4.5 out of 10 A charming movie
David from Dublin, 14 Jul 2008
This is a delightful and brilliant adaptation of Roald Dahl's The BFG. The animation is wonderful, fluid and full of charm, the story carries itself nicely and brings the characters to truly imaginative places of almost childlike wonder, the characters are sympathetic and lovable, and the movie finishes up very nicely indeed. Highly recommended.

Elaine from Kerry, 20 Jul 2010
Good but very different to the book which the children found disappointing, being huge Dahl fans.

What's it about....
This beautifully animated film will captivate any adult or child who has ever been touched by the magical stories of Roald Dahl. The fantasy dream world of the BFG has been wonderfully brought to life by award-winning British animators Cosgrove Hall and now looks, and sounds, even better on DVD. When little Sophie is taken from her orphange bed one night, it's just the beginning of a thrilling adventure with The Big Friendly Giant. As they catch dreams together in Dream Country...
