One of this year's most surprisingly incredible theatrical releases, The Jungle Book, is now available in Digital HD and will be on Blu-Ray and DVD next week. . Not only is this release a must-buy because of the film by itself, but it is visually stunning and the features are great!
The most surprising thing about The Jungle Book was how visually pleasing it was. Going in, I didn't expect to enjoy it all that much, but even if you aren't a fan, the effects and cinematography is incredible. The release of the movie is presented in 1080p HD. Additionally, the audio is well-balanced and is of high quality.
Quality Rating: 5/5 stars
Another great part of this release was the Bonus content. The release includes the following features: 'The Jungle Book' Reimagined, I Am Mowgli, and King Louie's Temple: Layer by Layer. These offer a great behind the scenes look at different parts of how they made certain parts look realistic, and gives the backstory of the entire film.
Bonus Features: 5/5 Stars
The Jungle Book is the classic story you love, but with a modern, live-action twist. It is more intense, but it is very engaging, visually incredible, casting was perfect, and the movie was very enjoyable. It could have been made better in a few ways - I felt the story dragged a little and they could have cut some of it out.
Movie: 3.5/5 Stars
Final Rating: 13.5/15 Stars
