Giants and Toys: Interesting, Stylish, But Not Engaging

Yasuzo Masumura’s movie script was obviously written around a theme, first, and fails to maintain emotionally engaging characters throughout. Too bad–as several characters become interesting, the viewer’s interest is thrown away by another preachy rant and an abrupt ending that doesn’t build to a satisfying moral dilemma. (The character’s dilemma is there, but I couldn’t connect with him.)

While I did enjoy the stylish photography and the sometimes clever characterization, the movie’s ham-handed handling of theme was too much.
