Motion capture and live action are combined in this story of the upbringing of the human child Mowgli (Rohan Chand), raised by a wolf pack in the jungles of India. As he learns the often harsh rules of the jungle, under the tutelage of a bear named Baloo (Andy Serkis) and a panther named Bagheera (Christian Bale), Mowgli becomes accepted by the animals of the jungle as one of their own. All but one: the fearsome tiger Shere Khan (Benedict Cumberbatch).

But there may be greater dangers lurking in the jungle, as Mowgli comes face to face with his human origins.

  • 1 star "Not as great as the " The Jungle Book " adaption. Cinematix are not that great, and character looks are frightening as opposed to friendly, well atleast for those characters who need be. Do not recommend, personally The Jungle Book is one of my favourite movies from the past few years and the Netflix version has just ruined it..."
