REVIEW IN ONE SENTENCE: A beautifully-crafted movie that will bring out your inner child, while giving your eyes pleasure.
* This film, while suitable for a younger audience, also has the ability to entertain those of an older demographic. With stunning scenes crafted digitally and with great detail, The Jungle Book was more than I expected it to be. This film will give you the impression of an amazing technically executed feat, as well as the feeling of a comforting, familiar, familial story. Definitely give this a watch.
