Jack the Giant Slayer tells the story of an ancient war that is reignited when a young farmhand unwittingly opens a gateway between our world and a fearsome race of giants. Unleashed on the Earth for the first time in centuries, the giants strive to reclaim the land they once lost, forcing the young man, Jack, into the battle of his life to stop them. Fighting for a kingdom, its people, and the love of a brave princess, he comes face to face with the unstoppable warriors he thought only existed in legend—and gets the chance to become a legend himself.

impression was that it was only so so. Maybe it was low expectations but I tried not to judge but only to watch and was surprised
to find that I thought it was a lot of fun. The 3D looked really good and the picture quality of the 3D and Blu-Ray was top notch.
In my opinion, most of the time, films are just as enjoyable or sometimes even more so in 2D but in this case I think the 3D
was a positive addition.
At worst, this was just a pleasant diversion that should have been a lot better. At any rate, I enjoyed it enough that I wouldn't mind watching it again someday. It's a keeper.

An excellent fantasy movie that the trailers don't do justice, but the reviews will give you a good idea. This has far more depth than I expected. Although the special effects are great, the movie has a good story, action, romance, horror, and more. Loosely following the fairytale "Jack and the Beanstalk", Jack receives magic beans for the sale of a horse (cow in the fairytale), but the similarity ends there. Oh sure there is an ornate egg, but not solid gold and no goose that laid it. Nonetheless a great story and script, wonderful casting, exceptional acting, superb directing, excellent F/X, and lovely music. Jack's uncle is mad with him taking beans for his horse, and throws them on the floor. One goes through the floor and grows. While the princess visits him for an earlier rescue she ends up in his house at the top of a beanstalk in the land of horrible giants. Jack informs the king and a group of soldiers are sent to rescue her. So as not to spoil the rest, suffice it to say the movie is well worth viewing and owning and I plan to get the Blu-ray once it drops from the absolutley ridiculous price of about thirty-five dollars to under fifteen dollars.
Recommendations: Stardust,Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief,Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters,Clash of the Titans (2010),Immortals,Jason And The Argonauts, and Jack the Giant Killer (cheesy by todays standards, but still fun).
