What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Theresa Smith Welcome to the jungle for a new generation.
Herman Lategan Net die fliek as jy moeg en sinies voel.
Todd McCarthy Story of a Man Cub.
Jim Judy While not quite matching the lofty standard set earlier this year by Zootopia, this talking animal flick easily takes home the silver medal, what with its pleasing mixture of action, drama, high adventure, comedy and memorable characters. Engaging and entertaining from start to finish.
Tomatometer As lovely to behold as it is engrossing to watch, The Jungle Book is the rare remake that actually improves upon its predecessors -- all while setting a new standard for CGI.
Staff evaluation Fangs and fur fly in visually dazzling but intense update.
