Alright now that I know that bit - hit me with a little clip....
Well I'm still reading so I must be intrigued tell me more!
So we are back with our adventure seekers ending up back in the game and having to fight to stay alive. However some of the characters do not end up in the original bodies that they were in before. Add in two grandpa types that are excited for loose joints and you get a bit of comedy that comes along with people that stop filtering what they say.
So Spencer is pretty blue about how his life has turned out and decides he is going to repair the game and go back to the prime of his life as Braveheart. However things don't go as planned and the rest of the crew need to join him to save him from Jumanji where the rules and game have changed.
Stayed true to the characters that were developed from the prior film. So thumbs up on that. In addition we have three more characters that are added to the mix. Loving the diversity on the cast and a little bit of the female representation that makes it in.
Really loved the addition to a cast with another female character that has the cat burglar skills needed in the game. Stayed true with a female fighter and even provided the opportunity of clothes that would be practical to the snow setting rather than keeping the jungle clothes on. So thank you for the practically aspect.
That's all great and thanks but the real deets now!
Good movie. I laughed, I cried. Would highly recommend in 3D. Wouldn't stress on seeing it on opening day but don't wait to long to hit the cinemas for it.
Rhiannon viewed the film in 3D setting at Cineworld Rushden Lakes on 6 December 2019.
