MOVIE REVIEW - Jungle Cruise

The Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt starrer, Jungle Cruise, hits the theaters recently. The joys of exciting scenes and surprises on-screen are what I missed the most.

Based on Disney Park's Jungle Cruise, this production elevates the experience of the attraction with water rapids, wild animals, enchanted forests, and even hidden jungle tribes -- so brace yourselves as you go aboard the Amazon adventure.

Dwayne Johnson plays Frank Wolff, who currently works as a tour guide to the Amazon rivers caught in the adventure of an archaeologist Lily Houghton (Emily Blunt) and her brother MacGregor (Jack Whitehall). The search for an enchanted tree that is believed in legends had them cross with another hunter and the unknown mystics of the Amazon trail.

It's like I'm watching a combination of Indiana Jones and Pirates of the Caribbean in the themes and adventure. You'll have lots of trees, snakes, piranhas and also mystical creatures that are coming from the dead. Expect the same good Dwayne Johnson injecting humor that you can buy and Emily Blunt and her British self that works on a good chemistry. Visuals are also great but the leopard Proxima is too obvious CGI. Above all, Jungle Cruise is still an enjoyable flick for the family.

Jungle Cruise also casts Paul Giamati, Edgar Ramirez, and more. Directed by Jaume Collet-Sera for Walt Disney Pictures.
