Nothing truly fancy, but you get more than you were thinking you were gonna get!

It's "Jack and the Beanstalk" and they did a great job with it! The story was a little darker and more grim than you might expect for a "child's tale," yet it was good for all ages! If I had kids, I'd own it. Didn't need to see it in the theater, but still wasn't bothered that I paid to see it or anything. Definitely worth seeing at some point and well done. My personal opinion is they could have made the story even more interesting a few ways, but I think they didn't want to complicate it too much. Enjoy it for what it is and you will appreciate it!

My husband and I took our grandson to see this movie. I thought it was ok. A little cheesy in some parts, but overall. we liked it.

Not fun

By Archie Moonshine

Thought this would be fun and exciting like "Princess Bride", but it was more like a watered down version of "Lord of the Rings". Violent, graphic, lots of characters dying. CGI was mediocre: I saw it in 2D, but it was annoyingly obvious which scenes they wrote to take advantage of the 3D.

Jack, not a giant kids movie

By Loxluther

I took my 9 year old daughter to see this movie, thinking I would be using her as my pass to see a kids movie that I really wanted to see. Boy was I wrong. She was utterly bored and sleeping before the ending credits rolled. This is NOT a kids movie at all. There isn't a lot of gory stuff, however there is more dialog than a kid wants to hear. I also expected a certain level of "cornballness" to the movie, which I was pleasantly surprised to not have found.

Let's Go Slay a Giant

I went to the movie wanting to know their take on the fairy tale thinking it would be stupid. I was as wrong as could be. Jack makes an excellent hero and has a good story and heart. I like how they portrayed the princess. She wasn't just the damsel in distress or the hero. She is a strong person who helps along in the fight and follows jack. It is refreshing to see that. Ewan McGregor delivers the humor at the right moment with the best one liners. The story is good and so is the CGI. The battle scenes were awesome with great humor. A peek at the humor is this line. I doesn't give away anything because it involves a giant and it takes a lot to kill one if they can be killed. A giant says "I can taste victory" and gets two arrows in his tongue. Great movie. You have to get it on DVD or Blu Ray.
