Was an ok movie! Not really a great remake. I expected more from Disney.
SO TERRIBLE. ONE OF THE WORST MOVIES EVER. BORING, UNFUNNY JOKES, THIS REMAKE DOES NOT DESERVE TO SHARE THE NAME OF THE ORIGINAL
Pure Disney magic - and a nice mix of Kipling's tale and elements from the Disney animated classic. Neel Sethi is incredible as Mowgli - especially when you consider he was acting to a green screen, or Henson Workshop facsimiles of the other characters, most of the time.
Finally got to see this on the weekend. I was impressed. Adding the 2 great songs from the cartoon version in a unique way was key. Everyone says the movies rely on too much CGI nowadays, well this one, the CGI helped make the story what it was. Mowgli was a great actor considering he's a newbie in the movie world, he acted as though he'd been around talking to animals for years!
How animals came together at end against the lion..great movie.
I thoroughly enjoyed it. A wondrous retelling of the tales by Rudyard Kipling. A drawing card for children and adults alike. Very realistic depictions of the animals. Heartwarming and fun. My kind of movie.
stunning images, 3d version is better
fantastic, just fantastic
It wasn't that bad, but there was no need to make another Jungle Book movie, the original is perfectly fine.
Great movie, but does Mowgli have to look so much like Jian Ghomeshi?!?!
Another Disney ram down our throats repeat of a old classic...just like star wars. Special effect do not make a classic...ever. Screenplay and new frontiers. Give me a break. Come up with new material you evil money hungry Disney cronies...
It's a deadly movie but an awesome
Me n the family went today. Oh man, what an awesome movie. Good fun for all ages. Love the classic cartoon and this just brought everything to life. Kids were asking for part 2. ??
Graphics unbelievable but why make a new one the old one remains THE classic. Kind of ruined the songs with a new rendition.
Great movie. Took my nephew to the original movie and today my nephew took me.
Went to see the regular non 3D one with mom and dad. Very good. Great graphics animation. The main boy in it was amazing. At times brought tears to my eyes. Didn't even finish my sprite and popcorn. That's how much I was into it haha.
Loved the movie. Graphics amazing, animal characters, great job. Bravo!
Too dark and a little cheesy the effect. The kid did good acting. The old version is better.
Saw this movie with my husband. Thoroughly enjoyed but would not recommend this for children under 8.
Saw this movie in 3D and it was pretty amazing! The animals were so real like and some moments in the movie are pretty intense. Some parts had me laughing, some had me crying and some had me jumping out of my seat. All around feel good movie, everyone should see!
Way too scary for 5-6 year olds but Nana loved it.
Saw it at the VIP 3D theater and I was blown away. So well done and can't believe the graphics and how everything came together.
Most entertaining, memorable, action packed and enjoyable adventure!
My daughter and I loved the movie. Idris Alba was fierce as a tiger, Bill Murray was born to play that bear. My daughter kept on saying awesome! That little boy is a super star in the making. The movie was entertaining but also had some real life lessons for kids and adults to learn; Bullying, discipline, responsibility... and the list goes on. Loved every bit of it.
Me and my daughter loved the movie especially in 3D, The animals look so real. I thinks it's one of the best remakes of the story.
I absolutely love the live-action remakes that Disney has been making recently. The Jungle Book did not disappoint! Fans of the original animated movie will love a number of references back to the animated film including the iconic music. The scenery transports you right to the jungle, with a mystical edge and feel to it.
Job well done
This movie is NOT for children only! The computer animation is so exceptional adults will be equally mesmerized. Great story line and fun for all.
Loved the movie especially with the special effects in 3D.
I loved the film. The scenery, the special effects, the actors were all terrific. I'm sure it will become a classic.
I really loved this movie. The way they made the animals come to life like that was amazing. All the voices were so well done and I am really happy how this movie turned out! I recommend everyone should go see it!
This movie continues to be one of my faves! The effects were amazing and the film was a great fit for my 11 year old nephew who had a blast! Great work Mowgli!
Loved this movie....if you can see it in IMAX.....well worth it.
EVERYBODY NEEDS TO SEE THIS MOVIE!!! Although, in my opinion the lower viewing age limit is mature 10 year old. The quality of CGI is phenomenal! This movie will be all over the Oscars for technical achievements. And acting! Neel Sethi, who played Mowgli, was amazing, moreso when you consider that most of his acting was against greenscreen, playing off of tennis balls and digital prompts of animals. The artists behind this have ushered in a New Age of Digital Filmmaking.
Enjoyed the movie. Suitable for children and adults. The CGI animals and jungle were very good. I especially liked the plans to get the honey from the cliff tops. Very clever.
Visually impeccable, the 3D adds to the movie and the animal designs are great. Animal sounds are also great, but the songs are okay at best. The movie is a bit too linear and with some scenes are too short for my liking. Neel Sethi did a good job as Mowgli. Overall, a good movie for the whole family, but there are scenes that could be quite scary for some young children. Still, there are enough light-hearted and funny moments in the movie for them too. It will give older Jungle Book fans an urge to read Kipling's novel again (or for the first time) or watch the older Jungle Book cartoons and movies once more. On another subject: for Tribute.ca staff, adding the half-star to the rating system would be much appreciated. I would actually rate it *** 1/2 star out of five.
My son and I truly enjoyed it. It was exhilarating at times and sweet at others. Overall a great family film.
Movie was awesome! Watched with my 11 year old daughter and we jumped few times! Had great graphics, sound and animation! Fave character is Baloo :)) Will def buy the movie when it comes out
Absolutely loved the movie. Truly brought back my childhood memories! Definitely would recommend !!????
This film was a really lovely update of the older animated Disney feature. I loved the empowering ending (won't say too much more - no spoilers!). My five year old found it a bit scary at parts, and not as entertaining for her age group as the Disney animated films - but I think older kids will absolutely love it.
My 8 year old son and I loved the movie! Jon Favreau is an awesome director.
Pure Disney magic! The movie was simply amazing to watch! Thank you Tribute for the advance viewing tickets :)
The one cute little boy was raised in the jungle & went through such an adventure to make his point stand throughout: living with nature where he felt safe with love & protection of the jungle law... I walked out of the theatre feeling in awe of how brave Mowgli did with all his survival skills.. Beautifully done in 3D attracts me from the start to the end of movie.
This is an excellent film. I loved Baloo.
An enjoyable movie for all ages. Bill Murray's Baloo was the highlight.
A fun movie and interesting update. Voice acting was well done with the possible exception of Christopher Walkin, whose accent seemed just a little off. Though the musical numbers that were included were expected, they also took you out of the movies' flow and could have just been left out altogether. All in all, worth the money - 3.5 stars
