Our entire family went to see Jack the Giant Slayer in 3D, and everyone LOVED it! My parents thought it was action packed and like the folklore element, and my kids thought it was the perfect mix of humor and action. I was worried my 5 year old daughter would be scared, but she wasn't at all. My husband thought it was fun to watch too. I love movies that everyone can enjoy together!

We went because the weather was lousy and we'd seen everything else we want to. But, this was a pleasant surprise. The 3D was good, not the kind that makes you sick! The special effects are above average. The acting was in keeping with the type of movie. Light and just campy enough to make it fun. And the movie had heart.
Nicholas Hoult reminds me of a young Hugh Grant, which is a very good thing. Take the kids or go without them. You will not be disappointed. If you are, you've lost your sense of fun.

This movie was absolutely amazing! I went with my 10 year old daughter and she didn't want the movie to end. I have never seen her react to a movie like that and it was such a pleasure to see her enjoy it as much as she did. I could not wait to see it and when I did it so much more than I expected. Special effects were amazing and the giants were just so realistic and creepy looking...GREAT JOB GREAT MOVIE. Cant wait for it to come out on DVD because I WILL OWN IT!!!

Very entertaining, original - I don't ever recall Jack and the Beanstalk this way, but maybe I've been wrong all these years. No matter, this film takes the tale to unique/imaginative territory and it just worked. The story takes you on the ride, not thee effects/3D - that's what matters. Acting across the board was excellent - nothing overboard, no cheesy lines common with such theatrical depictions of tales. If anything, you're left wanting more!

I loved this movie. The story line was great (action, romance, adventure) and the effects (three D and I Max) really added to the enjoyment. This is not for really little kids - I think it would be a bit scary for them. However, I think from 7 or 8 years on - it's a wonderful movie!
