I am still a kid at heart and loved the story of Jack and the Beanstalk. This movie brought the book to life in such a wonderful way. The writers did a great job weaving the story together and the cinematography in 3D included me in the great adventure! I would go see it again!

I rate this a B. We all know the story so no real suprises BUT still fun to watch. I think they did and excellent job creating the giants (even though some of their actions and dialogue were hokey). The acting was OK but the real star is the production design. Great sets and felt like everything that was supposed to be giant ...was. Nothing new here but worth the time....Go and enjoy

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.

The 3D effects could have been much better. The movie itself was pretty good. The plot was good and the comedy in the movie was good but I think there should have been more. Definitely worth seeing.

At least the popcorn was ok. The movie - expensive, yet poorly produced CG around. Costumes - looked like the kids at the K1-12 produced them, the actors - must have been the parents of the costume production kids.
Wait for it on Netflix - the Saturday evening I went - the theatre was empty. It won't live long on the big screen - thankfully.
