My kids loved this movie. We seen it in 3D on IMAX. It started a little slow but after about 30 mins my 9 year old son was glued to the screen. It was great in 3D!

I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised by this movie. I thought the script was well done and developed - a nice twist on a childhood classic. The acting and cast were wonderful and the cinematography was great. My father, myself, and my kids all went - three generations that all enjoyed the movie.

The movie had some mild violence, but over all was a fun ride. It was worth the money to go out and see it, the effects were incredible.

Went to see this on a date with my husband. Enjoyed it so much that I took four kids (12, 10, 9 and 6) back along with two grandparents. Everyone loved it. The story is well adapted. The giants are perfect and all of the characters have depth and are well played. For parents, they ARE man-eating giants, but this fact is made obvious WITHOUT the gratuitous gore thati many films choose to include. There is death but it is implied in many cases. No blood that I remember. No sex nor even innuendo. The giants are bad but not evil. scary enough but they do have personality and humor. Only profanity that I remember was one "hell". . Very good movie. Reminded me very much of The Princess Bride.

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.
