4.0 out of 5 stars DVD Special Features March 9, 2002
Format:DVD
Since the special features in "Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book" aren't mentioned in Amazon.com's usually thorough product info, here's a quick rundown:
- Widescreen (2.35:1) - Enhanced for 16 x 9 Televisions
- Audio Commentary With Director Stephen Sommers and Editor Bob Ducsay
- "The Making of Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book" Featurette
- Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound

All in all, a fine presentation of a fine family adventure film.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Adventure For The Family December 22, 2004
Format:DVD
Although "Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book" reminded me more of Tarzan than Mowgli, it is still a good film to watch with the family. Jason Scott Lee does a good job as Mowgli all grown up. Cary Elwes is the perfect British jerk and Sam Neill has a decent supporting role. Lena Heady and John Cleese have the most interaction with Mowgli, and they give the best performances out of the bunch.

The animal cast does a pretty good job as well. Some of the human/animal interaction can be written off as fake-looking, but the majority of the scenes using animatronic creatures look reasonably good.

Young children may be turned off by the deaths in this film, and of Kaa the python, who makes a couple of brief, but scary to a five year-old, appearances. Language, as well as dialogue as a whole, is kept relatively tame. Neill and Elwes let off a few slurs, but nothing worse than the "D" word.

Overall, a decent adventure flick for kids too young for Indiana Jones movies, but who love adventure tales. Another decent suggestion is "The Phantom," starring Billy Zane.

5.0 out of 5 stars SUPRISINGLY BRILLIANT June 11, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
I walked into the cinema ready to sleep through this one but an amazing thing happened , a Disney epic became one of my all time favorites thanks to the exellent direction from Stephen Sommers. He bends the rulrs of the average Disney movie and makes it suprisingly violent (i.e quiksand moment and the room filling up with salt scene). It's an adventure with an Indiana Jones feel to it and the acting is great and Cary Ewles is briliantly evil as the bad guy. Terrific!

5.0 out of 5 stars ReMaster in Blu-Ray ASAP August 7, 2012
Format:DVD
I love this adaptation and have watched it many times. Unfortunately the VCR is dead and I own a PS3 now. So when will Disney remaster this for Blu-Ray. I bet it will sell more than all the VSH and DVD's combined. I like the Disney cartoons but they have some gem action films like this I can hardly wait to see. Hurry up Disney, what are you waiting for?

5.0 out of 5 stars Superlative--Best movie of 1994 June 22, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
The only reason I am giving this film 5 stars is that I can not give it anything higher. This film is far and away one of my all time favorite movies. I must have seen it at least a dozen times in theatres. I stumbled on JB totally by accident. On Christmas day 1994 I went to see Interview with the Vampire. Only to find that it had been pulled. Not wanting to make my trip to the theatre a waste of time. I decided to watch the Jungle Book. I braced myself for a silly childrens film. Instead I found a moving story, fit for all ages, about pure love, racism and colonialism and adventure.
The Jungle Book is about Mowgli (Jason Scott Lee) who, after a terrible mis-hap as a child, ends up growing up in the Jungle communicating with the animals. As an adult he becomes re-aquainted with his childhood sweetheart Kitty (Lena Heady) the daughter of a British officer(Sam Neal) in Victorian India and learns to become "civilized" again. Unfortunetly Mowgli crosses Kitty's then love interest (Cary Elwes). And a bunch of stuff happens which I will not go into for giving away the plot.
I will say this though this is really, really an amazing movie. The chemistry between Jason and Lena is unbelivable. It really is what love is all about. Not once do they utter the "L" word towards each other but in every scene they are together you can see the bond and affection they have for each other. Also (keeping in mind that this is a PG movie) It is so refreshing to see a couple in love without them getting physical. Cary Elwes as the movies villain is really effective and subtle. He really is slick and charming-a real cad.
I would strongly recommend this film to lovers of the above.
This film became such an obessession of mine that I wrote out the novelization just to get it out of my system. Get this movie, it is a descision that you will not regret!

5.0 out of 5 stars WHY IS THIS MOVIE SO EXPENSIVE? July 11, 2011
Format:DVD
I'm sorry, but look at the price(s) for this $90 for a new copy?! $35 for a used copy!?!
I love this movie.
This review is not meant to be insightful at all, let alone helpful. I just needed to point these facts out.

2.0 out of 5 stars but not as good as the Disney version of The Jungle Book
I thought it would be more kid friendly because of the live animals. It's not. It is an ok movie, but not as good as the Disney version of The Jungle Book.

When you are ready for more than the animated Disney Jungle Book, this is what you want. Due to the evil of certain people and the violence shown, it is not for children. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable.
I know the critics didn't like this one very much, but I've enjoyed it. I had the VHS version and have been looking for the DVD for a long time and finally found a good copy.

Greedy A-holes
Disney stopped publishing this movie a long time ago and basically forgot about it, so the chances of a Blu-ray releases is very slim, in fact Disney is planning on making a remake, which is why this movie is so valuable, the price is just going to keep on going up.
