Movie review: Jumanji

Movie review: Jumanji

Ahhhh, Jumanji! The name itself excites me.
This movie is all about four teenagers who get lured into playing a magical board game (which sucks in whoever plays it). With mega stars such as Dwayne Johnson (The Rock), Kevin Hart, Jack Black, Nick Jonas and Karen Gillan starring in it, this movie is and always will be a great hit.

First things first, my personal opinion is that this movie was one of the best I’ve seen so far. It’s full of humor and adventure and the storyline is absolutely amazing. You have to catch this movie before it’s out of the cinema, I guarantee you that it is worth your money and your time.

So basically this plot is all about saving Jumanji from the evil curse that has been placed on it by returning a stone that was stolen by Van Pelt: a greedy treasure hunter.

On their way, they meet Alex a boy who has been stuck in the game for 20 years….
