This month I decided to watch an action and adventure movie, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle and it was actually really good. The plot was great.

The movie was fun and enjoyable. The movie started off with four high schoolers discovering a video game console called Jumanji. What they discover later is that they not just play the game, they 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.

The actors had some great performances. Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart and especially Black added some entertaining performances. The cast was really great. When I heard Jumanji was getting remade I was nervous that it was going to be really bad, so glad that it didn’t. 

I give this movie a 7/10 because I really enjoyed the movie and it was hilarious. The movie was way more fun than I expected. The thing that I like about the movie is that the characters can’t think only of themselves, because they need one another’s strengths to complete tasks, go up levels, and ultimately finish the game.
