      Kevin Carr 7M Pictures None of this can excuse the bad voice acting of Bronson Pinchot, who provides the voice for the title character. Let's just say the man peaked with Balki and be done with it. Rated: 2.5/5 Sep 28, 2005 Full Review Read all reviews

      teone l As long as it is in danish with english subs, it's great. Lots of nostalgia. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Just as mediocre as the first in the series. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member Where is Jungle Jack/Jungledyret 1? Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Audience Member This is a review for the original Danish film, 'Jungledyret Hugo 2.' Not the piece of trash American version 'Go Hugo Go!.' This is overall a fantastic movie. It mixes comedy with drama and has great music throughout the entire movie. The jazz-style theme song is by far one of the greatest songs from a soundtrack I have ever heard. This movie has a great plot, great action, great suspense, and a great ending. This movie is one of the most underrated movies I have ever watched, and I hope that people can respect the original version instead of the American version. I give this movie a 9/10, or a 90%. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Audience Member [B]What is it about?[/B] Hugo is once again kidnapped and brought to Copenhagen where he is suppose to be a movie star(pet) with a beautiful female actor. It's not easy to tam a wild animal, but for food many are willing do anything. Rita, Hugo's friend from the first movie, get the news that Hugo's back in town. She rush to rescue him, but suddenly Hugo don't want to escape from the humans who gives him food. Rita remind him that he's a wild animal and should be free. She walk away from him, and Hugo sit behind his bars and think about what he should do. [B]Technical view[/B] This is a great Danish animated adventure created 1996. The animation is not far as good as the first movie, which was more like Don Bluth's movies. But it's colorful and living. But you do have a mix of good animation and bad. You have places were Rita is suddenly drawn in a different style. Overall the animation is nice and I love it, still if it got some flaws. The music is fantastic! It's a nice jazz ballade on the intro and it keeps going though the movie! The small musical numbers are also nice. But here I'm talking about the Danish version...not the English. [B]What's the difference between the English version and the Danish?[/B] It's a saying when you make News-TV: "You can send anything, as long as you have good sound". This is very true for this movie. The English version is far from the original Danish version. They have redone the title screen, the music and added stupid sound effects to the characters. Rita is sighting all the time, which is not happening one single time in the Danish version. You can read the feelings to the characters in their face, what's the smeggy point of give them stupid sound effects which the original don't have? Mirmax... if you are importing a movie and translating, do it justice. Mirmax have imported this movie so bad that I would claim it's a different movie then the original. I'm going to give you some reasons: 1. Dubbing: Okay, it works, but only so you can understand what's going on. 2. Translation: Did they read the Danish script, or did they just guess what was happening in the movie? This translation is wrong in to many Key points of the movie that it's altering the meaning of it! I understand Danish and therefor knows this. 3. Music: Where the heck is the original music?! Where is the Jazz theme! Who turned on that old synth?? 4. Cutting: They have actually cut down scenes ...why? There is a clip were a femal character, fully clothed, walks a bit sexy, and it's cut away. Why? So what should you do? If you got the money, get the english version, so you understand the plot, then get the Danish version so you get a good voice over. Danish :fresh: English :rotten: Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Read all reviews
