I enjoyed the romance, the humor, and the gorgeous scenery. Story was fun but not gripping. My sixteen-year old niece thought it was wonderful and wants to get the DVD when it comes out. I fell asleep and missed one of the best scenes where a giant picked his nose, pigs in blankets were for supper, and one of the heroes escaped being baked in a pie... I found the CG very jumpy and had a little trouble understanding the giants' gravelly voices. Also had a little trouble understanding why all the giants were men - how do they reproduce??? Ewan McGregor was eye-candy although his posh accent seemed incongruous! I think this movie would be just as enjoyable in 2D.

My husband enjoyed the movie. I thought the leading lady was way too old for the hero and no chemistry. The 3D special effects weren't anything special. I also thought it wasn't appropriate for children. The two headed giant seemed rather distasteful. Yuck.
Does Hollywood test drive any of these movies? There are lots of books out there with great plots. Surely, something better has to come along to the theaters.

Definitely a great movie! It was a lot of fun to watch. Kept me focused the whole time and wanting to know what was going to happen next. A great movie that I would definitely recommend seeing.

Although probably intense for younger viewers, this movie is a blast for big kids. The art, acting, humor, and sense of grandeur all make for great big-screen viewing. The 3D is well-done and completes the experience. Catch this in a theater while you still can.

I couldn't wait until this one came out. Had to see it opening weekend! My husband and I loved it! It was so suspenseful and you really get drawn in to feeling for the characters. Definitely a must see in the theater! It just won't be the same on video, but I'm sure we will be buying this one! The special effects were awesome, I even found myself grabing my husbands arm, pulling on it a little and squeezing his hand a little tighter at moments.
