Personal Thoughts

Jumanji is a fun film. It doesn't take itself too seriously, and there are quite a few laughs to be had. The characters were great. I really liked the younger cast and would have been interested to see a movie were they were given the spotlight... Not that I don't like The Rocks smoulder?!

Age Recommendation 

12+

Score  

70/100
