Storyline: Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is back in the jungle once again with Disney’s latest film.
He went to the jungle in “Journey to Mysterious Island,” he did it again in “Jumanji,” and now he’s doing it again with “Jungle Cruise.” Despite being based on one of Disney’s oldest attractions, people have been wondering how it would turn out. Would it be good as the first “Pirates of the Caribbean,” or do we have another “Haunted Mansion” on our hands.
The film takes place in 1918 and centers on Dr. Lily Houghton (Emily Blunt), and her brother MacGregor (Jack Whitehall) who are doing research on a tree in the Amazon called the “Tears of the Moon,” which can cure any illness or injury. When the man-dominated association denies their request, the siblings decide to go to the Amazon themselves where they come across a cynical but capable skipper named Frank (Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson). Finding the sacred tree is easier said than done as they encounter dangerous creatures, cursed jungle zombies, and Germans in a submarine. Because of course a film called “Jungle Cruise” would have all these elements here.
Thumbs down: Some scenes will not seem like anything new or exciting to some fellas.
Thumbs up: Jungle Cruise is not a complicated movie, just pure fantasy enjoyable escapist entertainment! Isn’t that what we go to the movies for?
You can watch Jungle Cruise with anyone, thus fun for everyone. Be prepared to laugh a lot.
