Movie review: Disney’s ‘The BFG’

Posted on
I have a confession to make: I didn't love Disney's "The BFG." I suspect that fans of Roald Dahl's classic story of the same name will feel differently about the movie, and that's fine. I, too, have enjoyed watching my favorite books come to life on the screen, regardless of the movie's quality. But if I'm critiquing the movie from the viewpoint of someone who hasn't read the book and doesn't have an emotional attachment to the story, "The BFG" (Big Friendly Giant) wasn't a film I would necessarily recommend to families. It is long - at just about two hours - and it drags, despite the special effects and a title character portrayed by an award-winning actor.
