I will admit that a couple of weeks ago I actually went and saw Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. Was it spectacular? No. But was it entertaining? Hell Yes. Mostly because of Ruby Roundhouse! Karen Gillian is my new weakness.
So I get why families have gone out of their way to see it, even though it doesn’t come close to the original.) That said, I don’t think I would go out of my way to criticise the movie to the Rock himself, because while he’s a nice guy, he’s also the size of a tank.
It all kicked off when a Twitter user by the name of James McMahon (no relation to Vince) decided to drop this on Twitter:
I went to see the new Jumanji. FUCK THE NEW JUMANJI. Here’s a spoiler. There is no way a character in a video game would lose a life, then be respawned still in possession of the item required to win. That’s some bullshit. What say you @TheRock? Otherwise it was quite good

Damn, James goes hard. But the Rock went harder. Check out what Mr. Dwayne Johnson himself had to say:
Actually my friend, in the JUMANJI Lore Handbook, it clearly states in article 72 of section 7, that “any character who loses a life, shall return to their original state with any item they possessed at the time of their demise”. So kindly go f*ck yourself James.

Never mess with a man that looks like a boulder.
Oh, and in case you’ve been living under The Rock (see what I did there) here is what all the fuss is about;
