A Entertaining Adventure, But It Could Have Been So Much Bigger

Jack the Giant Slayer is indeed an adventure, but it could have been so much better. The plot of film falls under familiar pretenses such as the reluctant lead who discovers his true potential by the end of the film. Very cliched but it does work for the film. The characters could have been stronger, but the performances were entertaining. There is a big world to this movie, but it is not really explored. When it comes down to it, Jack the Giant Slayer knows exactly what it is: a popcorn film. Thankfully it never talks down to the audience as this is kind of movie you can just enjoy. However, given the film's concept, you think there would be a bigger adventure behind it. Oh well, it is still an enjoyable movie.

7 out of 10 stars....it reached a point which we thought was the end but dragged on from there...not at all recommended for kids under 11 years old....there were lots of scared, crying younger kids in the audience.

Wonderful ... Reminds me of The Princess Bride

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.

Nothing truly fancy, but you get more than you were thinking you were gonna get!

It's "Jack and the Beanstalk" and they did a great job with it! The story was a little darker and more grim than you might expect for a "child's tale," yet it was good for all ages! If I had kids, I'd own it. Didn't need to see it in the theater, but still wasn't bothered that I paid to see it or anything. Definitely worth seeing at some point and well done. My personal opinion is they could have made the story even more interesting a few ways, but I think they didn't want to complicate it too much. Enjoy it for what it is and you will appreciate it!
