Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt star as Captain Frank Wolff and Dr. Lily Houghton in Disney's Jungle Cruise.

The movie represents Disney's latest attempt to make a franchise out of one of its oldest theme park attractions, Jungle Cruise.

Just days before it is set to premiere on July 30, 2021, Disney sent out review copies for critics from around the world.

It's safe to say that not everyone was happy to go along for the ride. The good news is that some critics actually found the movie entertaining though.

The bad news is that there is a clear divide between critics who liked Jungle Cruise and those who didn't.

With an estimated budget of $200 million, Jungle Cruise will need to at least double its costs with revenue if Disney is to consider a sequel.
