This movie is action packed! I am amazed when people don't get that this is on the same level as ice age, bugs life, and monster's ink. It is not intended to be anything else but animated entertainment.

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.

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.

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.
