Jumanji: The Next Level Out Today

GameStop, Inc.

I normally hate remakes and reboots, but when the first one stands toe-to-toe with the original and the sequel surpasses the remake, that says something. Jumanji: The Next Level is something I definitely didn’t want to like, because of my stubbornness, but danging it, I loved it!

This time around Spencer (Alex Wolff) is home from college. He’s young, unhappy and has broken up with Martha (Morgan Turner). So, what’s a young, brokenhearted man to do when visiting his mom and dealing with his grandpa Eddie (Danny DeVito) after hip surgery? Naturally go back and visit the greatest adventure of all? Jumanji!

Now, Fridge (Ser’Darius Blain), Grandpa Eddie, Martha and Grandpa Eddie’s old friend Milo (Danny Glover) must rescue the college student from Jumanji before he is killed by Jurgen the Brutal (Rory McCann), only this time there’s a twist. They didn’t get to pick their own characters and now Milo is Mouse (Kevin Hart) and Grandpa Eddie is Bravestone (Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson).

Watching Kevin Hart do a Danny Glover impression was absolutely fall-off-the-couch hysterical. I had to pause the movie numerous times because I couldn’t hear the dialogue from laughing so hard. However, when Grandpa Eddie was trapped in The Rock and later Awkwafina (you’ll have to watch the movie to find out about her character), they both did an impression of Danny DeVito as an old, Jewish, New York, yenta. It was still DeVito-esque, but it was more Mike Myers’ Linda Richman from the old SNL sketches.

Jumanji: The Next Level has a run time of 123 minutes and it’s almost entirely laughs with of course, several tear jerking moments. I don’t know if I’m more upset at myself for not wanting to like it, or that my stubbornness didn’t let me like it as much as I could have.

Jumanji: The Next Level is out today on 4K Ulta HD, Blu-ray, DVD and Digital today!

  • Overall Score
4.5

Summary

Jumanji: The Next Level is better than the remake of the first one and I had to admit that I loved it ever so much!
