Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A gloomy special-effects extravaganza filled with grotesque images, generating fear and despair."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"This smart, scary film, is still a favorite to dust off and take from the "vhs" bin"
‑ Emily Blunt, Blunt Review
"Unsatisfied with just being cute, this sucker wound up being both fun and clever."
‑ Widgett Walls, Needcoffee.com
"Everyone is good here, with Williams taking on the unusual persona of straightman much of the way."
‑ Chris Hicks, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
"Some thrills, but may be too much for little ones."
‑ Charles Cassady, Common Sense Media
"All the effects in the world can't disguise the thin plot."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"A visually impressive and exhilarating adventure that keeps the suspense, thrills and comedy running high through the surprising end and supplies interesting characters with moving plights that keep the audience rooting."
‑ Christine James, Boxoffice Magazine
"Like the rest of Johnston's oeuvre, Jumanji puts vivid characters through paces that will quicken any child's pulse."
‑ Peter Canavese, Groucho Reviews
"Great special effects and exciting adventure stuff. A bit of a slow buildup and unnecessarily dead parents."
‑ Fred Topel, About.com
"Take away the CGI mayhem and what emerges is a rather touching tale of second chances and innocence prematurely lost."
‑ Neil Smith, BBC
