Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Gulliver's Travels strips the source material down to its recognizable parts and then builds something completely new out of them. Unfortunately, the result is entirely Lilliputian in ambition, even for a children's movie.
Rotten: [A] dumb excuse for a movie.
Rotten: Somewhere by the middle, the souffle collapses, and the movie becomes sleep-inducing. Gulliver doesn't have much to do in Lilliput, and we notice that before he does.
Rotten: It all feels so lazy and familiar that adults may find themselves hoping Black will start to challenge himself again -- and the more swiftly the better.
The longer I watched with my 9 year old son the worse this movie got. I suppose for someone that hasn't reached middle school it may be considered a little entertaining.....but my son was not impressed.
