Loosely inspired by Kipling’s stories, here, a grown Mowgli, raised by wolves, reunites with a childhood friend, and attempts to find his way in society (one  formed by an imperialist culture). Superb action adventure fantasy. Several exciting and terrifying sequences including runs from tigers and baddies being buried alive. Lee does a credible job of selling the fish out of water aspect to his character. There have been several excellent adaptations of The Jungle Book, and this is definitely one of them.
