Plot[ edit ] In , during the British Raj in India , Mowgli is the 5-year-old son of the widowed Nathoo, whose wife died in childbirth. Nathoo works as a tour guide. On one of his tours, he leads Colonel Geoffrey Brydon and his men, as well as Brydon's 5-year-old daughter, Katherine, nicknamed Kitty. Fellow tour guide Buldeo and two soldiers kill several animals for sport, which enrages Shere Khan , a tiger who serves as the jungle's keeper, and he begins to pursue the tour group.

“The Jungle Book,” “Mowgli,” and more strange cases of the “twin film” phenomenon

Scarlett Johansson. Christopher Walken. Bill Murray , Kermit Ruffins. Total length: Wikiquote has quotations related to: The Jungle Book film. With Mowgli: Legends of the Jungle you enter a place that's dirtier, darker, steamier and more visceral and raw -- a jungle where danger lurks at every turn. In Andy Serkis' interpretation of Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book -- streaming on Netflix now -- there's nothing charming and whimsical about being a child lost in the animal kingdom.

And there's certainly no singing. It's impossible not to keep comparing Serkis' version of this classic story to Disney's live-action remake of its own animated family favorite. In Disney's remake, the animals are remarkably photo-realistic. But Serkis is purposefully trying to achieve something entirely different. The motion capture is used to make the animal characters deeper, richer and almost more recognizably human.

This no doubt presents more of a challenge for the actors than straightforward voice work, and as a result the animals are expressive and affecting. They're more well-rounded and relatable than their Disney counterparts, even if they're not as instantly charming.

Christian Bale 's nuanced performance as Bagheera the panther and Benedict Cumberbatch 's ferocity as tiger Shere Khan are standouts that translate particularly powerfully through the performance capture. Another disappointment? The character Baloo, played by Serkis himself, feels slightly like a caricature and overly rough around the edges.

The singing, dancing slacker of your Disney memories is gone, which leaves this already dark film sorely lacking any softness or comic relief. But as you'll have guessed from the film's title, it's not all about the animals. In Disney's version, Mowgli felt more like a narrative device drawing the animals of the jungle together so we could hear their stories. In Serkis' hands, Mowgli is less of an ensemble player. His character development is central to the plot, especially in the second half.

The movie feels like a coming-of-age tale as the man-cub seeks to establish his identity as not quite human, not quite wolf -- simultaneously both and neither. It did come as a surprise when, bang in the middle of the film, the plot veered wildly off course from the familiar narrative the Disney films established atop Kipling's work.

Some may hate this startling divergence, but I enjoyed the sudden realization that I didn't know exactly what was going to happen next, especially after being lulled into a false sense of security by familiar opening scenes.


Despite the inevitable comparisons, both Disney's version and Serkis' reimagining are worth watching -- though I'd save Netflix's muddier, bloodier version until the little ones are past peak Disney age. Serkis has made a visually arresting film that Netflix is lucky to have gotten its hands on.
