We watched this movie in an IMAX 3-D XD theater and the CGI characters really came to life. The movie is fast-paced (if a bit predictable) and keeps the story moving along quickly. Great performance by the leading actors and actress. The CGI element of the giants could have bit more detailed. I never quite believed the giants were "real". In Monsters, Inc. it is possible to completely the reality of the monsters like Sully because of the tremendous detail in hair. The giants in this movie were good but not great. The 3-D features were awesome. I actually pulled back in my set as several objects came whizzing towards us from the screen. Very believable. Great performances by Ewan McGregor and Stanley Tucci.

This was a great family movie. It has a great story line that everyone in your household will love. My 9 and 11 year olds both love it!

Our entire family went to see Jack the Giant Slayer in 3D, and everyone LOVED it! My parents thought it was action packed and like the folklore element, and my kids thought it was the perfect mix of humor and action. I was worried my 5 year old daughter would be scared, but she wasn't at all. My husband thought it was fun to watch too. I love movies that everyone can enjoy together!

This movie was absolutely amazing! I went with my 10 year old daughter and she didn't want the movie to end. I have never seen her react to a movie like that and it was such a pleasure to see her enjoy it as much as she did. I could not wait to see it and when I did it so much more than I expected. Special effects were amazing and the giants were just so realistic and creepy looking...GREAT JOB GREAT MOVIE. Cant wait for it to come out on DVD because I WILL OWN IT!!!

I loved this movie. The story line was great (action, romance, adventure) and the effects (three D and I Max) really added to the enjoyment. This is not for really little kids - I think it would be a bit scary for them. However, I think from 7 or 8 years on - it's a wonderful movie!
