TheMorlock's favs.
So Disney's recent Jungle Book isn't a very good movie. Is it terrible? No. There are a few good things I can say about this movie: the voice acting is good for the most part, I appreciate that they made use of some lore from the books (the peace rock, and the wolf pack's mantra), Christopher Walken's King Louie is a welcome and memorable addition to the story and the entire Bandar-Log sequence is pretty awesome, as is the action-packed climax. Overall though, this movie is a mess. I knew going in that it was going to be significantly different from the book so I wasn't expecting a faithful adaptation but even just as a film this wasn't very good. The character's motivations made no sense (why was Shere Khan so obsessed with killing Mowgli? Why did the wolf cubs trust Shere Khan after he killed their alpha in front of the pack? Why was Bagheera the one teaching Mowgli how to be a wolf and why should wolves know how to climb trees? Why did Kaa show Mowgli his past if she just wanted to eat him?), the tone is all over the place and the movie cannot make up its mind on whether or not it wants to be a musical, with jazzy show tunes coming out of nowhere, completely clashing with the gritty aesthetic. The film-makers had the opportunity to tell this phenomenal classic story but instead we got this: a clumsy confusing jungle of a film that foregoes the genuine emotion, high stakes and strong themes of Kipling's original in favour of visually appealing fluff with a few Bill Murray one-liners thrown in for effect. Disappointing. Here's hoping Andy Serkis and Warner Brothers do better.
