Jungle Cruise is a 2021 American fantasy adventure comedy film directed by Jaume Collet-Serra from a story by Glenn Ficarra & John Requa and a screenplay written by Michael Green, Ficarra, and Requa, based on Walt Disney‘s theme park attraction of the same name.
Jungle Cruise is the latest Disney live-action film. The director is Jaume Collet-Serra, who directed many entertaining Liam Neeson action flicks. Glad to say, the direction is gorgeous here.
Despite being type-casted, Dwayne Johnson gives a very likable and charming performance. His character and Emily Blunt’s scientist character is the best aspect of Jungle Cruise. Their chemistry is very enjoyable.
Now there are some dumb Disney jokes, obviously for younger audience to have fun. The jokes are mostly presented by the comic relief character, McGregor.
The three main cast work well, but unfortunately not the villains. There are 2 groups of villains, one is the Germans, the other one is some supernatural trope of people. Why can’t there just be one?
The film asks you to believe a lot of things. There’s a certain thing explored about a character in the 2nd act that just didn’t work for me. You’ll know what I’m talking about when you see it.
Bottom Line :
The movie at times feel like a Disney ride, which is its source material. Jungle Cruise is perfect for people who want a CGI-filled fun ride.
