This is an exceptional movie with stunning visuals. It’s a great adaptation of the 1967 Disney classic and the stories by Rudyard Kipling. While being a more modern and realistic approach to the story, it still manages to capture the magic and atmosphere of the original movie.
First of all I want to talk about the visuals. This movie is gorgeous. You immediately feel like you are in the jungle and not even once did I have the feeling that this was all made up. The use of special effects is terrific, you can’t see the difference between what’s real and what isn’t (and not much of it is real, so that’s even more impressive). The world that they have created is amazing and extremely big. It amazes me to think that they never even left their studio lot to go film in an actual jungle-like location.
