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.

I wasn't certain that I wanted to actually see this one, but after going, I'm quite glad I did. It wasn't conventional, it made the entire theater gasp and laugh together, and I would definitely take my children to see it.

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.

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.

The movie had some mild violence, but over all was a fun ride. It was worth the money to go out and see it, the effects were incredible.
