Jungle Cruise

Jungle Cruise ★★★½

Who would ever guess Disney could blend Metallica, the WWE, punny jokes, and an assistant to the devil who wears Prada all together into one movie? The musical refrain from Metallica's ballad "Nothing Else Matters" is clearly sampled during the opening credits and then again later during an expository scene. I kept wanting to hear James Hetfield break out singing the lyrics to the band's hit single. I was thrilled they utilized electric guitars and drums for its second music cue in the movie. Upon reflection, knowing the specific song being utilized here, I would view it as a potential spoiler for the backstory of a major character. I truly enjoyed the movie.
