“Jack The Giant Slayer” involves the story of a well- meaning but over-protective man named King Brahmwell(valiantly played by Ian McShane) who seems more concerned about his daughter Isabelle(strongly played by Eleanor Tomlinson) getting married than allowing her to explore the world around her. Stanley Tucci plays a discreetly evil assistant to the king, but does a good job of playing it convincingly. Ewan McGregor also projects a compelling performance in playing the protector of both the King Brahmwell and Princess Isabelle. Nicholas Hoult plays an innocent and energetic portrayal of Jack. The character of Jack unintentionally changes the life of himself and those around him when he obtains ownership of some magic beans. “Jack The Giant Slayer” is the type of movie to watch for those who are open to the message of how even just one person can drastically shape events for themselves and those around them.

Definitely confused whether this is a child movie or an adult movie but it's stuck somewhere in the middle without being a teenage movie.
There's also a lot of unexplained things like no female giants?
That said, still a pretty good movie. Very creative, captures your attention, and the graphics were done well. Other than the gaps, very good directing and casting!

My family of six loved the movie and declared it a MUST own!

While the movie did have great visuals, and some very good one liners, it was not as good as I had hoped. It was not a $13.50 movie, but would have made a great film on Amazon.com or Netflix.

To make things short, the movie was honestly very weird. It had a strange feel to it that took me out of it immediately. The plot was also just very strange and convoluted. But the charm and action in the movie were great! The characters were good (excluding the giants) and the CGI action sequences were well done.
