Two years ago my family and I watched Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle after hearing all of the praise surrounding it. When we watched the movie we were pleasantly surprised by how fun and entertaining the film turned out being. The sequel was announced and we couldn’t wait to see it.
Thanks to AMC Theatres for giving me a free coupon code to watch any rentable movie I wanted on demand because my family and I jumped at the chance to see Jumanji: The Next Level and boy did it not disappoint.
I’m going to say this outright, I liked this film more than the first one. There were some really fun character moments, I liked that it was basically the same as Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle except with harder situations to overcome and more characters, and Danny Glover and Danny Devito’s additions to the movie was absolute perfection. Kevin Hart, Dwayne Johnson, Karen Gillan, and Jack Black unsurprisingly knocked it out of the park but let’s give a shoutout to Awkwafina.
She killed it in this film and now I’m really excited that she will be in Shang-Chi and the Master of the Ten Rings. She’s really funny and I never knew that until now. That makes her obviously perfect for a Marvel movie in which the actors usually need to know how to deliver a punchline.
All in all, I’ll keep this review curt to avoid spoilers but I will say this, I loved it. I loved the first one and this one managed to put a huge smile on my face too which is all I wanted.
(And guess what, even though this is a bit of a spoiler in itself? There’s going to be a sequel!)
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a marvelous day.
