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.

OK, talented Graphics, and Animation work, story line was weak, action ok, but not really believable in places.
Wait for DVD or TV.

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.

Sad disappointment: 3D mediocre, characters too flat to care about. Waste of time and money.
