The Jungle Book Movie Review - Best Disney Live Action To Date!

Rating: 5 out of 5

This film is a must-see! Directed by Jon Favreau (“Iron Man”), based on Rudyard Kipling’s timeless stories and inspired by Disney’s classic animated film, “The Jungle Book” is an all-new live-action epic adventure about Mowgli (Neel Sethi), a man-cub who’s been raised by a family of wolves. The family ties amongst the species is endearing. However, Mowgli finds he is no longer welcome in the jungle when fearsome tiger Shere Khan (voice of Idris Elba), who bears the scars of Man, promises to eliminate him, as he sees him as a threat. Abandoning the only home he’s ever known, Mowgli embarks on a captivating journey of self-discovery, guided by panther-turned-stern mentor Bagheera (voice of Ben Kingsley). He encounters a free-spirited bear named Baloo (voice of Bill Murray). Both Kingsley and Murray voiced the roles impeccably. We even got the familiar songs we loved as kids from Baloo and King Louie (voice of Christopher Walken). With Shere Khan still after him the story gets adventureous and intense at times. Mowgli encounters  a python, Kaa (voice of Scarlett Johansson), whose seductive voice and gaze hypnotizes him. The CGI in this film is absolutely done to perfection. The twist on the original story being brought to live-action just enhanced this beloved story. It was another top notch job from director Jon Favreau.

My son, Jack, loved this movie. He loved the action and the animals that were brought to life. We asked him to rate the movie and he gave it a 9,000 (out of 10)...LOL!
