‘Mowgli’ adds new, darker chapter to ‘Jungle Book’ saga

“Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle” fell victim to a larger predator — namely, Disney’s big-budget reboot of “The Jungle Book.” Yet if you admire Rudyard Kipling’s source material in its various forms, this darker, more distinctly British take directed by Andy Serkis –the acting world’s King of Motion Capture — is an intriguingly complementary movie, well worth the time.
