Very pleased with movie, kept me intertained throughout picture. Had good flow of humor, romance, suspense and seat jerking special effects. Will be a movie for my collection at home.

This was a very good movie. It has a something for just about everyone. It is suspenseful, has romance, & just a really good watch. Also, there is no bad language in it which my husband & I really appreciated.

At least the popcorn was ok. The movie - expensive, yet poorly produced CG around. Costumes - looked like the kids at the K1-12 produced them, the actors - must have been the parents of the costume production kids.
Wait for it on Netflix - the Saturday evening I went - the theatre was empty. It won't live long on the big screen - thankfully.

The plot and characters were certainly a bit formulaic, but it was much better than I expected. There was some funny dialogue without being campy. The "love story" developed rather naturally. And the action was really good. It all came to a rather quick and tidy resolution, but it was a fun ride all the way to the finish.

The Good: Great visuals good acting, Jack (Nicholas Hoult) did a great job, Isabelle (Eleanor Tomlinson) is beautiful (certainly a plus) and I always enjoy Ewan McGregor and Ian McShane, both favorites of mine. The not so good: after seing CGI like Life of Pi recently and knowledge of the state of the art of it, I thought the giants should have been much better. Story line is ok, but fairly predictable. If you're interested in seeing it, it should be viewed on the biggest screen in 3D that you can. Fun but not stupendus.
