Critic Reviews for Among Giants
First time director Sam Miller drenches the whole thing with excessive helicopter shots, swirling crane shots, and thundering music, ruining the whole experience.
There is little Griffiths or Postlethwaite can do to fill out Beaufoy's underwritten, uninvolving script.
Offers a few new twists on the theme that love always changes everything and, for that reason, is both exhilarating and scary. Email This Review
The director transcends the pitfalls of sentimentality that beleaguer so many earnest blue-collar movies these days.
Among Giants' blah story of love among the high tension wires is a limp disappointment of voltages dashed.
Audience Reviews for Among Giants
[font=Arial]I watched “Among Giants” without knowing who exactly are in the movie. It came as a surprise to find out Pete Postlethwaite and Rachel Griffiths lead the film. The impression of Rachel in “Hilary and Jack” is still vivid, since I recently watched that one for the second or third times. As for Pete, It has been a long time since I saw his credibly acclaimed “in the name of the father”. His performance in “Among Giants” bring back memory how good he was in “ in the name of the father”. He was not at all outshined by Daniel day-Lewis. [/font][font=Arial]They played an unlikely couple, having huge age difference between them. Yet it’s not all unlikely they would fall for each other. They both have this unique characteristic in them. There was full frontal scene of Pete which really surprised me (considering he is not really that young). Yet he played it out so naturally, I even find these coolness and sexiness in him. [/font] [font=Arial]Though some of the scenes are good, the script is kind of weak, ending totally predictable. This is the kind of movie that you see the actors, not about the story or direction. [/font]
