Jumanji The Next Level's first act is a little slow to start, but once the game gets going, it brings the same level (ha) of fun, laughs, heart and action-adventure as Welcome to the Jungle. More of what you liked the first time, plus new players, new avatars, new abilities, new creatures, new environments and a new quest. It's again pretty cleverly done, and while some of the new players are willfully obtuse in the beginning, which wears a bit thin, mostly the information recaps are handled with humor and efficiency. I thought the last trailer had spoiled way too much, but no, still quite a few surprises. Like its predecessor, it's about growing up, getting older, but now the kids are college age and, true to life, what they'd thought they'd figured out in 12th grade, they realize they hadn't in young adulthood. Life is a series of levels and every time you think you've won, it just sends you to something you're unprepared for. Danny DeVito and Danny Glover play the senior version of this, just as much the seekers in their post-retirement world. And this time, a sequel is teased much more overtly. If they keep making them this fun, I'll keep my appointment to the movie house.

Dwayne and Awkwafina as Danny DeVito is hilarious, same with Kevin Hart as Danny Glover. Made me laugh so hard!
Better movie than the previous one! Enjoy both of them. Great tributes to one of my favorite movies from my childhood, the original Jumanji.

What is the worst possible advice you can give to someone who is making a sequel to a remake of an adventure movie?

Add a grumpy old man - no, wait - add two grumpy old men.

The first one was tedious, but the sequel made the first one look thrilling. The 'bickering old men' got tedious in a hurry; and there just doesn't seem to be an artistic reason for this one to exist, unless you count revenues as art.

Slightly better than part one. Stylish CGI and beautiful exotic environments. Entertaining, adventurous, fun and exciting all the time. And easy. If this was a book, I would have finished reading it at once.

Too late! That was the first thing I did.


In recent years, the terms “Remake” and “Reboot” have become very popular in Hollywood. Much to my annoyance. In most cases, these knockoffs are just a shadow of the original. Not to say abominably bad and horrible to look at. The biggest example of this (for me personally anyway) is the movie “Ghostbusters” from 2016. If Bill Murray was no longer among the living, he would have turned around in his grave. A needless copy without humor and full of recycled ideas. A few years ago when I was told that a remake was being made of the famous film “Jumanji” (with the unparalleled Robin Williams in a leading role) from 1995, I was shocked. And certainly when it turned out that Dwayne Johnson hijacked the leading role. Yet another redundant and ridiculous attempt to imitate a past milestone.

To my surprise, however, “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” turned out to be an exceptionally successful experiment. And that’s because of the unique idea to replace the “Jumanji board game” with an old skool console game where four innocent students are teleported into and where they need to complete a quest while playing a character in this game. It’s the only way to escape the game. Not only was it a funny movie (due to the interactions and personality contradictions between the real youngsters and their avatar in the video game). The concept was also original. Adding video game features such as NPCs, cut scenes, and the fact that each character has a limited number of lives, was a masterful move. It’s not without reason that the film was a real success in the theaters. And the inevitable happened. The sequel “Jumanji: The next level” is a fact.

Unfortunately, as I feared, this new sequel doesn’t take the saga to a new level. To be honest, I thought it was simply an uninspired story that simply tries to take advantage of the previous film’s success. An easy solution to squeeze the last dollars out of a milked-out project. The novelties can be counted on a broken abacus. Not many, in this case. The characters are all still the same. This time supplemented with two old grumpy retirees (Danny DeVito and Danny Glover) who used to be business partners when they owned a thriving restaurant. As with every new level in a video game, the environment in which the adventure takes place is different from the previous level. So you’ll be presented with a sandy location with associated oases. And also, our friends will encounter a completely different fauna on their path.

The most successful aspect of this sequel is the fact that the different characters were initially mixed. That makes for hilarious moments when you see Dwayne Johnson imitating the characteristics of a Dany DeVito. But besides that, there’s nothing innovative to discover in this sequel. It’s a well-known story with a new look. It’s the same as when a new “FIFA Soccer” version is being released on the game market. Graphically it may look a bit sharper and some new players and options have been added. But otherwise, the look and feel are similar and you have trouble discovering the points of improvement. Well, “Jumanji: The Next Level” was entertaining and packed with sometimes masterful CGI. A good alternative to fill a pleasant movie night. But the source from which creative ideas are created is exhausted. Let’s hope they bury the game “Jumanji” in a well-hidden spot once and for all, so nobody can lay their hands on it again. I think we’ve had enough of this.

I really think this would have worked so much better if the kids from the first film had been in new avatars, or it was just a new set of kids in the same avatars.

Too many of the same jokes from the first film and not really the same kind of stakes.

Still worth a watch though, just nowhere near as good as the first.

Was pleasantly suprised and enjoyed the first one……..the second one was more of the same but without the fun and excitement. It's ok but forgettable.

You like this movie if:
* You like to play videogames.
* You liked Game of Thrones. Sandor Clegane is back - same clothes and same much dialogue! Climbing on ice wall etc.; and something is flying (not a dragon this time).

- All jokes are based on body switch humor and how people behave different situations strange to them. And repeat same jokes again two-three times, maybe you didn't get it yet.

From a Point Of View of a Gamer who has played video games on all 7 generations, This has Nothing to do with Video Games! Just leave whatever remains from the OG Jumanji with Robin Williams ALONE and dont ever f@#$ing come back PLEASE.
