Wanted to post a quick review of the new Jungle Book film because I was so surprised by how much I liked it.
I wouldn’t normally have gone to see this film in the cinema but it was my friend’s birthday and we had vouchers for the tickets so I thought why not? I knew I would like the film but thought that it couldn’t be better or much different from the original, so wasn’t that bothered.
However…I am completely blown away and amazed. The CGI in this film is a whole other level! You forget entirely that the animals aren’t real and it really emphasises the acting talent of young Neel Sethi. The film is not a musical as such but does include the classic tunes, it wouldn’t be the same if it didn’t! With a long list of famous cast members, they add their own unique voices and personalities to bring much loved characters back to life with a more updated approach.
The film is now on my list of faves to come out this year. It sets the bar high for upcoming CGI in films and dare I say it is better than the original!
Let me know what you thought!
