If you are a girl who saw a preview to this and thought, oh this would be a cute hero love story, DON'T GO! It was disturbing, horrifying, and way too gorey. It is not for kids, teens, or adults who dont like horror movies. But Obi-Wan (Ewan) was pretty awesome.=)

There were some pretty tense moments in the movie, but, of course, it all came out right in the end. The actors were "fun" to watch and believable in their parts. The story was engaging and well-presented. The giants were terrible and terrifying. It was definitely an enjoyable experience and one I would encourage parents to share with their kids.

This was great for any age. The special effects were superb! The acting was pretty good. The story-line stayed true. I will purchase Jack/Beanstalk and Hansel/Gretal when they arrive in the store. What are you waiting for? While others re-hash classics . . . badly, the re-telling of our favorite stories is within reach.

“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.
