Movie Review: The BFG (2016 Film)

The BFG or the Big Friendly Giant is a fantasy adventure film about a friendly giant who befriend a girl and considered outcast by fellow giants because he refused to eat humans. It is based on 1982 novel written by Roald Dahl.


Overall, what is obviously seen here is its computer generated imagery and it was perfect to make it appealing to the children. There's almost nothing to complain with in terms of this department's work.

For the story, we can say that it really sticked to the story from the novel with almost no added subplots just to make an appeal to the older ones who have read the book before or seen the previous film with the same name.

The parts that were confusing were that there no explanation on why the BFG has taken the girl just to protect her from other giants. This part was taken from the novel itself but it could have been explained or fixed by Steven Spielberg.

Mark Rylance and Ruby Barnhill were commendable for their performance in this film even though the subplots were bit confusing. Although Mark Rylance's character was friendly, they should have it more appealing to children or would look even friendlier.
