    I love this movie so much! The story, voice acting, & soundtrack are incredible! As for the animation, I actually grown to like it more than the 2016 version. Sure Disney's was beautiful no doubt. But these animated characters were so much more expressive. They didn't just look cool, they acted! I can't wait to see what work Andy Serkis has in store for the future! 😁

    I just saw this movie, I'm a big fan of the animated jungle book and the CGI of 2016, but this, use the best cast, I not mean the actors quality, its the chemistry and the combination of them, its simply amazing, and I loved the direction of Andy on the film, and me being an illustrator and fan of Aaron blaise, who worked on Disney in many movies, and is an amazing creature illustrator, he design Baloo in this movie and man it's amazing to see his work, I just loved all the movie, amazing work.

    Netflix, please top pushing this, you're too late. There already is a life action version of jungle book, we don't need another one right after it. Shame because andy is such an amazing actor.

    Yay we can watch an indian boy in loin cloth run around with a talking bear. Why are they so fascinated with this story, it was remade last year too. Maybe try something new? There's plenty of greek and nordic myth you could try make a movie of. Maybe to date best done with the movie beowulf. More of that please and less jungle book.

    The movie is visually stunning, and Christian Bale does one of the best jobs with any motion-captured animated character, period. However, the story and script are, in many ways, dull...or just a retread of stuff we've seen time and time again (not specifically with Disney's Jungle Book). This setup with a brilliant script, and YES a little more money put into it, could have made something outstanding. It's far from being BAD though, and props to Serkis for directing it expertly.

    I really liked Mowgli. I thought the characters were all great, especially their choice for Mowgli. Definitely a better adaptation than Disney's jungle book

  • Don Falcone
    Don Falcone 7 months ago +5

    Better than The jungle book remake. Period. Its closer to the book (and a close book adaptation was really necessary after all the Disney stuff) and the animals still have the actors mimics. If you compare them to the jungle book remake you can see that Serkis gave every animal a small similarity to the actors they are played by. I admit that the Disney's special effects were slightly better but that doesn't matter if the story is poor and it was extremely poor (the original Disney jungle book was way better). Netflix is doing something extremely right here and that is giving creators back the creativity. They can handle a flop so the outcome is more unique and interesting (can be very bad as well on the other hand).

    I'm so on board with "Animal Farm". The cell-animated movie gave me nightmares as a kid, but at the same time I absolutely loved it, because it was so dark and harsh.

    • Quotenwagnerianer
      Quotenwagnerianer 7 months ago

      But not as a single movie this time that only adapts the first half of the book. They should aim at least for a two parter.
      And find a better solution for the "the nothing" which was really poorly done in the movie compared to it's description on the book.
      I think the best solution would be a 26 Episode series in 2 seasons turning each chapter from the book into an episode.

    Andy Serkis is the LEAST awarded mainstream actor in current history. The judges are old and backward. Vale the next generation. Hang around Andy .... you'll get a gong or two in short order. Category reshuffle needed.

      @Krisso That seems like a subjective opinion on your part -- not a concrete reason that "he can't direct." Again, your opinion is in the minority.

      @Dr. Zoidberg I mean the whole look of it was just off putting and just distracted me from the whole story. I honestly had no care for it, I feel like Netflix is just running franchises

    • Dr. Zoidberg
      Dr. Zoidberg 7 months ago

      @Krisso You seem to be in a pretty small minority. Maybe you had the wrong expectations? Mowgli was meant to be an adaptation of the actual book, not the Disney story.

    Just finished watching Mowgli and I don't understand why all the hate? Yes, ok, the CGI was not Disney level because it's not Disney nor did they have the same budget. Plus, the CGI for Mowgli was still really good and better than most movies that use CGI. The voice acting was phenomenal but that's to be expected from a talented cast. The soundtrack was great and I especially loved Kaa's theme. I enjoyed both Andy Serkis's version of the Jungle Book as well as Disney's version but I ultimately prefer Andy's version even if there were no musical numbers in Mowgli. I really appreciated the heavy focus on Mowgli's character and the storytelling was wonderful. It's no masterpiece but it certainly doesn't deserve the critic hate I've seen online.

      I did a quick google search and the most reliable information I could find was that Spielberg said at the begining of this year, that the project is not dead. It is just that PJ needs to start working on the script, which he hasn't done yet.
      So earliest possible release is 2021. I have no idea where you get the idea that a trailer was supposed to drop this year.

    • Akshay Bisht
      Akshay Bisht 7 months ago

      @Quotenwagnerianer Trailer was supposed to drop in early 2018. Too much underrated movie

    • Quotenwagnerianer
      Quotenwagnerianer 7 months ago

      They can't. Spielberg holds the rights, thus he is the one who would need to decide to make another one.
      To my understanding that was the original plan. For the second one Peter Jackson and Steven Spielberg would switch jobs and Jackson would direct and Spielberg produce. No idea what derailed that idea. Was it bad box office returns?

      Nowadays I start to prefer watching movies at home. The sound mix is usually better on my system, I have no annoying juveniles around me who talk or play with their phones, and the snacks aren't overprized. ;)
      The only thing that I still miss is a projector and that can show me a picture that completely fills my field of view.

      This doesn't have anything to do with Disney & their projects.
      Andy is a fan of the actual book & wanted to make movie more true to Rudyard Kipling's original story -- it was only an unfortunate coincidence that Disney decided to remake their own version of the Jungle Book while this one was being worked on.

    Good mo vie. I got a little bit emotional. Loved this cute handicapped little white albino wolf and he got killed by the hunter. Sad. Most human are CRUEL. No wonder, most human being are the corrupt. Look at vote. Vote doesn't solve anything. More vote and more corrupt than ever. I am glad that Elephant killed the hunter. The hunter does it for entertainment and just for sports. Just like today, many people killed animals for sport and the hunters don't deserve to live. Thats not for me to judge, you know. Anyway, animals should be respect.

      Isn't that usually how it goes with "Jungle Book" adaptations? They all expect the Disney version (which has very little to do with the book) and then are dissapointed when the adapation is closer to the book.

      Only compared to Disney's work -- & Disney had one of the largest corporations on Earth throwing infinite amounts of money at it, of course they were gonna have better CGI.
      That being said, the effects were certainly not lousy in Mowgli -- remember, all of those environments & pretty much everything besides the human characters is all CG.

      No AS's Mowgli is the coorect to make a movie out of a cartoon, or story.
      The animals in the Jungle Book have human emotions which the reader can imagine, and cartoon drawings could capture. But a live adaptation will try to make a kitty to have human expression which wouldn't work. for example Disney's JB I was looking at Shere Khan and Bageera as kittens, didn't connect with them as much as in As Mowgli, even though their animation is much better
