It as really good! Lots of action and fantastic special effects. We saw it in 3D but there were only a few instances where that really made a difference and that part is really subjective. Other than that, this movie is definitely a must see and I hope they come out with a part 2!

I liked this movie. It was action packed and the FX were "Fee, Fi, Fannntastic. Although, the process in which they make 3D movies have certainly changed from that of the 60's and up. The former 3D movies used to come right at you. Now you have to squint your eyes and such. Most of the movies are really just 2D and have very little 3D action.
This movie, although it is very action packed, failed in the 3D department. Most of the movie was 2D only. They should have stuck to that formula. All in all it is a good "Little Diddy", also loved Billy Nighy and Ewan McGregor, they are remarkable actors. The storyline had a measure of storybook plausability. Come on what do you want, it"s a children's fairy tale after all. My family and I loved it, I intend on buying the blue ray when it comes out.

Good story and lots of adventure! 3D effects were above average and add to the story! I'm not sure that I would take kids under the age of 7 or 8 because (semi-spoiler-alert) there are a lot of characters that get eaten by the giants; could be unsettling for some kids.

Yeah wrong title but hey he had to be to escape those Giants. Great story about the old tale Jack & The Beanstalk. Good for younger teenagers not so much for the kids. Great movie for a date with some nice effects especially in 3D. I say go.

I was entertained. It wasn't as good as I thought it was going to be. Solid special effects. I give it a 7 out of 10.
