The Jungle Book

The Jungle Book

Beautiful rendered, but with the majority of the animal cast seemingly phoning their parts in they seem so disinterested, the first half is pretty dull and boring. And Idris Elba just isn’t very convincing at all. I seem to be the only person in the world who just doesn’t rate him…

And then Baloo shows up and the wonderful Bill Murray breathes some fun and life into things. And King Louie too is amazing.

The final battle with Shere Khan is action packed and highly enjoyable and made my daughter jump (along with the lady on the other side of me too!), saving the movie from the snooze inducing first half.

Web developer by day, with a movie and TV watchlist that continues to grow as much as my spare time reduces! My favourite movie is Inception and, despite what everyone says, I do not have a man-crush on Tom Cruise.
