From the imaginations of two of the world’s greatest storytellers, Roald Dahl and Steven Spielberg, THE BFG tells the extraordinary tale of a young girl named Sophie (played by Ruby Barnhill) and the Big Friendly Giant (played by Mark Rylance) who introduces her to the wonders and perils of Giant Country. Together they embark on a marvellous and buckswhashling adventure filled with snozzcumbers, dream jars, frobscottle and even the Queen! The mismatched pair form an unlikely friendship that will inspire enormous bravery in the BFG and give Sophie a taste of the family she dreams of.
Boring, the pace of the film was odd (we have go save the children, but let's have breakfast first) and they changed the ending from the book.
I walked into this knowing this didn't do well. Tried to keep an open mind, glad I just rented it.
I love this movie it's so good
One star is for Apple not the film. This is a reflection of Apple's failure to supply the film with subtitles for the hard of hearing. Prices on iTunes are a rip off anyway, and then to supply an inferior product is taking the mick.
Love this movie... My two children loved it too... Very funny in parts... A great all round film for all the family :)
Fell asleep watching. But the film has a xmas feel.
This film should be called The Drunken, Dyslexic Giant. Snozgumgers, flumpdazzles, gozsnoggers!! Every time he spoke we wanted to turn the film off. The very unlikable, little brat of a girl was just as annoying and we were rooting for her to be eaten by the other giants. Speilberg was has happened to you.
...with zero redeeming features. CGI special effects gone crazy. It's boring too.
You can buy this on amazon - bluray - for £14.99 and get a free digital download included. Are we being made to believe that the packaging costs a single pound?? I thought the whole point of digital downloads was to reduce the price of packaging materials and manufacturing, the wages of factory workers, the cost of shipping and logistics, the cost of actually copying the digital file to disc, even the cost of the disc itself! I loved the original story and film as a kid, still do now as an adult, and I got it free a year ago with the purchase of the observer newspaper. I'll wait twenty years and see if it pops up in the telegraph or something.
R.I.P Roald Dahl.
NO downoad should EVER cost £13.99!!! EVER!!!
I love this movie but the ending could have been better and maybe even longer.
So much for the claims that Spielberg has lost his touch! What a great film, the odd slow moment but overall really enjoyable. Rylance's giant is one of the best CGI characters I've ever seen, brilliantly rendered and played. Sophie isn't the annoying bratty character other directors might have presented and all other supporting players, real and otherwise, keep the spirit going throughout.
Kids will love this, and maybe adopt Dahl's wonderful gobbledygook, and adults should find it entertaining too...this one did
