Jungle Cruise Review

Tags : 

Based on Disneyland’s theme park ride where a small riverboat takes a group of travelers through a jungle filled with dangerous animals and reptiles but with a supernatural element.

Why did I come to this movie again?

1-The Rock
2-Emily Blunt
3-The Rock
4-Cheesy humor…by The Rock
5-Expectations of laughing out loud because of pure silliness

5 of 5


My expectations were fully fulfilled with the characters in the show. Dwayne Johnson was just as slap-stick as I thought he would be. Emily Blunt was just as Librarian-Evie-from-the-Mummy as I expected. Her brother tossed in some good humor as well as depth . The prince dude was cringe-worthy bad. I can’t give this 5 for 5 mostly because nothing came as a surprise.

Did I care what happened?

Yes. Considering the 2+ hour length of the movie I worried about action fatigue, but I didn’t get annoyed with it like I thought I might. The plot, while predictable, kept me wondering where we were going next. I wasn’t on the edge of my seat, but I did wonder.

Plot Holes

Like a superhero movie, I expect plot holes. In this case, there were enough to drive a submarine through. I didn’t go to the movie expecting anything else, and mostly the film embraced its own cheesiness and dared me to question its flawed logic. Which I decided not to do, else I spoil the wonders shown to me, like the back side of water.

How many times did I yawn?

None, and I saw it very late.

Cool Factor

The effects were fun. My biggest CGI twitch was the jaguar. The film certainly had spectacle down to an art. All in all, good.

The End

I was torn with the end. Without spoilers, I would have been fine if the film had swung the other way. As it is, I was satisfied. The finale is fun.

Overall Enjoyment

Loved it. Would see it again in theaters.
