Jumanji: The Next Level does what it says on the tin by upping the ante while keeping the charm and humour from 2017's reboot.
Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle had a lot to prove as a reboot from the much loved 1995 adventure, but following its success, the third Jumanji film now has an awful lot to live up to – and for the most part, it really does.
This time around our four teen characters are not the only ones drawn into the game with Spencer's grandfather (Danny DeVito) and his friend (Danny Glover) genius additions to this adventure.
Bringing new characters into the fold and switching up who is who breathes new life into things instantly, and the film really leans into the video game side of things even more with the new challenges our group face to once again, save Jumanji.
It manages to be familiar but never stale.
Seeing Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart embody DeVito and Glover provides some of the best gags, and moments of real heart. Hart in particular excels here.
Jumanji is bigger, the cast gets better, and the laughs keep coming.
