This was one of the biggest surprises for me from 2017. This film is hilarious. The cast of Karen Gillan, Jack Black, Kevin Hart, and Dwayne Johnson make this a comedic masterpiece. The storyline is simple, it is a whacky version of The Breakfast Club. It involves misfit high schoolers in detention together that get absorbed into a video game. They embark on an adventure to save Jumanji and learn life altering lessons along the way while being avatars that are relevant to each character. By the end of the film, these misfits are predictably friends. There is also a great homage to Robin Williams' character from the original Jumanji movie which is sweet. This film makes you laugh and takes you on a fun exhilarating adventure at the same time. There are times where the charm of the film dwindles and there are humor droughts. Overall, this is a film that is fun to watch and can keep you entertained by the comedy and action. I give this film a 7.5/10.
