      Lily plans to travel across the Amazon rainforest, in search of an ancient tree that holds the power to heal any illness and wound, in hopes to change the future of medicine. The film also stars Jack Whitehall as Lily's younger brother. Meanwhile, Édgar Ramírez, Jesse Plemons and Quim Gutiérrez will be seen as the antagonists.

      Variety's critic Courtney Howard called the film "A thrill ride you'll want to see repeatedly." Her tweet read, "#JungleCruise is an epic adventure - a throwback blockbuster we've been missing, a la THE MUMMY (99), PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN, THE AFRICAN QUEEN & ROMANCING THE STONE rolled into 1. A thrill ride you'll want to see repeatedly. The most fun you'll have at the movies all Summer."

      Meanwhile, Collider's Perri Nemiroff said the film's cast is charming together. "#JungleCruise legit feels like a theme park ride - and I like rides quite a bit. Had a good time with the mythology and the action, but the biggest winner of the bunch here is the cast chemistry. Emily Blunt, Dwayne Johnson and Jack Whitehall are mighty charming together," his tweet read.

      Screenrant's Rob Keyes wrote, "I watched #JungleCruise today. @TheRock's been saying for two years that it's inspired by Indiana Jones, Romancing the Stone, and African Queen, and that's exactly the way it plays. It's super fun, with lots of heart, and after the first 10 minutes you'll be locked in. More plz."
