Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle 3D

This sequel to the children's fantasy Jumanji (1995) offers none of the pathos Robin Williams brought to the original, but it does have lots of action, some good gags, and better CGI. Four high school students stumble upon an old video game console that pulls them into an alternate reality, and they assume the forms of adult avatars (Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black, and Karen Gillan) to battle a jungle overlord for a mystical jewel. Like a video game, the narrative lacks any character development, relying on obstacles, chases, and the threat of elimination. Hart delivers his one-liners with precision and verve, and Johnson is sweetly funny as the muscular incarnation of a gawky nerd. Directed by Jake Kasdan; with Bobby Cannavale, Nick Jonas, and Colin Hanks.
