Sophia, a new high school student, tries to make friends with Barbara, who tells her that “she kills giants,” protecting this way her hometown and its inhabitants, who do not understand her strange behavior.
The CGI beasties were pretty cool to behold, unfortunately they were a pretty minute part of this movie, which is absolutely not what it was marketed to be. Now I've got no problem with a movie subverting expectations, but I Kill Giants didn't offer up enough within its alternatives to come away with a whole-hearted recommendation from me. What it does have is intermitantly interesting, and although I was a little disappointed, it was very far from the worst film I've seen all year.
Final rating:★★½ - Had a lot that appealed to me, didn’t quite work as a whole.
