A towering visual and technical achievement that has heart to spare. Rare are the family movies nowadays that generate genuine suspense and riveting adventure but Disney's Jungle Book pulls it off. Excellent work from Jon Favreau to turn this property into such an emotionally complete film. The choice to make the voice acting nuanced (and almost achingly human) and not cartoonish, as films of this ilk tend to be, add greater heft and character to these animals that benefit the film surprisingly.

A hollow enterprise through and through. A game cast (including an undeservedly magnificent Emily Blunt) check off an imaginary list to qualify as a blockbuster. Not even the CGI is all that excellent when you find out it cost 115million to make (admittedly smaller in budget than the original but bloated all the same when the resources are all there to hire more story executives).

It's amazing how many local user reviews have concentrated on the lack of action sequences throughout the first act as a weakness when it is this very restraint that effectively gives weight to all the action of the third act. Make no mistake, the set pieces are spectacular and the action incessantly inventive but the more fascinating conflict at play here is in the ideological clash of these heroes. The dialogue is superb and while the script could have been perfect (difficult to admit but, while crowd-pleasing, the sub-plots to insert Spider-man and Black Panther into the narrative are somew...
