This film tells the tale of a young girl, the Queen of England and a benevolent giant known as the BFG, who set out on an adventure to capture the evil, man-eating giants who have been invading the human world.
The BFG minimizes the darker elements of Roald Dahl's classic in favor of a resolutely good-natured, visually stunning, and largely successful family-friendly adventure.
Rylance gives a rueful rendition of the friendly giant.
As a character, the BFG is a wondrous creation, and Rylance does a magnificent job bringing him to life.
The BFG is a decent movie that has some stellar moments, but is overall pretty forgettable, and that's a downright shame.
In recent years, Spielberg has become a hit-and-miss filmmaker and this is closer to a "miss" than a "hit."
"The BFG" remembers what it's like to see with the eyes of a child.
It's just a shame some strong performances are stuck in such an uneven movie
Rylance has again brought something transformational to a Spielberg film. He gives the kind of performance you can't look away from, even with all the big-budget delights.
In Spielberg's grasp - mixing live-action and green screen, CG and motion-capture effects - the 1982 children's story becomes a large-scale tableau of impossibly wonderful images ...
The BFG is visually stunning and laugh-out-loud funny at times, but lacks the beloved bite of other Dahl film adaptations.
