    What makes this sequel work is the charm of its story.

    It may be nearly 40 years past due, but it was worth the wait.
  3. 50
    It's perfectly effective, though only rarely inspired.
  4. 50
    This is a by-the-numbers rehash that will leave anyone much over 5 enormously grateful that, if you duck out before the lengthy end credits, it lasts just over an hour.
  5. Unremarkable sequel to the 1967 hit.
  6. 30
    Even the animation is imitative rather than inventive.
  7. 10
    The new tunes sound like Buster Poindexter mainlining Sweet 'n Low, and at a critically song-starved moment, John Goodman's Baloo admits, "King Louie? He split!" Before the third defibrillation of "Bare Necessities," you and your kids might too.

    I actually enjoyed this movie the animation is great and the voice acting is decent and it's faithful to the original and I enjoyed the music, and it tells us about Mowgli's life in the village, although it's a little short but it's great! Expand

    This sequel is just an exact replica of the original, but it is not nearly as amusing the second time

    When I first saw this movie as a kid, I loved it, but now that I'm older, I can see how it's actually a disgrace to the first movie, which I still love. Expand

    I was a huge fan of the original. This however, is simply horrendous. I don't remember much about the movie, however I do remember that I thoroughly hated it! I remember stating it was the "worst movie I had ever seen!" Appalling! Expand

    Nope done with all these piece of **** remakes that are trying to retell an already aweful movie. I think these generations are becoming less and less creative. Expand
