Watch this if you liked: “The Iron Giant”

The Good, the Bad and the Friendly Giant:

• Steven Spielberg's "BFG" is a wondrous delight, and Mark Rylance does a remarkable job in bringing the character to life.

• The film uses a massive amount of special effects and CGI, though they are beautiful and impressive, it might be too much to the point that it looks like a 3D animation even though it's a live-action film.

• Though the movie is inspirational, but it can be boring at times, and it is still not as good as Spielberg's past films or Roald Dahl's previous adaptations.

Trivia:

• The film has been in development for almost 25 years.
