Detroit NewsDecember 22, 2017
"Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle" makes the original "Jumanji" look like a towering cinematic achievement.

Mostly great fun, with Jack Black outrageously entertaining as a teenage girl. But we need to talk about Karen. As Ruby Roundhouse, Gillan is stuck in less clothes than one of Rihanna's backing dancers.
New York Magazine/VultureDecember 21, 2017
The movie has amusingly broad performances; good, bloodless scares ... and self-empowering life lessons too bland to be specious. You could do far worse.
Chicago ReaderDecember 21, 2017
Like a video game, the narrative lacks any character development, relying on obstacles, chases, and the threat of elimination. Hart delivers his one-liners with precision and verve, and Johnson is sweetly funny as the muscular incarnation of a gawky nerd.

But what the film lacks in depth, it balances in detail. Black's soft - but not comically squeaky - voice gives Bethany the soul she lacked in hot girl form, back when all the screenwriters could think of to have her do was take selfies.

It's Hollywood formula at its most generic.

Freaky Friday meets Indiana Jones in this surprisingly funny reimagining of the Robin Williams classic.
Creative LoafingDecember 24, 2017
Enjoyable and undemanding entertainment.

As a throwaway adventure, Jumanji makes for a terrifically entertaining time killer, its big action set pieces nicely offset with some choice comic acting.

Veteran cast saves "Jumanji" redux.
Times (UK)December 22, 2017
Yet another needless reboot searching for a reason to exist.
Irish IndependentDecember 22, 2017
Best of all, though, is Jack Black, whom I could watch pretending to be a pampered teenage prom queen till the cows come home.
