I took my 9-year old son to this one and we both LOVED it! Want to see it again in 3D this time. Great action, great story, well done. I think it would be too scary for little kids but 8+ are ok for sure.

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.

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.

C'mon, who doesn't love young, poor, optimistic heroes and huge, rich, gross giants (and evildoing politicians)? We've seen cartoons of fairy tales, bad renderings from decades past. This one has GIANTS, and we actually go to their world (they're pretty gross, by the way ... your young boys and girls will love the booger eater as much as you will. Ew.), hear their thundering footsteps, growling language. You can almost smell them. The effects are right for the story: There are a lot of moments that make your heart beat faster, starting with the beanstalk just ripping itself into the sky. Adults pay attention because there is a lot of wry humor that actually brings a laugh. Wonderfully cast, beautifully shot/costumed/set designed, and crisply edited. I saw this last night in a large theater and am looking forward to seeing it on the big screen again before owning the DVD. (GIANTS!!). Oh, and I'm over 50. Go. See. It. (I saw in 2D and was thrilled.)
