I saw the 2D version with Dolby Atmos yesterday morning with only a few other people in attendance. I was curious about the box office on this but evidently it's doing fine.
This version has a darker mood probably more in line with the original story and the screenplay that Disney rejected in 1967. Bill Murray and Christopher Walken seemed to be having a good time with their voice-overs. The boy who played Mowgli was okay, seemed a little awkward at first but got into the part as the movie progressed. This film does not have the bright colors of the animation but rather the color drained look so popular nowadays, although there are parts that have more color to them, a conscious choice by the director methinks. I wondered how they would incorporate the Sherman Brothers songs into this live action version and for the most part they worked. The CGI was outstanding, very lifelike. Parts of the movie may be too intense for very young children. 8/10.
