The story grows more desperate as it goes on.

There seems to have been numerous versions of this story - so does the world need another one? And one in 3D?

For myself, I was but seldom inspired to peals of true laughter, though I did relish that part when Mr. Black, confronting a fire raging in the Palace of Lilliput, douses the blaze through heroic use of such means as Nature has provided him.

You may be imagining this is an animated film, and that Jack Black is voicing Lemuel Gulliver. Not at all. This is live action, and despite the 3-D, it's sorta old-fashioned, not that that's a bad thing.

While not the worst in recent 3D films, Gulliver's Travels is more gimmicky than a crackling good yarn.

A low-grade comedy that'll have Jonathan Swift turning in his grave.
