Friday, July 30, 2021

Impossible not to like, difficult to love Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt are their usual, hugely enjoyable selves and even Jack Whitehall isn't particularly annoying. The story zips along pleasantly enough, delivering all the necessary action as it does so and, before you know it, two hours have passed agreeably enough. And that's about it, really...You can't help but enjoy everything while it's happening but, once done, there's not an awful lot left on the bones to pick over. Hollywood being what it is, I'm sure a sequel is in the works. There really shouldn't be. They just barely managed to make this initial movie work, trying to repeat that process will, on the evidence of what we have here, be a very risky endeavour. Leave well alone and move on to the next Disneyland attraction would be my advice. Jason Statham in It's A Small World, anyone...?Kudos, by the...

Very Funny and Entertaining with Johnson and Blunt Both carry the movie with wit and charm. Johnson is Frank a con artist with a heart of gold and steam boat captain that has a secret you will have to find outBlunt is Lily the female version of Indiana Jones who is not fearful of almost anything when I say almost you have to see her Achilles heel so see why again.As they search over for the healing power in the Tree of Life. That could help in modern medicine for the future, set in during WWI.Jack Whitewall as Lily's reluctant non-athletic book smart younger brother MacGregor who is the perfect straight man foil to the two leads.As the trio face dangerous animals, hidden secrets, and a German aristocrat and nemesis, antagonist of the film played by Breaking Bad's Jesse Plemmons.A whale of a good time here. Ignore the critics. Will be entertaining and...

Great cast, action & comedic bits, but a stale plot Perfect duo Dwayne and Emily, they were perfect for these roles and bought many comedic moments to the film. The action was great, well worth experiencing this on the big screen as I did. Only issue was the plot is very repetitive as in they need to find something that will help everyone etc, we've seen it in heaps of other films, so nothing special plot wise. I did see many resemblances to films such as raiders of the lost ark and the first pirates of the Caribbean film, which were great films to base ideas off of for this film around many aspects such as the adventure side of the film and the comedy. Overall it was an exciting and funny big screen adventure.

jungle ride This was a fun time watching, I loved Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt's dynamic and their chemistry together on the adventure.The cinematography in the jungle is really pretty and makes really cool shots, the effects looked pretty real and worked well with the scenes they are used in.The action scenes are really fun and there are funny scenes with the characters also the human villains are a little over the top but I still was entertained, the actual CGI creatures had creepy designs and worked well against the main characters.This movie made me think of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies and a bit of the Indiana Jones movies put together, and I mean that in a good way.

Felt Tedious !! Trust me , I really wanted to enjoy this movie but as the movie kept going i just couldn't ... The movie had its moments , there are some solid scenes but the movie didn't feel fresh. Inspite of a solid cast and amazing visuals i personally couldn't stop yawing after a certain point. This movie is very similar to Pirates of the Caribbean, if Johnny depp had acted in the place of Dwayne Johnson this movie Would have been Pirates of the Caribbean 6. To me this movie was a big disappointment.
