Animated films about talking animals are in recent years haven’t been stellar. The Secret Life of Pets, Norm of the North, The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature – God I can’t believe I just typed that – And The Jungle Bunch.
The Jungle Bunch is based on the kids TV series of the same name, where animals have to…fight other animals? Honestly, I can’t tell. By the looks of it, the villain in this film is like a koala or something that has an army of baboons. Either way, it’s 90 minutes of fun stuff for kids to enjoy.
While I truly believe the animated genre goes far above and beyond kids entertainment, this does not. Fans of the show will enjoy it, parents will probably loathe it, not much else to say. It looks horribly animated though, especially syncing the voices.
The Jungle Bunch is out 15th September
