Critic Reviews for Gulliver's Travels
The pitch to remake this was probably four words: Gulliver's Travels Jack Black. No adjectives, no adverbs, and, most of all, no imagination. Fox took the bait, and this Christmas there's something smelling rotten under the tree.
While the film retains the satire of the original story, it goes too far with the pop culture references.
The over the top performances of the well-spoken Lilliputians, and even that of Jack Black, go a long way towards helping make the movie better, but sadly, they just couldn't save the material from itself.
Despite its broad strokes of goofball, sometimes gross-out comedy tailored to Black's gonzo style, the movie does echo some of the classic novel's farcical observances.
Audience Reviews for Gulliver's Travels
Unnecessary, preposterous, and hardly ever paying a homage to the original tale, this re-imagining of "Gulliver's Travels" is boring and stupid. Jack Black is just being himself in this film, and it seems like the filmmakers are hoping for that to carry the film, and honestly, as sad as it is, that is the best part about it. We are supposed to be told the backstory of these little people, but instead we are told the story from the perspective of Gulliver, which is much less interesting. The original cartoon showed depth in these miniature people and had you rooting for everyone, but in this film everyone is just "there" with nothing to do. The dialogue is laughable, the gags rely on todays technology, and the plot twists are very childish. This film is garbage, but I did admire the few winks it delivered!
12/08/2012 (Blu-Ray 3D)
Everyone who watched this movie expected something big out of it. Jack Black doing his trademark stuff with a bit of physical humour and a story that fitys him. Sounded absolutely great. But unfortunately it didn't do justice to the source material and the effects much like the story was flimsy and unconvincing.
