Naturally scared at first, the young girl soon realizes that the 24-foot behemoth is actually quite gentle and charming. As their friendship grows, Sophie’s presence attracts the unwanted attention of Bloodbottler, Fleshlumpeater and other giants. After traveling to London, Sophie and the BFG must convince Queen Elizabeth to help them get rid of all the bad giants once and for all.
Plot: The BFG is no ordinary bone-crunching giant. He is far too nice and jumbly. It’s lucky for Sophie that he is. Had she been carried off in the middle of the night by the Bloodbottler, or any of the other giants—rather than the BFG—she would have soon become breakfast. When Sophie hears that the giants are flush-bunking off to England to swollomp a few nice little chiddlers, she decides she must stop them once and for all. And the BFG is going to help her!

“The only element of the entire production that inspires any kind of wonder is just how far from a satisfying adaptation the film proves to be…”

The animated ’89 version of _The BFG_ was a staple of my youth, so naturally I was excited for a Steven Spielberg redo. Unfortunately, I don’t think the tale lends itself well to the live action format. That, or the hands making this piece were unable to concentrate the narrative to where it went. In either case, the end product is a film with many tiny endearing moments of nostalgia that at no point come together to create a laudable whole.
_Final rating:★★ – Had some things that appeal to me, but a poor finished product._
First off, I’m not a huge children’s movie fan, but this one was just so charming and cute I couldn’t help but like it. The real star is the BFG. The funny way he talks and the emotions on his face really made the movie for me. The little girl does a pretty good job as well.
This isn’t the kind of movie you watch for the story. It’s simple enough, but does the job. It’s more for the interaction between the girl and the giant, and in that department the movie delivers. Sure there were some childish jokes, but there were plenty of other moments that made me laugh out loud without involving body functions.
I don’t get why so many people hated on this movie. Where they expecting Schindler’s List? This wasn’t that kind of Spielberg Movie. It was more about the interaction of a child and magical friend, akin to ET – and while it may not be quite as good, I still got a lot of enjoyment out of it. If you don’t think you’re going to be a stick in the mud about it, go ahead and give it a watch. You might end up being surprised at how much you like it, just like I was.
Needs Better Editing But There’s a Number of Positives Here
I’m also quite surprised by all the negativity thrown at this film. Yes, it does have its slow spots and could certainly use better editing, but it can be quite wondrous, humorous, and has some important messages to relay as well.
I thought the scenes with the Queen (Penelope Wilton) were highly imaginative, funny, and warm-hearted. Both Mark Rylance and young Ruby Barnhill were excellent in their lead roles.
As others have noted, this is not the best Spielberg film ever, but perhaps over time it will gain more favor. The late Melissa Mathis wrote the screenplay, as she did for Spielberg’s classic “E.T.”. It’s based, of course, on the great Roald Dahl book.
All in all, I agree with those that don’t think this movie deserves the pummeling it’s getting, and I feel there’s lots to like here, for those that want to give it a chance.
