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.

What a joy to watch this movie. We all know the storyline. This is an updated version for sure. The CGI is spectacular and the cinematography is fantastic as well. The director did a fine job of keeping the film moving along and at a great pace. The acting was good; boarding on excellent in parts. I was indeed entertained and will go see it again. Do yourself a great big favor and treat yourself to a wonderful night at the movies with this one. The giants are super, super excellent, you have to see this one. No cussing, sex or crude bloody violence. I will look for awards in the future given to this film for many reasons.

Definitely confused whether this is a child movie or an adult movie but it's stuck somewhere in the middle without being a teenage movie.
There's also a lot of unexplained things like no female giants?
That said, still a pretty good movie. Very creative, captures your attention, and the graphics were done well. Other than the gaps, very good directing and casting!
