Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle 2018

Movie Rating:

Plot

A man cub is lost in the jungle after his parents were killed by tiger Shere Khan. Bagheera, a panther picks up the boy and leaves him outside of a wolf family. They call him Mowgli and he is now under the protection of the wolf. Shere Khan is waiting for an opportunity to kill Mowgli. 

Thoughts

Still remembers the animated version of Jungle Book that played on national TV. It's rated as PG-13 and felt like Mowgli enters into Governor's house(Walking Dead). This movie mainly relies on motion capture performances where human actors wear special equipment to capture the real emotions from the face and translate it to the computerized animals. Rohan Chand conveys more anger and sadness into the character and you can call it a matured Mowgli. The character I liked most in the movie is Bhoot and after seeing it you will understand why. Overall, Andy Serkis’ Mowgli is a dark version of The Jungle Book and the reason why I call it a dark is strictly due to a haunting scene that stuck in my head after finishing the movie.
