Jumanji: The Next Level: Many times the trailer of the film is so bored that it ends all curiosity. But after watching the film it seems that man, it is not as bad as it was when watching the trailer. One feels the same when watching the film ‘Jumanji: The Next Level’. The thrill that started with a board game in 1981 led to video games in the year 2017 and this time the same video game is once again on the rise, causing uproar. Stars like Dwayne Johnson, Nick Jonas, Kevin Hart and Karen Gillan entertain us amidst this upheaval in the jungle.
The film begins with a lovely meeting of friends on the occasion of Christmas. These include Spencer (Alex Wolf), Martha Cappley (Morgan Turner), Bethany Walker (Madison Isman) and Anthony Fridge Johnson (Sardarius Blaine). Spencer has returned from New York to his hometown to meet friends. He is somewhat depressed because he feels that his girlfriend Martha does not like him. Even his grandfather (Eddie Gilpin) is not able to overcome his sadness. On the other hand, Grandpa is extremely angry with his friend Milo Walker (Danny Glover) as he took a retirement from the two’s shared catering business.
Meanwhile, Spencer disappears and his friends begin to think that he might have gone into the world of Jumanji. In such a situation, all these friends also try to go there to bring him back. All these are successful in entering the game of Jumanji, but one of the messes is that many of their characters change compared to the previous time. All the fun comes because of this mess! Like last time, we meet Dr. Bravestone (Dwayne Johnson), Professor Sheldon (Jack Blake), Franklin Mouse Finbar (Kevin Hart), and Karen Gillan (Ruby Roundhouse). Apart from this, there is also a horse named Cyclone in this group. Also, actress Aquafina is also in a new character. The team seeks to save the world of Jumanji from the plans of a new villain Jurgen the Brutal (Rory Machen). The group also meets Alex (Nick Jonas), who has been living here for many years,
The film brings laughter, but it is not as entertaining as the previous two. The dose of thrill was also less than this time. Jake Casden’s direction is average.
However, the scenes involving ostriches and bears are spectacular. The director has kept a good balance of comedy, emotion, action, adventure in the film. Talking about the performance, Dwayne Johnson has raised the level of his comic timing along with the action.
Jake Black’s One Liners laugh. At the same time, Karen Gillan has managed to make a strong presence. Danny DeVito as Eddie makes the film live. His relationship with friend Mylo i.e. Danny Glover seems very sweet. While Nick Jonas is handsome, Aquafina has done justice to her character.
This twist by the film’s writer-director Jake Kasdan not only adds newness to the story, but also gives it an extension. Varna, after ‘Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle’, it would have been difficult to reunite the audience with the same characters and almost the same story. Like last time, this time also this team has to complete a dangerous task, for which they have to face two-fours of different kinds of threats. By the way, this task does not seem like something very new or more exciting.
