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.

We took our boys ages 15 & 12 to see this for their first IMAX 3D experience. They really enjoyed it. The graphics were great, story line was pretty good, and just an overall good family movie with older children. Some scenes may not be suitable for younger children. The only thing I was disappointed in was the lack of 3D effects. Not worth paying $15.00 a piece for; your better off seeing it on the regular screen.

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.

My husband and I took our grandson to see this movie. I thought it was ok. A little cheesy in some parts, but overall. we liked it.

This movie was fun from start to finish. It portrayed giants how I imagined them as a kid and now. it didn't eschew violence, but did't make it gory. showed what would happen if a giant caught you enough to scare one of them, but not to bathe you in unnecessary gore just for the sake of it for the intended audience. Came away with it more impressed and satisfied then going in there. If I were a kid now it would be one of my new play all the time favorite movies. still has the great message of not giving your hard earned money for useless beans.
