    Both Jake Kasdan (Bad Teacher) and Jumanji 1995's quality could've easily bombed this remake,especially considering Kasdan's lineup of movies he directed.
    Luckily (and surprisingly) this movie isn't just fun,but also an easy appeal to videogame fans and the new generation of teenagers. When the 4 students get sucked into the game,that's where the movie starts to have its focus,with Dwayne Johnson,Jack Black and Karen Gillan playing against type (and Kevin Hart as well,even if sometimes he's just being Hart). Also,I heard of this complain on the internet where fans were angry about Gillan's charachter being almost shirtless,and I disagree with it,since a videogame needs to have a sexy female charachter (not everytime,though).
    The story is good enough,with loads of fun moments (including,somehow,some toilet humor),some exciting action scenes full of excellent stunts and an impressive way of directing them,your typical videogame cliches,and the goofy (if not also adventurous) score by Henry Jackman (Big Hero 6 and Kingsman).
    And yes,while this movie is full of CGI,you can still justify the fact that they're stuck in a videogame.
    But some downsides are still there. As said,Kevin Hart's character can sometimes be wooden and some of the toilet humor can be kind of gross (especially for a PG-13 movie).
    But you can still (safely) enjoy this movie with your family and kids will mostly have a good time at this (believe me,my auditorium was almost packed with kids).
    Of course it's better than the 1995 original,if you needed those terms.
