Adventure . Family . Fantasy

The BFG is no ordinary bone-crunching giant. He is far too nice and jumbly. It's lucky for Sophie that he is. Had she been carried off in the middle of the night by the Bloodbottler, or any of the other giants—rather than the BFG—she would have soon become breakfast. When Sophie hears that the giants are flush-bunking off to England to swollomp a few nice little chiddlers, she decides she must stop them once and for all. And the BFG is going to help her!

More Info:
  • Robbie Collin

    It’s a weighty technical accomplishment – the extraordinary detailed motion-capture technology alone, which stretches Rylance’s human performance to giant-sized proportions, is river-straddling bounds beyond anything you’ve seen before.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Peter Debruge

    No matter how fantastical the tale (and it gets pretty out-there at points), this splendid Steven Spielberg-directed adaptation makes it possible for audiences of all ages to wrap their heads around one of the unlikeliest friendships in cinema history, resulting in the sort of instant family classic “human beans” once relied upon Disney to deliver.

    Every few seconds there's an image that delights for delight's sake. Full Review
  • Nikola Grozdanovic

    The BFG exceeds expectations thanks to Rylance’s performance, and joyously expounds the essence of a cherished children’s tale in all of its imaginative glory.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Justin Chang

    Despite the compromises that typically attend a studio-made family entertainment — especially one that has been adapted, however lovingly, from a sharper, edgier piece of source material — The BFG also possesses a rich and unmistakably Spielbergian understanding of the loneliness of childhood, and of the enduring consolations that friendship and imagination can offer. Not unlike its title character, the movie can be cloddish and clumsy, but it is also a thing of wily cleverness and lithe, surprising grace.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    The BFG has fizz to spare. It’s an effervescent charmer.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    This ambitious blend of live action and computer animation runs the risk of being overwhelming and sterile, but it turns out to be a pleasing and sweet-natured adventure thanks in large part to Spielberg’s big, friendly secret weapon: Mark Rylance, as the BFG himself.

    Time Full Review
  • Dave Calhoun

    Flaws aside, this is a superior, inventive kids' film, and one that's bound to make Rylance's giant a favourite with younger audiences.

    Time Out London Full Review
  • Peter Bradshaw

    It seems pointless to say that the big friendly giant is the star of The BFG. But casting has never been more crucial. A typically distinctive, eccentric and seductive star performance from Mark Rylance absolutely makes this movie what it is.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Kimberley Jones

    A lauded Shakespearean actor and adapter who won an Oscar last year for his collaboration with director Steven Spielberg on "Bridge of Spies," Rylance portrays the body (via motion-capture) and certainly soul of this gentle giant. In his mournful, lyrical cadence, he makes poetry out of the BFG’s gobbledygook command of English.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    And tell me if I'm nuts, but another distraction: Doesn't the BFG bear a striking resemblance to George W. Bush?

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    A visually dazzling summer treat.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Calvin Wilson

    If The BFG is unlikely to become a cultural phenomenon of the magnitude of “E.T.,” it’s a film that casts a unique and often mesmerizing spell. But it’s also a bit too talky, particularly in the early going, and Spielberg lets numerous opportunities for humor slip by.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Moira Macdonald

    Much of The BFG, perhaps a little too much, is devoted to watching Sophie madly scurry away from the giants; it’s a beautifully rendered chase but still just a chase. When the movie slows down to allow Rylance and Barnhill to converse, it finds its magic.

    The Seattle Times Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    Too eccentric to be a massive box-office hit yet too mainstream for a cult following; it nevertheless deserves to be seen. Mostly, it works as a singular and slightly wobbly mash-up of two creative artists and their differing sensibilities, and it benefits greatly from the contributions of one brilliant actor and one little girl. Maybe I’m squibbling, but I think it’s pretty delumptious.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    For special effects alone, there's no problem: They're spectacular. And there's no faulting Mark Rylance, a newly-minted Oscar winner for Spielberg's Bridge of Spies, whose motion-capture performance as a 24-foot giant is both subtly nuanced and truly monumental.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    The movie becomes inventive in new ways and even cheery. It’s a true delight.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    For once, underneath all the motion capture folderol, the key performance really does feel like a full, real, vital performance.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Brian Truitt

    John Williams composes a sprawling, effervescent score that, while not his best, certainly captures the musical magic that makes his partnership with Spielberg so special.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Christopher Gray

    The film, full of such quietly inventive visual magic, is perfectly content to simply revel in the stuff dreams are made of.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Tim Grierson

    As appealing and likeable as The BFG is, the movie doesn’t seem particularly groundbreaking or daring when it comes from Spielberg, who is revisiting his major themes here without necessarily reinventing them.

    Screen International Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    The result is that the wonderment, with nothing serious at risk, seems lackluster.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    Spielberg doesn't pull heart strings as much as push the right buttons, dutiful to an undercooked story. The BFG begins like a classic fairy tale and ends with helicopters and fart jokes, a tonal dissonance that is Dahl's fault, not the film's.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Chris Nashawaty

    Parents looking for a 21st-century E.T. to share with their kids are bound to be a bit disappointed even as their eyes are dazzled.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Eric Kohn

    An eager crowdpleaser from one of the world's greatest crowdpleasers, it gets the job done and nothing more.

    indieWIRE Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Contrasting The BFG to "E.T." does the new film a disservice, and it’s mediocre enough that it doesn’t need the comparison to emphasize its shortcomings. In recent years, Spielberg has become a hit-and-miss filmmaker and this is closer to a “miss” than a “hit.”

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Kate Taylor

    The movie trots pleasantly along, but it never races.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    Roald Dahl’s beloved ad­ven­ture tale about a brave little girl who befriends the titular Big Friendly Giant, finds Steven Spielberg in his natural element of childlike enchantment, yet also strangely out of step, his trusted sense of narrative propulsion and pacing occasionally failing him in a saggy, draggy second act.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    So The BFG isn’t the “BFD” it might have been. Lovely as it often is, it’s a one hour and fifty-seven minute long kids’ movie designed to be watched, at home, with interruptions. And believe me, you’ll know it.

    Movie Nation Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    In short, The BFG seems perfectly self-sufficient in its bookness, in no need of the lavishly cinematic bear hug Steven Spielberg bestows upon it here.

    Slate Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    A labor of love that sometimes wears its love too laboriously, but a surfeit of rapture isn’t the worst thing in a movie.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    While there is some magic here, it’s not the transportive experience it might have been.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Joe Dziemianowicz

    Fun and likable, occasionally even delightful.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • John Bleasdale

    There are moments of real wonder and delight and Quentin Blake's original illustrations are occasionally glimpsed in the set ups. This isn't an epic of visual wizardry and there's zero irony or clever wit. Rather, Spielberg's latest is an old-fashioned children's tale told simply and with plenty of heart.

    CineVue Full Review
  • Allison Shoemaker

    Imagine all the best parts of E.T. (written, like this film, by the late Melissa Mathison) and all the worst parts of Hook, and you have a pretty solid picture of what it’s like to spend two hours with The BFG.

    Consequence of Sound Full Review
  • A.A. Dowd

    There’s no doubt that Spielberg has made The BFG his own, drowning everything in the tinkle of a familiar John Williams score and even managing to incorporate a kid in a red coat. But maybe this is one story that didn’t need to become his own, or really anyone else’s. State-of-the-art special effects are no substitute for Dahl’s inviting prose, for the dreams he blew into adolescent imaginations.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Rory O'Connor

    Nobody could fault the detail of the art department’s work here, but there is an odd sluggishness to the imagery, as if the whole film is playing a half-measure behind. This proves troublesome for any of the larger-than-life action sequences, but even more so with the comic timing.

    The Film Stage Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    There are delights on display, but not many surprises...The BFG is a different kind of movie, and Mr. Rylance’s face and body have been enhanced and distorted by digital sorcery, but his unique blend of gravity and mischief imbues his fanciful character with a dimension of soul that the rest of the movie lacks.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    Technically impressive but listless and tedious.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Richard Brody

    The film's technical achievements may be complex, but its emotions are facile.

    The New Yorker Full Review
  • Bilge Ebiri

    The film suffers from the one thing that Spielberg films almost never suffer from — stasis. He’s made, essentially, a "hangout" movie, one in which we’re supposed to luxuriate among the characters, but Spielberg isn’t a director who thrives in that kind of environment.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    The film represents the director in a more pensive, even philosophical vein, less interested in propulsive cinema and more reflective about what would seem to mean the most to him—dreams, and the ability to make them come true. This is what The BFG is about but, unfortunately, that is basically all it’s about and by a considerable measure too explicitly and single-mindedly so.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Matt Singer

    The BFG’s sluggish pacing will test even older viewers’ attention spans. The visuals are potent, but the story is never urgent. The crux of the movie, inspiring people to dream, is a noble, beautiful thing. But not when you put them to sleep in the process.
