Giant Load of Fun

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.

Read the mixed reviews but still wanted to see it in XD 3D which was a 50 min drive, so I went by myself. I thought the movie was great.

Suped up fairy tale

I really enjoyed this movie. It was like Jack and the Bean-stock on steroids. My 8 and 10 year old kids liked it also. It was not too scary for them. Very well done. Special effects and voice overs are good.

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.

Pure Fun

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.
