Jumanji (1995) (mini-review++)

r04

Review process: two scores assigned: (I don’t believe in Rotten Tomatoes. I just believe in me)

(***all-purpose SPOILER ALERT*** there may be some in this review)

(1) Shark Wrighter (SW) Score: Based on a sum of 5 sub-scores (acting, directing, writing/story, cinematography &/or animation &/or effects, editing) with 1 being terrible and 10 being terrific.

(2) Octopuses (0-5 🐙, with 5 being fantastic and 0 being feces)

The mini-review:

Jumanji (1995)

acting 7

directing 6

writing 6

effects 8

editing 6

SW score: 33

2.7 out of 5 octopi

++ It’s an interesting premise but the execution is not. Robin Williams was solid in this movie. And the other actors deliver serviceable but hardly deep performances. The effects are solid but the plot trudges along and everyone knows where it’s going. And it’s nowhere novel.
