Good movie but not great. Effects were great. I consider this a Redbox movie!
Film was good
Nice story line
I took my two kids, 8 & 4, and they enjoyed it

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!

This movie was really fun. I took my 8 yr old and we really enjoyed it. The giants were more ugly than scary.

Movie goers considering seeing Jack the Giant Slayer will find a film that delivers on its promise, and nothing more. It is a formulaic fantasy, high special effects action film that is crafted well. It delivers an interesting take on the traditional Jack and the Beanstalk fable. You will leave the theater entertained. It will not disappoint, as long as you're not expecting an Oscar best film candidate.

Watching he movie made me remind me of the story "Jack and the Beanstalk"..But the movie perhaps depicted more than the version I had read. The visual animation was very pleasing...The story depicts about moral values, true courage, and a keen sens of presence of mind which helped to save Jack imminent danger. You do not always need to have a physical prowess to defeat your opponent. Your quick presence of mind is all what you need to survive in this world !
