Watch: The BFG 2016 123movies, Full Movie Online – Ten-year-old Sophie is in for the adventure of a lifetime when she meets the Big Friendly Giant. Naturally scared at first, the young girl soon realizes that the twenty-four-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 travelling to London, Sophie and the BFG must convince Queen Elizabeth to help them get rid of all of 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!

**Little Sophie’s giant adventure.**
I did not dislike it, but I thought it was not creative enough. I had seen the British animation and this one retained the same story. Of course, which was originally from the book, but nothing new other than a decent computer graphics. I liked the performance of the little girl who had played the Sophie. She was the only live character until the final stage where more joins her. So she was wonderful along with Mark Rylance’s CGI role.
Straight to the point, the adventure begins right away. Sophie, the ten year old orphan girl was snatched by a giant named BFG after she witnessed him wandering on the street through her dorm room window on one midnight. Fearing she might expose the giant’s existence, so he had to take her with him to his country. Then there they become very close, but a new threat arises when the other giants suspect of a human’s existence in their enclosure. So fighting them, followed by a permanent solution to menace caused by them is what narrated in the rest.
It was like Peter Jackson’s ‘The Lovely Bones’ for Steven Spielberg, I mean the films that did not work for them. I anticipated a major surge in this by the family film specialist Spielber. Because I usually love his film, tell me who won’t. From children to adults, his films targets all ages. But if you had seen the old version, then you will lose half the interest. That’s definitely won’t be the same for the kids, they will love it. There’s no harm for watching it once, so go for it.
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.
Well intended, good looking but highly uninvolving movie
Greetings from Lithuania.
“The BFG” (2016) is probably the most weak film of the great Steven Spielberg I’ve ever seen. It is great looking movie, but only because of a very good special effects. Acting by Mark Rylance was also pretty good and… that is basically all the best i can say about “The BFG”. Story which is based on a book I’ve never read and and will never do is OK – i do believe that story whatever it is can be done into a good / great film – it is not about story, it is about everything else and the most important – script. In case of “The BFG” script isn’t good. At all. I kinda lost my interest in this movie since like after first ~20 min. There wasn’t anything really interesting, and ye, by saying nothing interesting when you see giants… Directing wasn’t good as well i think because movie dragged like hell – it finished it in like ~3,4 days. Acting by Ruby Barnhill was more annoying then anything resembling to a natural performance. And i know i do sound like a hater here but trust me – this is one of the rare cases when you see all money spent on special effects, but there isn’t anything good to see.
Overall, “The BFG” is a huge disappointment for me. When i first heard about this movie by Spielberg with the great Mark Rylance i kinda expected it to be a fantastic experience. After seeing it, it kinda hurts that this became Spielberg worst.
