I Kill Giants: Not the tour-de-force I expected
I hadn't planned on watching this anytime soon but pushed it up my watchlist because it was recommended to me.
Within the first 10-15 minutes I had that dull aching feeling inside me, it felt like I was watching Bridge to Terabithia (2007) again and that brought two things to mind.
1) Yes, I'm really going to enjoy this
2) Ahhhh crap this is going to make me cry
The movie starts strong and our little leading lady does a fantastic job of portraying our smart, forthright and odd protagonist.
Trouble is it begins to unknot early and go in directions that I didn't expect and really didn't want it to.
The movie has it's Bridge To Terabithia emotional buildup, but when it arrives its underwhelming and very poorly constructed.
Though I appreciate the effort that went into the writing I think the movie simply doesn't get it across very well. Perhaps it needed more time to develop or maybe those behind the camera simply weren't skilled enough to handle a story of this magnitude.
I'm not saying I Kill Giants is bad, it just should have been a hell of a lot better.
Cringe inducing in parts
Finale should have been a lot more emotional than it was
Whole movie just falls apart and doesn't meet its potential
Things I Learnt From This Movie:
I can only assume the book is better
Are we just supposed to pretend the pyromania thing didn't happen?
