Movie Review: Jungle Cruise

Movie Review: Jungle Cruise

Jungle Cruise Cast: Dwayne Johnson, Emily Blunt, Edgar Ramírez, Jack Whitehall, Jesse Plemons, Paul Giamatti (guest appearance) Jungle Cruise Director: Jaume Collet-Serra Where to Watch: In Theatres (excluding Maharashtra and Kerala) Review by: Russel D'Silva Also Read - Trending OTT News Today: Jagga Jasoos to return as a web series, Thalaivi to release on 2 OTT platforms, Red Notice teaser kicks ass and more Finding a movie like the Indiana Jones trilogy (no, including the fourth installment isn't worth tarnishing the legacy of the first three), Romancing the Stone, The Mummy, The Adventure of Robin Hood (1938), Captain Blood, The Mask of Zorro these days is akin to searching for a needle in a haystack. Adventure movies, especially the romanticized, swashbuckling kind, are increasingly becoming a rare breed in Bollywood, and it's not a good thing. With the advent of slick, sleek superhero movies, very few adventure films like the ones that take us to exotic locations or mystic lands in the search of treasure or fabled secrets, and featuring daring heroes and vivacious heroines, are being made. Honestly, the last good adventure movies made were Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl and national Treasure, back in 2003 and 2004. So, when a nostalgic ride like Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt's Jungle Cruise surfaces in 2021, it's the duty of any self-respecting movie buff to savour it, even if it just about missed the cut of the aforementioned classics.
