Jungleland treads such a tried and tested path that ultimately it suffers from being too predictable. From the two underdog blue-collar siblings looking for a final payday, to the gangsters whose pocket they're in, there's nothing we haven't seen before. Yet despite the familiarity, the story -- which essentially takes the form of a road trip -- remains gripping, even if you're fairly sure you know where the final destination will be.

The film is also helped by strong performances across the board from three British actors, who not only manage to nail their U.S. accents, but also provide layered performances that give the film some much needed depth. O'Connell gives a subdued performance as Lion, a man who is also capable of brutal violence. In contrast, Hunnam's Stanley is the animated, happy-go-lucky older brother, whose reckless behavior gets them into increasingly dangerous situations. This includes being forced to ferry the sharp tongued, yet deeply sympathetic Sky -- brilliantly played by Jessica Barden -- from one gangster to another. Get past the cliched storytelling and you'll find a hard-punching -- if not knockout -- drama.

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
