Review: ‘Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle’ is Rated "A" for Adrenaline Filled Fun

In 1995, a movie named Jumanji graced the planet earth with its presence. It had suspenseful action, compelling characters, and starred the late Robin Williams. Thus, as the years went by, it slowly became viewed as a classic action-adventure film for kids and adults alike. Then, in August of 2015, Sony Pictures announced that they were going to produce a remake of the 1995 film which would come to be called Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. With director Jake Kasdan at the helm, known for his previous work on Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story, New Girl, and Fresh Off the Boat, the film soon amassed a star studded cast including Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black, Karen Gillan, and Nick Jonas (just to name a few). With such an incredible line-up of people trying to deliver a more modern sequel to a film starring one of the most legendary comedians of all time, one would expect the film to be filled to the brim with amazing moments of both action and humor. And boy...did they deliver.
