Movie Review - Jungle Cruise

Edsel Valdez

Sep 27, 2021

If you’re into these “into-the-jungle” types of movies, then this should be a must watch.

In the movie Jungle Cruise, there were many critics who complimented Johnson and Blunt's chemistry and the entertainment values, but they didn’t enjoy the screenplay and the insane amount of CGI. Despite all of these mixed feelings, a sequel is in development with Johnson and Blunt set to repeat their roles.
For the cast we have Dwayne Johnson as Frank Wolff, Emily Blunt as Dr. Lily Houghton, Jack Whitehall as MacGregor Houghton, Jesse Plemons as Prince Joachim, and many other actors that are seen in this film

In a world where there is an ancient tree that holds healing properties, the only plan for it is to find it. Knowing that this kind of tree exists, is the kind of discovery that will change the future of medicine but the only problem is that the tree is believed to be a myth. Dr. Lily Houghton, a deuteragonist, makes this claim and believes that the answer to its location is found in an old Amazon map and with some arrowhead artifact that she requested access to.
The society denies her request so instead she steals the arrowhead and sets off to Brazil with her brother, Macgregor. As they set off to the Amazon, they meet others along the way including Prince Joachim who also believes in the myth.

The movie isn’t complicated and in fact, it’s actually extremely easy to watch. The film revolves itself around fantasy and it’s main purpose, just like every other movie, it’s all meant to entertain the audience. The movie is extremely action packed and it has some beautiful scenery too. There's also some shocks and twists in this movie, but like I said before, it still maintains its basic storyline while keeping you engaged. So if you’re into these “into-the-jungle” types of movies, then this should be a must watch.
