characters into the exotic world of Jumanji, a game of life and death. 


When four stereotypical high school students are sent to detention, the nerdy Spencer finds an old video game and begins an experience that will change their lives. Each student is transported as a character from the game into Jumanji’s dangerous jungle. Facing their fears and finding new courage, they learn to work together to help save Jumanji. 


Dwayne Johnson, in one of his best performances, leads a cast that brings his and his costars' characters to life. Johnson’s “smoldering look,” a key movie reference, makes him a true box-office hit. He is complimented by two comedians, Kevin Hart and Jack Black, providing the audience with many great laughs. Karen Gillan, the only female lead, plays her role to perfection. The movie also stars upcoming actors Alex Wolff, Ser’Darius Blain, Madison Iseman and Morgan Turner as the young teenagers. 

A few holes in the storyline early in the movie are a drawback, but they are overcome by the action and adventure. In addition, the production created high quality special effects which makes it entertaining to watch.  


Overall "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle" is a funny, action-filled movie full of cool fights, interesting characters and good family fun. It’s definitely a movie worth seeing this winter!
