Though there was great scepticism before the 2017 reboot, 'Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle' did pretty good in cinemas because it managed to show something new and original.
So we are talking about a video game which can be dangerous as the players are literally drawn into the game where different avatars embody them and they have to survive despite all difficulties. The recipe is basically good humour plus charismatic actors plus spectacular action. In the sequel we meet again this bunch of teenage friends. Martha, Beth and Fridge want to save Spencer, who got stuck in the game. But they are not the only ones to go: accidentally the old grandpa of Spencer goes too, together with his elderly friend. This time the jungle is not the only setting they have to overcome so sandy dunes and snowy mountaines give us a real adventure experience while Kevin Hart & Dwayne Johnson are great as the avatars of grumpy old men.
