Great effects boring story line

The special effects were great! I liked the movie just for that fact. My daughter and her teenage friends were not that impressed. She wanted to see that movie because of the cute guy... I really liked the up close shots with the detail of the giants faces and the movement of the giants was pretty cool too. Maybe a younger child would enjoy, but be warned that the giants do EAT the people!

I would suggest seeing the movie in 3D. It had some nice 3D effects that were worth watching. The plot was good and it was funny at parts. Overall a good flick.

A bit of a mess

Uneven FX, Uneven direction and story (is it kids movie? is it adult fantasy?) and I hate to say that about one of my favorite directors. Seems the studio stepped in and scenes were clearly edited to remove some of the more violent action (heads being bitten off by giants) to get a more accessible rating. That's a sign of trouble in that "Jack" didn't know what kind of movie it should be in the end product. The one big positive (not specifically referring to the uneven CGI here) was the actual 3d. Lots of depth to the 3d and mostly implemented very well. Not much charisma from the actors and a very, to put it mildly ..RUSHED, love story that built zero care or affection for the main characters.
