Trivia

The baseball radio broadcast Barbara is listening to in her room is from Oct. 26, 1996 and is John Sterling's, the Yankee announcer's play by play of the last out of the 1996 World Series. See more »

Goofs

The English girl claims to be from Leeds, England, so should sound lower class northern, instead she has an accent that sounds way more like she's grown up in the Home Counties. For those unfamiliar with this, she should sound more like the new female Doctor Who or the first Doctor of the new series, but instead she sounds more like she should be finding lions at the back of the wardrobe or casting spells with Hermione Granger.

A great movie but with a wrong marketing campaign
24 March 2018 | by tmpsvitaSee all my reviews

It is not the special effects, although interesting and visually not exceptional but discrete, it is not the extremely suggestive and curated cinematography, as well as original and effective, it is not the directing, intelligent and well studied; in short, it is not the technical sector, however remarkable, that makes this "I Kill Giants" a great movie, but it is something more, something that is more in depth, are the true and sincere feelings that are perceived for a good part of the movie and that make it special despite being almost a genre movie. A movie that proves itself surprisingly mature, even if its appearance says the opposite, and aware of the path and the goals it wants to achieve; this is felt in different scenes that, for this, effect and in different dialogues taken from a screenplay that is not original but that can raise many questions to the viewer during the film, doing so, even if they do not always receive a gratifying answer, this last will be completely immersed in the atmosphere and spirit of the story and can only be involved in it. Also you can very easily get in tune with the protagonist, a young girl who stands out from the many who have already seen in many other films similar to this, thanks to its unique character that makes the character curious and bizarre and, important and rare thing, never predictable, this means that the viewer never loses interest in it. For the rest what to say, there is Zoe Saldana, good as usual, and a really good Imogen Poots, thanks to a role in which she identified herself perfectly. Unfortunately, the film was, nonetheless, anticipated by a marketing campaign that between trailer and poster deceives the public, presenting it as a film that is not, for this reason will be many who, waiting for a pure fantasy, will remain a bit 'disappointed.
