‘Jungle Cruise’ Review: Amazon Subprime

Like Vogon poetry, the plot of Disney’s “Jungle Cruise” is largely incomprehensible and intended to control you.

The success of the overall project is more important than whether the female protagonist is a hero in the end.

British botanist Lily, portrayed by actress Emily Blunt, is tired of the scientific establishment in London insulting her.

Despite the fact that the Great War is still raging, Lily wants to journey to the Amazon jungle to obtain a flower that is purported to be able to cure all illnesses.

Lily (Jack Whitehall), her snooty brother (Jake Whitehall), and a variety of digital threats are soon on their way upriver after riverboat skipper Frank (Dwayne Johnson) is recruited.

With its swarms of poisonous snakes, cannibalistic dogs, and maggoty supernatural beings rattling the frame, “Jungle Cruise” displays a phoney exoticism.

The language is rote (“The natives speak of this place with dread”), everything moves at breakneck speed, and the background noise vies for our attention like a frantic dancer.

Edgar Ramirez portrays Aguirre, a deteriorating Spanish conquistador, while Jesse Plemons plays a nasty German prince. Werner Herzog is obviously ecstatic.

“Jungle Cruise” is less directed than pummelling by a relentless score and a small town’s worth of digital artists to a stiff peak before falling into a mushy heap.

According to Frank, “everything you see is out to get you.” I think it’s really just wanting your money.
