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.

This was great for any age. The special effects were superb! The acting was pretty good. The story-line stayed true. I will purchase Jack/Beanstalk and Hansel/Gretal when they arrive in the store. What are you waiting for? While others re-hash classics . . . badly, the re-telling of our favorite stories is within reach.

What a joy to watch this movie. We all know the storyline. This is an updated version for sure. The CGI is spectacular and the cinematography is fantastic as well. The director did a fine job of keeping the film moving along and at a great pace. The acting was good; boarding on excellent in parts. I was indeed entertained and will go see it again. Do yourself a great big favor and treat yourself to a wonderful night at the movies with this one. The giants are super, super excellent, you have to see this one. No cussing, sex or crude bloody violence. I will look for awards in the future given to this film for many reasons.

This movie was fun from start to finish. It portrayed giants how I imagined them as a kid and now. it didn't eschew violence, but did't make it gory. showed what would happen if a giant caught you enough to scare one of them, but not to bathe you in unnecessary gore just for the sake of it for the intended audience. Came away with it more impressed and satisfied then going in there. If I were a kid now it would be one of my new play all the time favorite movies. still has the great message of not giving your hard earned money for useless beans.

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!
