The Jungle Book is an impressive visual marvel and a risky one, yet somehow works. For the most part. Young Neel Sethi, manages to anchor the effects heavy film, better than most experienced actors. However, there are moments where his inexperience does show through (and he can come off a wee-bit annoying). Enter the impressive voice talents Favreau has collected. Idris Elba's Shere Kahn, is one of the best on screen villains we've seen in a while. The craziness of Christopher Walken voicing King Louie, is delightfully insane and so crazy, it works. Bill Murray and Ben Kingsley, round out the cast nicely. When the movie is firing on all cylinders, it's a lot of fun. However, it does lag in parts, and Elba's Kahn is so good, one finds themselves searching for his next scene when he's not on screen. In the end, The Jungle Book is highly entertaining, and a visual feast for the eyes.
