I took my 16 year old to see this and he loved it. It was not my kind of movie. I have to say though that some of the special affects were pretty good.

Entertaining, original

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!

Old Fashioned Once Upon A Time Tale

In this age of appealing to the lowest common denominator (which admittedly this movie does with the whole "giant chef" scene), its refreshing to see an old fashioned fairytale yarn. The actors turn in fine performances (Stanley Tucci's scenery-chewing villain is repulsively delightful). It's also a family friendly romp, although some of the scenes get a little scary for younger children. The story does also toe the edge of running too long, but why carp? It's fun. Take a break from the Hollywood pop culture sludge machine and buy some magic beans.

BIG FUN

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

Loved the Giant Movie

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!
