Jack the Giant Slayer Review

DoBlu
8 June 2013
  • Excerpt: Jack the Giant Slayer has a body count. People are murdered by the hands of a human villain, burned alive as flaming trees catch them in the heat, and eaten as their heads prove a delicacy to rampaging Giants. This is excitement through egregious violence, vicious and uncouth for the PG-13, hilariously out of tone with the breezy material. We open on young Jack, tucked into bed, being read an ages old fairy tale he will soon live.

  • Excerpt: It’s difficult at this point for a revisionist, large-scale cinematic fairy tale to stand out. The latest, Jack The Giant Slayer , comes on the heels of a two-year flood of similar fare, from Beastly , Red Riding Hood , Snow White And The Huntsman , Mirror Mirror, and Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters on the big screen to Grimm and Once Upon A Time on TV.

  • Summary: It's difficult for blockbuster films to shake the stink of failure suggested by a long delay. Jack The Giant Slayer was originally slated for a mid-2012 release, and it finally arrives after a couple of underwhelming trailers. Extremely low expectations rendered this film slightly more watchable than the chore I anticipated, but even a generous assessment must acknowledge the unfulfilled potential and flat design.
