Item Details

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, the giants strive to reclaim the land they one lost, forcing Jack into the battle of his life to stop them.

A reimagining of the story of Jack and the Beanstalk. Excellent acting and special effects and and interesting storyline should make this a favourite for families.

Twist in the classic fairy tale is good but poorly executed. Stick with the other film version, read the story or watch Shrek for a better time. Instead of Fee-fi-fo-fum, I got Ho-ho-hum-hum with those disjointed dialogues and scene changes.

Surprisingly a very good movie. Yes, it's the "Jack and the Beanstalk" story - however it is pure entertainment for young and old alike. Thoroughly enjoyable and worth a look.

If you liked the Hobbit, this was as good, I thought.

I really did not know if I was going to enjoy this movie and planned to return it without watching it. I am glad I did watch it because once I started, I couldn't stop until the end. Very entertaining and some funny comments that I thought added to the picture. A lot of great action as well.

Bryan Singer has expanded on the Jack and the Beanstalk story and successfully created a captivating fairytale. Thought it might be terrifying for my little ones: 10, 6, 4, and 2; but, they were entranced and suffered no nightmares following their viewing. People are eaten and tossed about, but there is no gorey violence. Deaths are mostly implied. The giants, mostly look like very ugly, oversized men who really, really need a bath, a dentist, and a wardrobe consultant. As I am Catholic, and a big fan of St. Thomas Aquinas, I was a little put off by the depiction of the medieval monks turning to the "dark arts" to create their own tower of Babel in the original beanstalk, and then resorting to even "darker arts" to deal with the giant problem.

Uncle (p.o.'d at his nephew for the 'goods' received in trade for his horse): "...I don't ask for much... In return for all those years I put food in your belly; clothes on your back; a roof over your head... So what do I have to show for it? ...Beans!" Jack: "I'll, I'll take them to The Abbey tomorrow and we'll tell the monks what happened!" Uncle: "You believe that story?" Jack: "I mean, he was a monk!" Uncle: "-Cuz he wore a robe... funny haircut?"
