Maybe it's too bold on its premise, but I Kill Giants at least survives it's probable downfall for being a dramatic graphic novel adaptation. [Full review in Spanish].

Enlightens strong emotions with a level of imagination that is both fragile and brutal with its beauty.

Barbara Thorson is a slayer of giants. In her downtime, she's also a lonely, precocious, school-bullied 12-year-old with what is arguably an active imagination as an elaborate defence mechanism.

I Kill Giants is well-acted and -directed but ultimately too short on the imagination to make it distinctive
November 8, 2018
An impeccably realised adaptation which brings the sensibilities and themes of the comic to life.

I Kill Giants remains a bit of an elegant non-starter.

Teen actress Madison Wolfe is exceptional as the centrepiece in this surprising, above-average fantasy drama, stylishly directed by Anders Walter.

Strange and darkly beautiful, a slave to no master's rhythms or rules other than its own.

Wolfe successfully conveys the high-stakes intensity of Barbara's experience. But while the character is credibly immersed in the dark, strange, paranoid, animistic world she has created for herself, the filmmakers never really get inside her head.

...a sweetly intentioned film, beautifully shot and with a strong lead performance from Madison Wolfe...

Wolfe's stunning performance captivates.

This is edgy, urgent and powerfully meaningful.

Though grounded by a strong presence in the young Madison Wolfe, it is often too dreary to be truly engaging, and too underrealized to be an immersive escape into a fantastical world.
April 11, 2018
An adventure story about a teenage girl who uses her imagination to cope with her fears and problems.

Well, I Kill Giants is very, very like [A Monster Calls], only with more monsters, a Danish director and with Zoe Saldana and Imogen Poots both taking on parts they might have imagined they had moved beyond.
