Great movie! A little bit of everything in this one. I will be purchasing this for my home collection. Highly recommend for all to go and see.

The movie was a lot of fun! Good combination of action and a little comic relief at times to temper a bit of the mayhem. The giants were awesome!

Cute movie. When I found out Bill Nighy (Viktor from Underworld, Davy Jones from Pirates of The Caribbean) played the king of the giants my mind was blown; he's always seemed to fit the role of the "big bad" monster very well. That being said, the giants were very cool. And I think it was interesting how Jack improvised to kill them; since he's a farm boy obviously he wouldn't know how to fight very well, so he uses what he's given. Was a bit annoyed that so much of the focus was given to Isabelle, though. But the time given to each character felt fulfilling and made sense. The story flowed well, and didn't take itself too seriously. If you like fantasy and classic kid's tales with a twist, this one's worth seeing once or twice :)

overall this movie is so-so. Yes it's entertaining and does become better than the first 30 minutes which were boring. The cgi was sort of cool but nothing we haven't seen in the past gazillion movies which have come out recently. The story however, was just so predictable, stupid, and basically everything about the story and plot fell flat. The acting was ridiculous too. So there is this ordinary guy who tries to help a princess in disguise, and has beans he bought and then they turn into a beanstalk, up to a land of giants. And the giants and the crown, and the fact that the king actually tried to cut the beanstalk while his daughter was still up was just strange. You really dont feel any connection or care to the characters at all and there was no development or audience connection. The actors were poorly chosen and the princess was just annoying. The giants reminded me of ripoffs of ogres from the hobbit. Yes there is a battle scene and it's semi entertaining but nothing great.

THE MOVIE IT SELF WAS OK. GOOD SPECIAL EFFECTS, IT MORE OR LESS STUCK TO STORY LINE. MAIN CHARATER WAS A LITTLE LAME. COULD HAVE SEEN MORE ACTION. IF HOOLYWOOD IS GOING TO MAKE FAIRY TAILS INTO FULL LENGHT MOTOION PICTURE, THEY
SHOULD STICK TO THE STORY LIKE IN HARRY POTTER SERIES. OR LIKE WHAT THEY ARE DOING TO STAR WARS CONTINUE THE STORY LINE. THEN THEY SHOULD HAVE ONE EPISODE RUN INTO THE NEXT. OR CREATE A TIME LINE LIKE IN STARWARS 1-3.
