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.

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.

We loved this movie. The action was exciting, the story was right on and the graphics were awesome. I would recommend it to everyone who loves great movies.

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.

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.
