This ain't the Disney version for sure. I think this is much closer to the original source material with a few minor changes. I have to admit the scenes of the monkey people kidnapping Mowgli was scary and Kaa was as well. Benedict Cumberbatch as Shere Kahn was unsettling to say the least. I do feel sorry for Bhoot the albino wolf pup. Poor wee fella winds up as the hunter's many trophies. I'm not one of those daft PETA members but I like animals and was glad to see the elephant dispatch Lockwood just the same. Glad they didn't go with a King Louie character in this version. And thank goodness no bluddy songs either. Lol.
