So what's it all about, then?
Much like the Disney animation, the story revolves around man-cub Mowgli being forced to flee the jungle he grew up in after he and his pack are threatened by the tiger Shere Khan. Guided by Bagheera the panther and Baloo the bear, he goes on a dangerous but important journey of self-discovery.
Anyone good in it?
Mowgli is played by young actor Neel Sethi, and a bunch of massive names voice the CGI jungle creatures. Prepare for a VERY long list.
Bill Murray is the voice of Baloo, Ben Kingsley the voice of Bagheera, Idris Elba is Shere Khan, Lupita Nyong'o voices Raksha, Scarlett Johannsen is Kaa the snake, and Christopher Walken is King Louie.
What were the highlights?
The contrast between the lighthearted and dark moments in the film was perfectly done, and we absolutely loved every scene with Baloo in it - particularly the one's when he's in search of honey. Oh, and the music was brilliantly nostalgic too.
If it won an Oscar it would be for...
The visual effects. They were absolutely incredible. Each individual shot apparently took weeks to animate, and the result is like nothing we've ever seen before.
But these bits should've been left on the floor
Oh God, NONE OF IT. It was complete visual perfection from start to finish, and there wasn't a dull moment in the whole plot.
Any cover your face in fear moments?
The fight sequences were pretty intense, and Kaa the snake was full-on terrifying - especially in 3D.
5 STARS. It was the perfect adaption of a beloved classic, and it's completely made us re-think our position on live-action adaptions. We're now fully up for them, just FYI.
Oh, and it's also one of those films that will appeal to everyone, so you don't have to worry if anyone in your group won't like it.
The Jungle Book officially hits the cinema today (April 15th) so you best get booking your tickets immediately.
