Rocksteddy: Characters are cartoons, villains are cartoons, CGI was awful, riddled with cliches, and all around boring.

cress: The story is not that bad, but seems a little rushed. Once they get to the giant world in the clouds, they don't stay too long. They never really take full advantage of the 'big giant/little human" aspect ratio, which in films like HONEY, I SHRUNK THE KIDS, made it a lot of fun and clever. And where are the women in this world of giants? I didn't see a one. Do they all buttfuck each other while eating their boogers(you'd have to see the film to understand that reference) all the live-long day? The war that is prophesied is a rushed, underwhelming skirmish at the end.
The thing that really dooms this film is the cartoonish, video game-esque giants. They look great for an XBOX360 game, but horrible for an almost $200 million film. We now live in a world of Gollum and Avatar, so get your goddamn cgi characters looking proper before sending them out!
Bryan Singer's direction is fine, but a bit "by the numbers". I've never had a problem with him as a director, as most at this site do. He just needs a good script. The one he got here is mediocre at best.
