Gulliver’s Travels- Movie Review


There are only two reasons why people would watch this movie- 1- Jack Black and 2- One of those childhood stories you wont forget. For me, both these reasons apply.

Inspired from the famous children’s book, Gulliver’s Travels the movie is set in the modern times where Gulliver goes to Bermuda Triangle to do a travel story to impress the girl he loves at work. Circumstances bring him to Lilliput, a place where tiny people live. The movie is about Gulliver’s adventures in this new place and how he gets back home.

Jack Black is known as a funny guy, who hardly makes sense. He’s been a part of some really corny movies in the past and not everyone likes him. I think he’s fun though, so this movie was not bad for me.  Also, Marshall from ‘How I met your mother’ is in it. He’s a great actor and has done a good job in this movie! As I said in the previous paragraph, the movie is set in the modern times so there are a lot of changes made in the story. After the interval, it does seem a little long but I guess the director wanted it that way. There are some jokes which you may not find funny at all because they’re super kiddish so most will not like the movie. But this is not about most; it’s about what I think of the movie.

I think its ok and you should watch it if you like Jack Black and his kinda movies otherwise, just give this a miss.

Rating– 3/5
