When it’s over, Jack Black is Jack Black, need I say more? The film was mildly entertaining with Black adding some light humour to the classic Jonathan Swift book-to-screen adaptation about a man who gets shipwrecked on an island inhabited by little people. The film’s got a decent love story, plus it’s got some decent character development, plus a pretty rocking soundtrack, plus a transformers-like battle at the end, balancing it out as a decent film suitable for the whole family. No overly crude behaviour or swearing from Black, except maybe peeing on the king, that was a bit unnecessary. I thought the special effects could have been better considering the technology the film industry has available. I thought the integration of past and present cultures colliding added a fresh change from the original classic.
My rating: 3.5 out of 5
