You can practically feel the beating heart of the jungle in Jon Favreau's adaptation of "The Jungle Book," the most visually dazzling movie to hit theaters this year.They have not been sanitized to be cute or less threatening – not even the mama wolf Raksha (Lupita Nyong'o). They look like wild animals and for the most part act like wild animals. You're already on edge by the time the tiger Shere Khan (Idris Elba) enters the picture.Anyone with the vaguest memory of "The Jungle Book" will remember the characters the boy encounters on the way – the snake Kaa (Scarlett Johansson), the bear Baloo (Bill Murray) and the orangutan King Louie (Christopher Walken).
