Storyline

In a brand new Jumanji adventure, four high school kids discover an old video game console and are drawn into the game's jungle setting, literally becoming the adult avatars they chose. What they discover is that you don't just play Jumanji - you must survive it. To beat the game and return to the real world, they'll have to go on the most dangerous adventure of their lives, discover what Alan Parrish left 20 years ago, and change the way they think about themselves - or they'll be stuck in the game forever, to be played by others without break.

Not a game like the original. Boring.
15 December 2017 | by See all my reviews

This is totally not a game where you throw the dice and some magic will appear in the real life, either bad or worst. Not even like Zathura. For me, the acting is not bad, but the story telling is horrible. It should maintain the story telling same as original Jumanji, or maybe like Zathura. But instead, just some kids that suck into the game and trying to safe Jumanji.

The comedy is good, laughable, but almost the end of the story, it becoming boring. Not a throwing dice kinda game, it is just a action movie in the jungle..

1 more time i would say, dont go, coz it is boring story.
