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.

I went because my husband wanted to see this and OzThe Great and Powerful was sold out. I was bored and didn't really care about the charters. We saw it in 3D and the 3D effect were weak. Don't bother to spend the extra money. It wasn't the worst movie I've seen, but it was pretty lame.

The absolute best movie I have ever seen! Took every member of my family back to see it again! The writing is brilliant! Written for any age to thoroughly enjoy! When the director said ACTION he meant it.
