I’ve seen a lot of people out there are comparing the first and today’s Jumanji and a lot of people are getting many positive and negative thoughts about today’s. I am not really a Jumanji lover as i don’t watch their complete series and this is my first time watching the 123 minutes complete of Jumanji. So, that’s why I found this movie is really an awesome movie! I love the concept of the movie. 

During the movie, I was thinking if i was there. It would be an amazing experience and also frightening. Is there any Jumanji concept theme park out there? If there is, I would like to try lol. I am sure it will be lit! 

The PG rating for this movie is 13+ so it actually doesn’t suit kids to watch this because there is kissing scenes and an exchanging character that somehow brings confusion.

But overall, this movie is worth watching!


Let’s go back to the main topic! 

Jumanji: The Next Level is a 2019 American based movie. It was a franchise and Jumanji: The Next Level is the third movie after the first Jumanji (1995) and Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017). 


Alright, let me tell you the short plot of this movie. It begins when Spencer (Alex Wolff) did not attend the meet up with his friends, learning that they had no idea where Spencer was, the team went to Spencer’s house and found that Jumanji board game was there and they bet that Spencer was inside the game. So, the team took a step forward to follow Spencer and helping him. 

The game malfunctions when starting up, sucking in only Fridge (Ser’Darius Blain) and Martha (Morgan Turner), along with Eddie (Danny DeVito) and Milo (Danny Glover), forcing Bethany (Madison Iseman) to contact fellow Jumanji player Alex Vreeke (Colin Hanks) for help. Inside the game, they got their new character and meet with Nigel (Rhys Darby), the non-player character which was the game’s guide.

Nigel explained that they can only leave the game if only they can recover the Falcon’s Heart – a magical necklace that was stolen by warlord Jurgen the Brutal (Rory McCann) which can end the drought if brought before sunlight and uttering Jumanji. 

And so, the adventure began when they were transported to a desert called the Dunes to track down Jurgen and to find Spencer. Wrap it here; I am not going to go further because it will spoil the entire plot. 

There after watching this movie, I began to love Dwayne Johnson great acting. He is such a great actor indeed, and also for the other actors that work hard for this movie. They are excellent! It entertains me so much. They got the funny, action, sad emotions in one movie. The movie is telling us about family, friends and how important it is to enjoy our life when we were still young and healthy.
