Gulliver's Travel Movie Review

Lemuel Gulliver is a mailroom clerk at a New York newspaper. After Gulliver bluffs his way into an assignment writing about the secrets of the Bermuda Triangle, he is hurtled to an undiscovered land, Lilliput. In this fantastical new world, Gulliver is a bigger-than-life figure -- in size and ego -- especially after he starts telling tall tales, taking credit for his world's greatest inventions, and placing himself at the center of its most historic events. Gulliver's position is enhanced even further when he leads his new friends in a daring battle against their longtime enemies. But when Gulliver loses it all and puts the Lilliputians in peril, he must find a way to undo the damage. Gulliver only becomes a true giant among men when he learns that it's how big you are on the inside that counts. - Yahoo! Movies

The movie Gulliver's Travel is an adaptation of the 17th century novel by Jonathan Swift. The book tells of the adventures of Captain Lemuel Gulliver and his travels to different places including Lilliput. The movie gives you a different take on the children's classical adventure, presented as the modernized version. The story is fun and entertaining. I would recommend watching it in 3D to fully appreciate the visual and special effects of the movie. Jack Black is outstandingly hilarious throughout the movie. He never fails to amuse the crowd with his wits and sarcastic tone, even his love for music. There are some scenes though and languages not intended for kids, but tolerable. I love how Lilliput is presented in the movie, from the surrounding to the people, to even the way they talk and act. You will notice the big difference between the society before and now. I enjoyed the movie, its very entertaining for the whole family. 

Now showing in your favorite theaters, Gulliver's Travel is directed by Rob Letterman and is distributed by 20th Century Fox.
