was a fun twist on the Fairy tale that I enjoyed watching. Kept me smiling, and enjoyed the special effects a lot. I think it's a little too bloody for young children tho. They kept ripping heads off...but us older 'kids' can handle that and of course the good guy always wins in the end. OOPS did I spoil the ending for you? LOL

Fun remake of the traditional bed time story. Good/Great special effects, great acting, and good storyline with a few inconsistencies -- like a locket that is waterproof.
All in all- a great movie for the kids and tolerable for adults and worth seeing in the theaters. I really don't think the Giants will have their effect on the TV.

This is an interesting play on Jack and the Beanstalk, where an entire realm of giants appears to have an affinity for the taste of humans. Think of how kids like to bit into and chew on gummies, and you get the idea. The good thing is that there isn't any blood or gore, just a Hitchcock type of cut when thinks get cut, or "bit off". It's a pretty good movie, though there are perhaps way too many giants.
The story between Jack and the Princess is a little cliché, and the term "There's behind me, isn't there?" seems a little odd when used, but it is enjoyable. The special effects are done really well, and the bean stalks are pretty intimidating, especially when they are either growing or falling. If you are looking for some good PG-13 family fun, you'll like this movie.

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.

Goods graphics... 3D was great ... just ended kind of boring... but all in all a pretty good movie took the kids; 11, 8, and 4 they liked it.
