I drove to see this at the theater 45 minutes away from my home. I went excited because the last Jumanji was so fun and funny but soon found that the foul language in this sequel was terrible and frequent and the storyline was just okay. I'd give the writers and producers a do over, only this time make it kid friendly like it should be.
Plot was ok a bunch of good actors playing bad parts. I found all the cursing from Jack Black with the young black man voice disconserting. I came real close to turn it off. It was not child friendly. I think the whole movie could have been better cleaner or given a heavier rating.
My family and I were really looking forward to this movie. Now, I can cuss enough to make a sailor show respect upon occasion, but really? The first twenty minutes they used the "gd" word so many times I lost count. Of the plethora of words they could use, why that one? This is supposed to be a family movie and it is most definitely not. The story is good, the acting is fine, but frankly, I want my money back. I didn't get this movie just to listen to someone cuss at me - particularly with a word I find personally offensive. I gave birth to two ten pound babies without medication so if the writers need some good cuss words for the next movie that won't be so offensive, come talk to me, I can help you out. As for this movie, I'm going to make sure everyone I know with kids understands that the language ruins the movie and this is NOT family friendly.
Big departure from the first one. While I did enjoy seeing Karen Gillan more, the movie just dragged on and on! I kept wondering when it would be over. But the big shocker was the language! The first one I watched with my kids, and it really didn't raise any "red flags" with me,......this one, way , way, way too much adult language. I finally had my kids leave the room. I know many time sequel does not meet up with the first, but this wasn't just not as good, but a bad departure! Sony- smash the movie's video game and don't go back!

Sure, this is generally the same story structure as the first, the characters are trapped in a video game and have to win it to get out, but I found Jumanji: the Next Level to be a fairly entertaining time.
The movie's biggest strength is it is just having fun. Humor works pretty well, though a bit about the two elderly new comers to the game Eddie and Milo having trouble understanding what is going was stretched way too long. The characters all still work well off each of each other.
The action is bigger than the first and pretty impressive. I liked that their are more animal threats in this, which make the events feel more diverse. The film looks nice. The location is shifted from the traditional jungle to other exotic locales keeping things fresh.
The best new additions are Eddied, the crotchety old guy, and Milo, the affable but long-winded old guy. These guys serve as fresh new eyes to the world of Jumanji and are pretty funny, but their best aspect is their interactions with each other and the personal story of how these two once friends became estranged.
The cast playing the video game avatars that the characters become continue to do a great job. This time, some of them are given a chance to play different people. Everyone's pretty versatile. Awkwafina's in this and she is equally talented. I'm disappointed that Danny Devito and Danny Glover as the real world Eddie and Milo aren't in more of this, because I felt these were one of their best roles.
We really didn't need Nick Jonas back in this. He's mainly here because he was in the last one. The guy doesn't add much, especially since the cast is a little full as it is. Also, I felt the part of the introduction with real world Spencer (Alex Wolff) was a little rushed.
The villain in this Jurgen the Brutal (Rory McCann) has a little more to him than the paper-thin villain from the last film but not by much. You probably won't think of him after seeing this.
Overall, I liked the first movie, because the concept was fresher but this is a fun ride.
5.0 out of 5 starsEl siguiente nivel, pero misma excelente calidad.

Últimamente es raro encontrarse con mala calidad en los discos UHD y este no es la excepción. La imagen es excelente, con mucho detalle especialmente (obviamente) en tomas con mas dialogo. Los colores se ven vivos y con saturación suficiente sin llegar a ser exagerados. Contraste y brillo son excelentes. El rango de bits ronda la mayoría del tiempo entre 50 y 60 megas, pero hay momentos donde subía a increíbles 80 megas. El Sonido DTS-X es desgarrador y bien implementado. La escena de los mandriles puede ser usada como demostración. Las voces de los actores es clara y jamas es sobrepasada por la acción. Todo esta muy bien balanceado. El disco es de Sony por lo que tiene la opción "IMAX Enhanced" pero en lo personal mi equipo no cuenta con dicha opción.
El Servicio de Amazon sin problemas, todo entregado en buen estado y en el tiempo correspondiente.
Flawless picture and sound quality for my LG 75 inch 4K TV. Wild nature environments were clear as daylight and I think there were about 2 different herds of animal wildlife attacks and I thought there were going to more animal stampede attacks in the second half of the movie. Constant funny videogame character interaction for an action adventure movie. Has that Indiana Jones movie similarity but no enemy witchdoctor types.
5.0 out of 5 starsComical, entertaining, has a twist

I loved how new characters were added and how the new Jumanji characters were added too. The horse on the cover might give one away. Just as entertaining as the 1st one. The next level of the game is a challenge and works. Enjoy 👍
