Endgame meets expectations without really ever exceeding them.
It’s populated with unconventionally-rendered, wildly-exaggerated characters that wouldn’t look good on a cereal box.
From the start just given the title alone, you’re drawn in to the why’s of the main character Barbara, a young girl who has set out to destroy giants that have invaded her small town. Through her personal journey we find that not everything is as it seems and as the underlying nature of the story unfolds, you’re taken on a somber yet heartwarming journey relatable to many across the world. A drama story with a sprinkle of action, I Kill Giants is a great view for the family to sit and enjoy.
For the most part, the film is successful, mainly because Marvel has done a pretty masterful job of laying the groundwork during the past decade of MCU movies.
Guardians is a different comic book movie, sure it’s set in space but it’s really about this ragtag group of outsiders who have formed more than friendship but a family and what makes these films different is it’s really about their relationship and their dynamic that make the films work.
The film excels in the first and middle act when it strangely lacks a notable plot or villain, instead choosing to primarily focus on the quintet (prominent side characters not withstanding) and the unique, almost dysfunctional, relationship they share with one another.
