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.)

It was OK

The giants looked too fake. Some of the action sequences were pretty neat. I think this movie works better as a rental than seeing in the theater. Not all bad. Sorta worth seeing I guess. but not worth the price of admission. Wait for video.

Mom loved it as much as son

I took my 9-year old son to this one and we both LOVED it! Want to see it again in 3D this time. Great action, great story, well done. I think it would be too scary for little kids but 8+ are ok for sure.

Jack the Giant Slayer

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.
