The giants looked too fake. Some of the action sequences were pretty neat. I think this movie works better as a rental than seeing in the theater. Not all bad. Sorta worth seeing I guess. but not worth the price of admission. Wait for video.

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 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.

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.
