Enjoy the imaginative story of a young girl and the Giant who introduces her to the wonders and perils of another world. The BFG is a Big Friendly Giant, so he2s nothing like the other inhabitants of Giant Country. Standing 24 feet tall with enormous ears and a keen sense of smell, he is endearingly dim-witted and likes to keep to himself.

I read the Roald Dahl book of the BFG when I was in Grade 2, and I still love reading it to this day. That’s seven years of reading about the giants, the BFG and all the characters in the story. I think that this was a good adaption of the book, however I think that the casting for the young girl could have been better; she was very unlike the girl I had in mind. But overall some parts were slower and it’s not the type of film that will make a big mark on me. Needless to say I recommend the book for sure and the BFG is my spirit animal!

It didn't really seem that great to me. It was interesting but I just really didn't enjoy it as much.

I wanted this adaptation of Roald Dahl's The BFG to be amazing, but it was just ok.

It is a great movie for the fans of Roald Dahl.
Finally Spielberg decided that he can afford to make a nice movie, and fulfill the last wish of his now dead friend and collaborator Melissa Mathison (keep to the plot of Roald Dahl's book, which is really perfect and doesn't need to be changed) and not some cheesy crowd pleaser.
Unfortunately movie directors often imagine themselves geniuses and change wonderful books into trash. It didn't happen this time, it was such a pleasant surprise for us:). The movie is maximally close to the book - my grammar nazi daughter was very watchful for the changes.:)
Actors are great, and Ruby Barnhill is perfect for the role of Sophie.

I didn't read the book and had no expectations of the film. I really, really liked it. :-)

This movie was supposedly a "big thing" when it came out in theaters. Well, I started watching it and it fell short of my expectations. As others have said, it was very slow at times that made me want to end it...the only reason I sat through it to be honest was because the younger kids seemed to enjoy it in the family. I personally think that the story line wasn't bad; the movie had a lot of potential, but it fell short. Wouldn't recommend; waste of time.
