A deaf critic reviews The Jungle Book
The Jungle Book is a fantasy adventure film directed by Jon Favreau. Mowgli is played by Neel Sethi and the other characters are voiced by Ben Kingsley, Lupita Nyong'o, Scarlett Johansson and Christopher Walken. The 3D effects are brilliant as the movie takes us into the jungle. Neel Sethi's performance is impressive. The film moves in a thrilling, fast pace and the voices of the characters are done perfectly.
The animation is very life-like and the story, based on the book by Rudyard Kipling, stays true to the original story in spirit.
