Well done retelling of the archetypal Hero's Journey!

Very well done. Saw in 3D but would have been just as happy to see it in 2D, it was a timing issue. We all liked it a lot! Great retelling of one of the great mythological themes. It was good to see an updated rendition of this fine classic, they did it very well in our opinion. There were enough plot twists to keep it interesting. I guess the jaded critics never read or watched the late great Joseph Campbell, who taught anthropology at Sara Lawrence & wrote many outstanding volumes including HERO WITH A THOUSAND FACES, also POWER OF MYTH etc, which was also a PBS video series on Cosmological Archetypes years ago with Bill Moyers interviewing Campbell at the Skywalker Ranch. Some of the most worthwhile work ever done in bringing to life the real importance of the stories such as this, that depict the HERO'S JOURNEY.. When people of all ages forget Legends, folklore & Fairy Tales, they are missing a larger point.

What a ride! This is a different kind of Jack v. Giants tail. It's an epic adventure of love and war between man and monster. There are plenty of complications to the simple Jack and the Beanstalk tale to totally entertain the parent while. See if.

thought the movie and special effects were very entertaining. I took my three grand kids (ages 4-6) and found it to be a bit fearful at times. They said they were not afraid but their reactions told a different story. The acting was enjoyable but no Oscar nominees in this one. The ending was an unexpected twist. I enjoyed it.

However, there are some good special effects that would probably be great in 3-D. Overall-wait for it to come out on Netflix or Redbox.
