The Jungle Book Movie Review

Credits: Fitnhit
For a contemporary blockbuster this is a remarkably patient film. 

In order to instill in its audience the sort of wonder it ultimately summons, it allows itself to linger on small moments most modern blockbusters have no time for, so that by the end of the film, we know the Law of the Jungle as well as Mowgli and his pack, and we care that Shere Kahn has threatened it.
Of course none of that would be possible without the extraordinary work of the bajillion CG artists who worked to make this film as stunning as it is. It’s easy to heap praise on the voice actors, who all certainly did amazing jobs, but their performances came to vivid life thanks to those artists.
I know some people didn’t like the intrusion of the songs, but this movie is like a myth, and its songs are the most vivid reminders of the timelessness of this story.
This movie simultaneously made me proud to be human, and encouraged me to remember my responsibility to nature. 
I had a classic Disney experience.
