Just about every film you will ever watch (with a few acceptions) will have been influenced by another film, and may seem very similar to that film in more ways than one. However, Jumanji is a complete acception to this rule. It is a completely original and fantstic idea for a film, which has become unsuprisingly succesful.
When Alan Parish finds an old game in a building site and begins playing it with Sarah, a girl on his street, he dissappears and she is chased out of the house by a swarm of bats. Twenty Six years later, Judy and Peter find it in the attic of there new house, (the old Parish house) and they also begin to play. They release Alan, along with a hoard of unimaginable nightmares, their only hope being to finish the game, if they live that long!
The special effects in this movie, in there day were excelent, however they do look a little bit dated now, especially the lion. It still works well though. The acting is also pretty ok, especially from Robin Williams, who in my mind is on top form here.
Although this film was promoted as a family movie, some parts are pretty intense and scary, especially the beginning where the previous two children are burying the game. Therefore you may want to watch it before you show it to very young children. Having said this, it really is an excelent film and most of the family can enjoy the solid entertainment.
If you buy this film then i guarentee that you will be gripping your seat,and will be thinking of nothing else until the end. Well worth buying.

Four people experience the universal parable of how life is unfair. No sentimentality -- life IS unfair, so deal with it. And they do with comic drama.

The kids love this film and it has never dated. If you haven't seen it take a look.

Jumanji is the scariest board game you'll ever play Robin Williams as Alan Parish an boy lost in the jungles of Jumanji for years until Judy and Peter free him they must now finish the game to change history and return the creatures back to the game.

Robin Williams is great in this filmn as in many of his film roles he not that funny like in Mrs. Doudtfire but if you a Robin Williams fan you will like this film and you'll never look at your board games the same way again.
