    Dano is a talented actor who needs to aim higher, and it should go without saying that Deschanel can do - and should know - better. show more

    We can be grateful to a stellar cast and some discipline on the part of Matt Aselton, a commercials director making his feature debut, that Gigantic doesn't go completely overboard. Nevertheless, the film will appeal mostly to festivals and adventurous audiences. show more
