Didn't quite live up to the level of the first movie - but new characters and twists kept the fun going!

"The Next Level" has great special effects but cannot match the sincere heart of the first Jumanji (1995). The acting, which lacks nuance or believability, isn't helped by the unimaginative writing.

If you liked the movie "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle" from 2017, then you will probably like this sequel too. It is a very amusing, entertaining adventure movie. Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Karen Gillan and Kevin Hart are all very convincing and funny as they play their characters. This movie doesn't quite feel as fresh as the 2017 movie, but it is still good. The movie livens things up by having the game avatars representing different people than they did in the first movie. The opening scenes before they enter the game aren't that exciting, but once the game begins, the movie is a fast-paced, lively adventure for the rest of the way. Highly recommended as a breezy, light-hearted, fun film.

Perhaps not as great as the first one, but still an enjoyable movie. Good to watch with the whole family.

Jumanji The Next Level is an amazing adventure, comedy packed movie staring Dwane Johnson, Jack Black, Kevin Hart, Karen Gillian Nick Jonas, Danny Glover, and Danny DeVito. This movie is about a group of teens who get stuck inside a game again trying to get their friend back, but instead, a twist happens. The hilarious aspect came in when they try to work with a twist or ultimately resolve it. The adventure is in the Jungle, desert and snowy places where enemies await.
This movie is filled with comedy and action scenes that are sure to leave people laughing. This is a perfect movie if you want some laughs with friends or family. I personally watched this movie with my family and we all loved it. I just found some scenes very very funny that left me in an outburst of laughter. We all know that even behind all the fantasy and the fiction each movie has an important moral which in this case I think is important in these times - "Nothing great can be accomplished alone, teamwork is what makes a greater success".
I would give this movie a 5-star rating for its hilarious comedic scenes, amazing action, and adventure scenes and its moral. Another contributing factor is the movie's story, all of seemed right and nothing was exaggerated or stressed.

This movie is the sequel to Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, so I suggest you watch that before you watch this. I feel like this movie was way better than the first… I don’t even know how that’s possible, but the plot of this movie was awesome. The movie is about 4 kids who had a crazy experience in the past that brought all of them together despite their differences. But over time they grew apart because of how busy their lives were. Based on certain circumstances they had to go back into the game, what they found shocked them. They thought it would be like the first time but everything was different including the characters. I really loved this move because I felt like a lot of teenagers at moment would relate to spencer who had decided that to be in the game was better for him than to be lonely in the real world because of the confidence he had when he was another character. But as usual they all worked towards their problems and made important decisions about life. 5/5 stars

IMDb has some quotes. Missing are those on grandpas:

What are you doing? Grandpa.
- What's it look like?
Who are you? You're Spencer's grandfather.
- Yeah, no kidding.
So, what exactly are we looking for again?
-We're looking for my grandson, genius.
Okay, "Follow the flame to the desert fruit."
That ain't Spencer. Look, I know my grandson. My grandson's a guy.
What happened?
-My grandpa beat up 45 strangers.
It's a Jumanji berry, and it weighs like 100 pounds.
-My grandpa will carry it.
No, Grandpa Eddie, that's Switchblade! I'm telling you, there's a time when you run.
-Then there's a time in life, like now, where you stay...
Your grandpa beats the hell out of the wrong guy or we get attacked by a bear, what am I supposed to do?
