A very solid movie. Mowgli's acting is about as good as could be expected, but the best performances are from the animals of course. Murray, Johansson, Elba, Kingsley, Walken, Nyong'o all do fantastic jobs in their roles. It's not the first live-action Jungle Book, but it's definitely the best version, live or animated, period.

I thought over all this is a good movie but the actor who played mowgli his acting was ok but not that good if they had chosen a better actor the movie would have been better but over all I give it 3 and a half stars.

It was so different and great to see a real movie (with animated real animals) made out of the jungle book. The interpretation of the great soundtrack was very good but a bit more music would have been better.

Excellent retelling of the Disney animation. It dragged a bit at some parts.

Love this version of the Jungle Book! Well done!

This is a none cartoon version of the Jungle book. I still like the cartoon version better which is more light hearted. I also like the music better in the cartoon version. But it is the same story in a different setting.

Great family movie with stunning visuals and graphics. Disney seems to be continuing the tradition of capturing audiences' interest. It was a thrill to watch from start to end with fantastic CGI. The actor, Neel Sethi, did a good job being Mowgli. The story was enjoyable, just like the original. The movement of those animals was smooth and natural, especially the scene where the big orangutan was chasing Mowgli in the old, scary castle ruins and monkeys were screaming loudly. It was quite a thrilling chase!!! And at the end, the orangutan was the one to lose. Baloo and Bagheera were always with Mowgli and their chemistry was amazing. The voices were also on point, actors like Bill Murray, who played Baloo, matched the character perfectly. The ending of Sher Khan reminded me of another Disney classic, the epic "The Lion King". 4 out of 5.

Wonderful movie for children and adults who love the beauties of nature and animals. Bill Murray's voice was easy to recognize in the bear friend, who has his same attitudes.

This is an entertaining and polished live-action version of the '60s classic. Ultimately though, the more serious tone and mere homage to the wonderful music of the original film, fail to bring this out of its predecessor's shadow.

Raksha: [to Mowgli] Never forget this: You're mine. Mine, to me. No matter where you go, or what they may call you. You will always be my son.

Tons of quotes in IMDb already as this one:

Bagheera: [tackles Mowgli to restrain him from fighting Shere Khan] Stay here!
Mowgli: [trying to push Bagheera's paw away] But I want to fight like the wolves!
Bagheera: You can't fight him like a wolf! You're NOT a wolf!
Bagheera: Fight him like a man!

But not this one yet:
I realise you weren't born a wolf, but couldn't you at least act like one?
