    Winstead was the perfect choice to lead this movie. Winstead as Kate does look cooler than cool. Kate delivers some high velocity action, even if the premise isn't exactly new. Even Harrelson leaves an impression despite his limited screentime, and this is a great breakthrough performance for the young Martineau. The flashy Tokyo setting of the main body of the film is chaotic and alluring. There’s one car chase sequence that looks so impossible that it again thrusts you into a video game mindset, while the soundtrack, often accompanying a wild fight sequence, is pumping and frenetic.

    It remains as effective and brilliant today on every level as it was upon release, and just gets better with age. It’s a romance, it’s an action-adventure, and it’s a chase. It’s a war story, it’s a spiritual journey, and it’s a coming-of-age tale. It’s about friends and family, and it’s about victory and defeat. It has ice worlds, cloud cities, and swamp creatures. It’s funny and it’s thrilling, it’s sad and it’s shocking. It reveals most of the important lessons about the Force, and opens up several great mysteries that drive the series. It is the definitive Star Wars movie.

    As unlikely a pair as they may seem, Blunt and Johnson are electric together. The hilarious zingers and waggish interplay between Johnson and Blunt make the movie far more entertaining than a typical action-adventure film. Whitehall steals scenes throughout the film as one of the most colorful and sympathetic characters. The special effects are a mixed bag, which is surprising for such a major release. James Newton Howard's score is really good. Jungle Cruise runs about 15 minutes too long. I could argue that the film functions better as a romantic comedy than a pure action/adventure excursion.
