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.

Entertaining, fun, great special effects. Not too much romance, just enough. Funny, suspenseful. Little kids probably shouldn't see this movie as it's a bit violent and loud.

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.

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.
