I wasn't really expecting much from this flick but since Nick, my step-son, was really eager to check, we ended up watching it in the movie theater. In fact, I actually saw 'Jumanji' in the movie theater when it was released at the time so it was actually pretty cool to see this new installment with my step-son. On top of that, I have to admit that the damned thing turned out to be surprisingly satisfying. I mean, with such sequels, they usually recycle the same storyline with some rather underwhelming end-result but, in this case, they only kept the original concept but changed pretty much everything else and it really worked. Even though you might wonder if it was really necessarily to switch from a board game to a video-game, it was actually a good idea since it allowed the makers to try some new ideas. This time around, they also mostly focused on the humor and it was also a good move to have more characters involved in the game and the cast involved (Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Karen Gillan) was actually pretty solid. To conclude, even if this movie was not a masterpiece, it still turned out to be quite entertaining and probably the most surprising movie released in 2017.
