Giant Couldn't Triumph
28 April 2018 | by niaz_islamSee all my reviews

All in all the movie was average movie. This film could have use some more human emotions, and then the audience could feel a strong connection with giant.

The script was also average. With some little more emotional connections with different characters could made the script a whole lot better. Throughout the film it seemed that the characters are slightly detached from each other, which made the film a bit less enjoyable. Performance of the characters was a bit of stale; there was no extraordinary performance.

As far as the story goes, one can try the film in a slow evening when there is nothing to do.
