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.

This is a movie that charged for 3D and the only experience was the beans being thrown down around you. It was a drag of a movie and a miser' able (context of another movie) experience and one I hope never to repeat. Oh, there were 7 people in a theatre set for 260.

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.

We took our boys ages 15 & 12 to see this for their first IMAX 3D experience. They really enjoyed it. The graphics were great, story line was pretty good, and just an overall good family movie with older children. Some scenes may not be suitable for younger children. The only thing I was disappointed in was the lack of 3D effects. Not worth paying $15.00 a piece for; your better off seeing it on the regular screen.

We went with a group age range 20-75 and all of us loved it. Yes, there were a few holes but it was fun and enjoyable. I don't think it would have been worth going 3D.
