Thoughts on Jungle Run
Thoughts – Jungle Run is a movie looking to take advantage of the big blockbuster Jungle Cruise, where we have a pair of siblings traveling down the Amazon River in search for something, this time their father, even if there is a supernatural element behind what they are searching for. This is everything you would come to expect from the knock off version of a bigger movie, weaker story, worse effects all CGI animals for each different moment of peril, we get a different animal from the jungle, not the best acting and all and all, just sloppy. It is a film you could enjoy with a few drinks, get a laugh out of certain things, but by the end it isn’t going to be anything you remember for a good reason.
Final Thoughts – Jungle Run is everything you would expect from a cheap knock off, of a big budget movie.
