This is without a doubt a very good family movie. Many people seem to compare it unfavorably with the “original” animated movie from Walt Disney. To me these are quite different movies and should not really be compared. I have not read the book but I have a feeling that this movie follows the book more closely. It is a wee bit darker, more serious and incredibly beautiful to watch.
I quite liked the original jungle book movie. It was one of my favorites when I was a kid. I am therefore quite happy that this was not just a “dumb” remake with modern CGI and that I quite liked this take of the classic story. This movie is, as I wrote, much more serious and a wee bit darker. It is less of a children’s movie than the original.
The wolves are getting much more time in this movie which is good. Mowgli’s opponents are also much less comical and much more sinister. Kaa is a beastly snake with no remorse, King Louie is a huge, scheming, and tyrannical ape King and finally Shere Khan is a ruthless, human hating, tiger that kills anyone or anything that stands in his way.
The CGI is top notch as far as I am concerned. The jungle scenery is absolutely stunning and it is really worth watching the movie just for the scenery. Combined with a classic adventure story that is not half bad makes for a really a good movie.
I was definitely positively surprised by this movie. For me it is a big success.
Really good watch, would watch again, and can recommend.
I’ll honestly go as far as to recommend this over the original 1967 version.
I don’t think is quite as charming as the original, and it has a very different animation style, both with great quality of detail in it. From the individual strains of fur, to the types of animals included (I’ve done so much research on Indian wildlife today), you can really see the details of the cg effects. Just watch the end credit sequence alone, and it’ll prove it.
There are 3 huge improvements to this versus others: Sher Khan’s face, King Louie, and the intensity of the animal fight scenes. The movie isn’t free of problems: I imagine someone will have issues with talking animals vs non-talking animals, that he’d have to learn the language (so how would he ever understand Sher Khan or Baloo?).
If anything, I think the writing took a hit. Where the original had a subtle but strong fables sequencing to it (sort of modular moral stories with shifting focus on characters), this is structured much closer to how many video game stories are structured, serialized chapters with some level of power creep and shifting focus of environment and goals but all focused on Mowgli. And I don’t think the writing is bad, but this Jungle kid (never actually reveals his backstory, somewhat of a relief honestly) is performing clean engineering using vines and pulleys and armor (that wouldn’t work) with calculated positioning. I understand that some people just have talent for some things, but I had to question whether or not I could do the same thing. I could, but I’d have to do it different ways.
And in all fairness some of the stupid /inconsistent things he gets up too, even though he’s a “take charge” Mowgli in this version really got to me: I was literally cheering for Sher Khan at certain points.
Ultimately I had a good time with it, and I think most people and possibly their pets will too (my cats were interested for a while).
The boy Mowgli (Neel Sethi) is raised in the jungle by the female wolf Raksha with her cubs in the pack led by Akela. The panther Bagheera saved Mowgli when he was a baby and delivered him to Raksha. During the drought, the animals celebrate truce to drink water around the Peace Rock together, but the cruel tiger Shere Khan sees Mowgli and promises to kill him when the water return. Bagheera decides to guide Mowgli to a village on the outskirts of the woods, but they are attacked by Shere Khan during their journey. Mowgli flees but the anaconda Kaa attacks him; however the bear Baloo saves him and they become friends. But Shere Khan wants to kill Mowgli and no animal is capable to stop him. What will happen to Mowgli?
“The Jungle Book” is an awesome film with fantastic CGI. It is impressive the interaction of Mowgli with the animals and the jungle. The wolf cubs are cute and the voice of Scarlett Johansson is mesmerizing. My vote is eight.
Title (Brazil):”Mogli: O Menino Lobo” (“Mogli: The Boy Wolf”)
The Jungle Book
In recent years Disney have been remaking some of their classic animated movies into live action, so far they’ve done Alice in Wonderland, Sleeping Beauty (Maleficent) and Cinderella, with mixed results, and this was the latest offering, a remake of the 1967 classic based on the books by Rudyard Kipling, directed by Jon Favreau (Elf, Zathura: A Space Adventure, Iron Man). Basically Mowgli (introducing Neel Sethi) is a “man-cub” raised by a pack of wolves ever since he was found as a baby by black panther Bagheera (Sir Ben Kingsley) in the jungle, his adoptive mother is Raksha (12 Years a Slave’s Lupita Nyong’o) and pack leader is Akela (Breaking Bad’s Giancarlo Esposito). One day in dry season jungle animals gather to drink remaining water during a drought as part of a truce, Akela berates Mowgli for using human tricks, the truce however is disrupted when Bengal tiger Shere Khan (Idris Elba), vengeful towards man for scarring him, he vows to kill Mowgli at the end of the drought. The wolf pack debate whether to keep Mowgli or not, he voluntarily decides to leave the jungle, Bagheera agrees and offers to guide him to the safety of the man village, en route however Shere Khan ambushes them, injures Bagheera, while Mowgli escapes through a stampede of wildebeests. In a darker part of the jungle Mowgli meets enormous Indian python Kaa (Scarlett Johansson), she hypnotises him, Mowgli sees a visions of his father being mauled while protecting him from Shere Khan, and the destructive power of the “red flower” (fire), Kaa then attempts to devour Mowgli, but is rescued by a creature unseen when he blacks out. Mowgli wakes and meets sloth bear Baloo (Bill Murray), he shows the man cub the man village and agrees to take him when the winter season arrives, if he still wishes to leave the jungle, however they form a close bond with their teamwork getting them things easily, including portions of honeycomb. Bagheera hears that Shere Khan has killed Akela and taken over the hills, he is hunting Mowgli, Baloo realises that he cannot the man cub’s safety and agrees to push him away so he will head to the man village. However Mowgli is kidnapped by monkeys, who take him to their ruler King Louie (Christopher Walken), an Orangutan-resembling Gigantopithecus, who tries to coerce him into the secret of creating the red flower, but Baloo and Bagheera arrive and rescue him, and cause the temple to fall apart. During the chase Mowgli was informed by King Louie of Akela’s death, furious that Baloo and Bagheera never told him he decides to return to confront Shere Khan, to do so he finds the man village and steals a lit torch to use as a weapon. Mowgli faces Shere Khan, who points out that he has made himself an enemy of the jungle by accidentally causing a wildfire, he throws the torch into the water and gives the tiger the advantage, but Baloo, Bagheera and the wolf pack stand together to hold him off, Mowgli is given enough time to lure Shere Khan into the burning jungle, and he causes him to fall from a broken tree branch to his death in the fire below. In the end the fire is extinguished when river water is released into the jungle, Raksha becomes the new alpha of the wolf pack, Mowgli has found his true home and calls the wolf pack, Baloo and Bagheera his family. Also starring Garry Shandling as Ikki the Indian porcupine, Brighton Rose as Gray, Jon Favreau as Pygmy Hog and Sam Raimi as Giant Squirrel. All stars are well chosen for their roles, newcomer Sethi is terrific as the orphaned boy raised by wolves, Murray is lovable as the sarcastic good- natured bear, Kingsley does well as the wise panther, Walken is a surprisingly good choice for the massive monkey leader, Johansson gets her time being an oddly seductive snake, and Elba is a fantastically ferocious villain. This live action version obviously sticks much closely to the source material than the original incarnation, but it leaves room for the adored and memorable songs “The Bare Necessities”, “I Wanna Be Like You” and “Trust in Me”, the special effects to bring the animals and jungle to lie are amazing, there is splendid action and well-timed laughs, and it brings an all together different feel and story that will enchant a new generation, a brilliantly entertaining fantasy adventure. It won the Oscar for Best Visual Effects and it won the BAFTA for Best Special Visual Effects. Very good!
