Mini Review - Jungle

Jungle (out Nov 9) is based on a true story and follows a group of young explorers who get lost while trekking through jungles in South America. This film is a mixed bag. It makes great use of its claustrophobic setting and makes you wonder how you'd handle the same situation. On the other hand, there are unnecessary flashbacks and a few over-dramatised scenes (such as the finale itself). Grade: B.
