If you expected the Hollywood treatment in Junglee, with it being director Chuck Russell's first foray into India, you will feel let down. It is nowhere near movies like The Scorpion King which made Russell so well-known.
Sure, Mark Irwin's cinematography is easily world-class and the strongest feature of the movie. Lush green jungles, friendly elephants and impressively shot action sequences make Junglee remarkably pleasing to the eye. Russell and Irwin, at the very least, manage to portray a world that seems living and breathing. But it all goes downhill from there.
