Jungle Master (2013/Lionsgate DVD)

Picture: B Sound: B Extras: C Main Feature: B

When Rainie (voice of Victoria Justice) runs away from home, she finds herself transported to a jungle world where she meets Blue (Josh Peck) and his adoptive human grandfather (Christopher Lloyd). Blue teaches and shows Rainie his world, but unfortunately, they are followed by the villainous Boss who have plans for his 'new' world. Now it is up to Rainie and Blue to protect their world from the humans who would harm it in Xu Kerr's CGI animated Jungle Master (2013).

Rainie runs away from home when her mother forgets it's her birthday, but in a freak accident she suddenly is transported to the beautiful but dangerous Jungle World. Blue saves her life and his grandfather, they soon become fast friends. Blue has been adopted by his human grandfather, but then learn about his past and true heritage and awakens his power (to control the planet's energy and plants). Blue and Rainie must then use their new found friendship and power to protect their world from the greedy humans invaders.

This film was like a mix of The Incredibles and Avatar with two kids in an alien world saving it from the humans. While its CGI not as good as Pixar, it was decent, but they could of done a bit better with the facial expressions and lip movement. This turned out very well and is worth your time and that of your children. David Spade, Jane Lynch and Jon Lovitz are among those who also supply the voices.

The anamorphically enhanced transfer and lossy Dolby Digital 5.1 mix are as good as they can be for this format, while extras include voice recording at the studio, Minuscule Bonus Episodes and trailer gallery.
