Storyline Heading
A girl named Sophie encounters the Big Friendly Giant who, despite his intimidating appearance, turns out to be a kindhearted soul who is considered an outcast by the other giants because, unlike them, he refuses to eat children.
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Adventure Fantasy - While a fantasy aimed at the whole family, the pacing may be a bit slow for the youngest of children. There is no objectionable language, and there's no graphic violence, but there are some intense moments with giants that will be scary to kids; and there is a touch of crude humor.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Very Good It's a film about about dreaming and storytelling, parenting and childhood, nostalgia and pragmatism, and the necessity of standing up for yourself even when you know you can't win. But most of all, it's a film about two unlikely friends.

USA Today Full Review
Good With its lack of dramatic action, The BFG doesn't rise to the ranks of the director's family-friendly best, but it's still a frothbuggling, jumpsquiffling good time.

NY Post Full Review
Good ...a visually dazzling summer treat. ...well worth seeing for Rylance and some of the year's most beguiling screen images — from the BFG trying to camouflage himself in the London streetscape to an utterly mesmerizing visit to Dream Country that fans will be replaying for decades.

Rolling Stone Full Review
Good 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.
