Jon Favreau did an amazing job of making this live action film from the animation film. The CGI animals were fun to watch even though it is quite obvious they are CGI. However, CGI has come along way since it’s start. The famous voices behind the animals were definitely distinguishable. Still, I couldn’t get over the animals talking like humans or Mowgli wearing a loincloth. Neither of these made any sense since its live action. Sethi, the young actor who plays Mowgli, did a fine job in his role, but apart from being cute, I didn’t feel any special connection to his character. This film is worth a watch, but I still prefer the animated version.
