Most of you are familiar with the movie Jumanji. Well most of you may also know that they recreated/made a second one to relate to modern day technology. To be honest I was a little skeptical if they could live up to my “childhood” expectations. The main characters are Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Kevin Hart, and Nick Jonas. Hearing this, I was very excited. I got to relive my Nick Jones crush and there was another Jumanji; who could ask for anything more?

So the movie takes place when the Jumanji board magically turns into a video game. A kid plays it and gets trapped for years. Then when some other kids in detention have to clean a old room, they find the game and continue it. This is very similar to the original.

As you would expect, throughout the game they have to complete levels, and to get back out of Jumanji they have to complete the “quest” or “game”. All in all, I thought this was a pretty clever idea. Kids get trapped in video games all the time… metaphorically speaking. Anyways, in the game they only have three lives, so if they lose all three then they just die. Which I thought was kind of interesting. I mean…they don’t just have to start over? Dying is pretty dramatic, but whatever floats your boat, I won’t judge.

Throughout the whole movie there was continuous comedy. It was true “laughing” quality. I definitely enjoyed this movie. It had a very happy ending and is worth watching again.

So in conclusion, if you haven’t seen the new Jumanji, your should watch it and take some time to lean back and relax.
