Went to see this on a date with my husband. Enjoyed it so much that I took four kids (12, 10, 9 and 6) back along with two grandparents. Everyone loved it. The story is well adapted. The giants are perfect and all of the characters have depth and are well played. For parents, they ARE man-eating giants, but this fact is made obvious WITHOUT the gratuitous gore thati many films choose to include. There is death but it is implied in many cases. No blood that I remember. No sex nor even innuendo. The giants are bad but not evil. scary enough but they do have personality and humor. Only profanity that I remember was one "hell". . Very good movie. Reminded me very much of The Princess Bride.

This movie is action packed! I am amazed when people don't get that this is on the same level as ice age, bugs life, and monster's ink. It is not intended to be anything else but animated entertainment.

We loved this movie. The action was exciting, the story was right on and the graphics were awesome. I would recommend it to everyone who loves great movies.

This is a movie that charged for 3D and the only experience was the beans being thrown down around you. It was a drag of a movie and a miser' able (context of another movie) experience and one I hope never to repeat. Oh, there were 7 people in a theatre set for 260.

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.)
