After a period of development that lasted nearly twenty years, the film finally got here. But is it also worth watching?
CNN: “The Jungle Cruise makes the best of it, a light-hearted adventure very reminiscent of The Mummy and several Disney productions.”
Roger Ebert: “In the set of Disney attractions-based films, the Jungle Cruise is very good—much better than Haunted Mansion, but not quite as satisfying as the original Pirates of the Caribbean.”
