HOLLYWOOD — Despite a star-studded cast featuring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Jack Black and Kevin Hart, Jake Kasdan’s “Jumanji: The Next Level” — the sequel to 2017′s “Welcome to the Jungle” — has garnered mix reviews from film critics. The action-packed comedy registered a score of 68% on Rotten Tomatoes’ Tomatometer. James Berardinelli of ReelViews gave the flick two and a half stars out of four. Ditto for Mark Kennedy, writer for the Associated Press, who wrote:

“Like all sequels, the second suffers from not having the delicious surprise of the first. But the seed to a third film is hinted at in the closing credits, which is more than the first film promised.”

In “The Next Level”, the gang returns but the game has changed. In order to rescue one of their own, the players will have to undergo a series rigorous challenges from desiccated deserts to snowy mountains to escape the world’s most perilous game. Will they succeed?

If you recall, “Welcome to the Jungle” brought in nearly $1 billion at the global box office.

Will the sequel generate similar revenue?

    So Jack Black can play a teenage girl and a black dude?

    But is no one gonna talk about Dwayne playing a teenage nerd and a old man perfectly

  7. Nothing will beat the original jumanji

  8. SO… what kind of character do you want to play in this franchise?
    The Rock: ALL OF THEM! a girl, a geek… oh and DANY DEVITO!

  9. Dwayne Johnson acting like Danny Devito.
    Kevin Hart acting like Donald Glover.
    Jack Black acting like a black dude and a teenage girl.

  28. It was Fun, the action was decent too. The two older characters clearing the slate and making peace was nice. But, is there a sequel where Jumanji spills into the real world if you follow the extra scene at the end?.
