Rating: 3/5 -- Heavy going for all its beauty, but still superior to Disney's own live-action adaptation with Jason Scott Lee. Full Review

Purists may worry that the film strays a little from Kipling's book, but the high production values, exotic locales and a grand sense of adventure ensure that this classic family fantasy film stands the test of time with ease. Full Review

When the animals are talking their own language and roaming their improvised jungle near Los Angeles, Jungle Book is as absorbing as a behind-the-scenes trip to the zoo. But when they converse in Kipling's English, the result is painful. Full Review

The spirit of the original is missing and the whole film despite the lavish nature of its production is unsatisfying. Full Review
Monthly Film Bulletin

The color is strikingly vivid and some of the individual scenes have natural charm. But the film, as a whole, is ostentatious. Full Review

As directed by Zoltan Korda, the fiction takes secondary place to the highly interesting and sometimes amazing views of jungle animals in the brilliance of colored photography. Full Review

Mowgli's daring exploits take him from the fabulous bejewelled secret City Of The Dead Kings to a final encounter with his mortal enemy - Shere-Khan the Killer Tiger! This film's brilliantly colorful cinematography, music and art direction all earned Academy Award nominations.
