Gulliver's Travels 3D Movie Reviews
User reviews on Gulliver's Travels 3D
Guliver Travels in 3D was amazing! I saw it with my sister, Who says "Funny, Hilarious, and a Must see!" The only thing I noticed was a portion of the movie wasnt actually in 3D. Yet it was a very well made movie and Jack Black was very good.
Gulliver’s Travels is a standard feel-good family film. Starring Jack Black, Emily Blunt, and Jason Segal, this film is about a travel writer who ends up in the town of Liliput where he is a giant compared to the tiny village people. I would not say that this movie was fantastic and it wasn’t horrible. It is just one of those movies that delivers exactly what you want it to. Jack Black is his normal crazy self and has a few laugh out loud moments during the movie. I do not think the movie did a good job of adapting the cult-favorite book or even the cartoon that was made a long time ago. If you wanted to take your family to go see a light-hearted movie on Christmas with no chance of being blown away, this might be your movie. The way the producers inserted a giant Jack Black into the world of Liliput was not great, it just didn’t look good. The only thing that saved the visuals somewhat was the cool 3D features. Usually I do not like 3D movies because they give me a headache and I end up having to take the glasses off half way through the film, but in this movie that did not happen. Jason Segal brought a great comedic voice to the film and Emily Blunt was cute as always. This is definitely a film you can take your children to because Jack Black always makes the little ones laugh.
Gulliver’s Travels is about a travel writer who is sent to an assignment in Bermuda but ends up in Liliput. Liliput is no ordinary town however, Lemuel (played by Jack Black) is a giant compared to the tiny people of this tiny town. Based on Jonathan Swift’s classic tale, Gulliver is an underachiever and wannabe traveler who’s mind takes more trip than he does. Jack Black had a few good movies about 10 years ago and has been making flops ever since. This is another example of a movie whose sole purpose was to show off Jack Black and his crazy ways. The movie also features Emily Blunt and Jason Segal, two of my favorite actors. I was first introduced to Jason Segal in Forgetting Sarah Marshall, where I don’t think I’ve ever laughed as hard. Unfortunately, Segal does not perform as well in Gulliver’s Travels. The movie is bland and unimaginative. There is nothing about the 3D features that add anything to the overall movie. Jack Black’s giantness is created by computer obviously, but they did an absolutely horrible job. It looks cheap, like it was produced in the 1980s when they didn’t have the technology to create a movie like Avitar. Overall, if there isn’t anything else to see on Christmas, I still wouldn’t suggest seeing this.
