Ok so I went into this movie hoping for some excitement and some nostalgia; what I got was boredom. After the first hour I just really didn't care anymore. The best part was the fact that it was in 3D. If you haven't saw it, take my word for it and see something else.

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.

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.

The plot and characters were certainly a bit formulaic, but it was much better than I expected. There was some funny dialogue without being campy. The "love story" developed rather naturally. And the action was really good. It all came to a rather quick and tidy resolution, but it was a fun ride all the way to the finish.

This is a great family movie. There is some violence and the giants could be scary to small children. We did go to the 3D movie but not a moive that is a must see in 3D as I expected.
