Jack The Giant Role Player

By joyfulwoman2078
Written March 12, 2013
“Jack The Giant Slayer” involves the story of a well- meaning but over-protective man named King Brahmwell(valiantly played by Ian McShane) who seems more concerned about his daughter Isabelle(strongly played by Eleanor Tomlinson) getting married than allowing her to explore the world around her. Stanley Tucci plays a discreetly evil assistant to the king, but does a good job of playing it convincingly. Ewan McGregor also projects a compelling performance in playing the protector of both the King Brahmwell and Princess Isabelle. Nicholas Hoult plays an innocent and energetic portrayal of Jack. The character of Jack unintentionally changes the life of himself and those around him when he obtains ownership of some magic beans. “Jack The Giant Slayer” is the type of movie to watch for those who are open to the message of how even just one person can drastically shape events for themselves and those around them.

I'm not a huge fan of action films, so I didn't expect much. However, I loved this film! The director had me feeling like I was right there with there characters. That doesn't happen much in the movies anymore. It was a fun ride, for me!

2013 Take On OLD Fairy Tale--A Goody!

C'mon, who doesn't love young, poor, optimistic heroes and huge, rich, gross giants (and evildoing politicians)? We've seen cartoons of fairy tales, bad renderings from decades past. This one has GIANTS, and we actually go to their world (they're pretty gross, by the way ... your young boys and girls will love the booger eater as much as you will. Ew.), hear their thundering footsteps, growling language. You can almost smell them. The effects are right for the story: There are a lot of moments that make your heart beat faster, starting with the beanstalk just ripping itself into the sky. Adults pay attention because there is a lot of wry humor that actually brings a laugh. Wonderfully cast, beautifully shot/costumed/set designed, and crisply edited. I saw this last night in a large theater and am looking forward to seeing it on the big screen again before owning the DVD. (GIANTS!!). Oh, and I'm over 50. Go. See. It. (I saw in 2D and was thrilled.)

Go for the charm and CGI, not the plot.

To make things short, the movie was honestly very weird. It had a strange feel to it that took me out of it immediately. The plot was also just very strange and convoluted. But the charm and action in the movie were great! The characters were good (excluding the giants) and the CGI action sequences were well done.
