User reviews on Gulliver's Travels
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 starring Jack Black, Jason Segal and Emily Blunt is a comedy based on a novel “Gulliver’s Travels,” written by Jonathan Swift. This movie pretty much sucked the whole time and I fell asleep a couple of times. I don’t know why I thought this movie would be good, it stars Jack Black and he is the worst. I think the movie was supposed to be funny, but they did not get one laugh from me. It did a horrible job of recreating the magic of the highly favored book. The storyline was horrific and the acting was not on par, with the exception of Emily Blunt. Emily Blunt is my favorite actress and I do not know why she agreed to be in this low quality film when she has been in so many winners. Overall I would give this movie an F- and urge people not to see it.
So thank you Hollywood for devouring yet another wonderful book . This movie was absolutely the worst I have seen in a long long time. I am still enraged by it and want my money and time back. The movie was chronically unfunny, incredibly stupid, extremely boring and with no deeper meaning whatsoever. I don’t know what the director was thinking when he looked at the end result and decided that this is worth big screen. The movie flopped in every single area and when I thought that this could not get worse, it did every time. I already don’t like Jack Black and after this movie I just simply hate him. As always he was playing the same stupid character and blabbering nonsense. I took my little sister to see it with me and she didn’t like it either, oh and she is eight years old! So if this movie was supposed to be for younger audience, it failed miserably in that department as well. I would not recommend this movie to my worst enemy, it is that bad.
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.
