What critics are saying about Jumanji: The Next Level

  • Published on Nov 22, 2019
  • The Jumanji franchise is apparently taking action-comedy to... well, it's right there in the title.
    The third film in the series, Jumanji: The Next Level, has screened for critics, and while they're not yet allowed to pen formal reviews, many of them have taken to social media to offer their praise. Singled out for heaping helpings of accolades is Kevin Hart, who spent much of the sequel channeling Danny Glover.
    If that sounds confusing, here's a little backstory.
    The 1995 classic Jumanji dealt with the plight of two children who play a jungle-themed board game that unleashes its hazards on the real world as they play and who soon discover that it's possible to get physically sucked into the game.
    The 2017 sequel Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle expanded the original film's lore by morphing Jumanji into a video game. Four teens find themselves not only transported into the game's world, but transformed into its avatars: Dwayne Johnson's Dr. Smolder Bravestone, Jack Black's Professor Sheldon Oberon, Kevin Hart's Franklin "Mouse" Finbar, and Karen Gillan's Ruby Roundhouse.
    Jumanji: The Next Level finds the teens forced to once again jump back into the game along with one character's grandfather, played by Danny Devito, and grandfather's friend, played by Danny Glover. The two old folks are involuntarily brought along for the ride and assigned the avatars of Bravestone and Finbar.
    Critics who took to Twitter to offer up their assessments of the flick were near-unanimous in claiming that Jumanji: The Next Level is absolutely a worthy sequel and Hart totally nailing the well-known mannerisms of Glover was roundly considered to be a highlight.
    As Sean O'Connell of CinemaBlend wrote,
    "[Jumanji: The Next Level] has some huge surprises and introduces a LOT of story that's fun to explore. The best reason to go back into the game? [Kevin Hart] channeling Danny Glover. That joke kept making me laugh long and hard!"
    TV personality Tara Hitchcock concurred, writing,
    "Hard 2 top [Jack Black] as a teenage girl in the last [Jumanji] film, but [Kevin Hart] as Danny Glover DOES IT! Omg I could listen 2 him tell me the backstory of wild animals all day!" Keep watching the video to see what critics are saying about Jumanji: The Next Level

      When giving the background story of Jumanji, you somehow neglected to mention another Jumanji movie called ZATHURA. Why's that? Isn't Zathura also part of the Jumanji franchise/universe?

    I am looking forward to The Next Level. I really enjoyed Welcome to the Jungle which was one of the most enjoyable movies I have ever watched. I met Karen Gillan (Ruby Roundhouse) in 2015.

      @Peter Productions yep, same here, Welcome to the Jungle was waaaaaaay better than a movie like this deserves to be, and is really the definition of "fun for the whole family". Contrast this with tons of other movies that try and miserably fail to do the same, and consider the fact that this is a soft reboot/sequel of a beloved 90's movie... and I am for once happy (not "excited", but "happy") that they are making a sequel to that! Amazing.

      @Nicholas Maude The saddest part about any of these Jumanji sequels is this: Robin Williams will never reprise the role that made us all fall in love with the films in the first place. That thought keeps me awake at night sometimes...
