Jack The Giant Slayer (Blu-ray Review)

  • Conclusion: It looks good and it sounds great but it failed to intrigue me.  The opening animation started the film out on a bad note for me and the film continued to slide downhill from there.  I will however, put this one on the shelf for six months and then watch it again, in the hopes that next time I can enjoy the movie without my previous expectations detracting from the film.

  • Conclusion: While it never dips beneath watchable and remains polished for all but its prologue, Jack the Giant Slayer is too ordinary and forgettable for all the time and money spent on it.

Jack The Giant Slayer – Michelle’s Review

eclipsemagazine.com
3 March 2013
  • Excerpt: Director Bryan Singer is responsible for directing two of my top 20 favorite films of all time – The Usual Suspects and X2: X-Men United . For a short moment in time he was one of the best filmmakers of the current generation, then he got Superman Returns and somehow lost his mind and ability to direct a movie that makes any kind of sense.  Is Jack The Giant Slayer the movie that returns him to greatness, or at least decentness?  No, a resounding NO.

Jack the Giant Slayer Movie Review

  • Summary: Jack and the Beanstalk takes on a more nefarious twist in this fairy tale battle between good and evil. It remains true to the genre and even improves upon it for more modern movie-goers.

  • Excerpt: The beanstalk has been eliminated from the title of this version of Jack and the adventure that happens when he brings home magic beans, and we have to wait a hell of a long time to see it. When padding out a children's fairy tale to become an epic, CGI-heavy film, you've got to add some story in there somehow, and in its opening act Jack slides painfully from animated recreation of the giant legends to meet-cute between our hero and heroine to the political instability...

  • Conclusion: Far from the giant mess you’d expect from the delayed release, late title change and a production history as muddled as the source material, Singer’s tall tale is snatched from disaster by an all-hell-breaks-loose third act.

  • Conclusion: Filmen innledes av at et par barn blir fortalt fortellingen om kjempene, og hvordan menneskene seiret over dem. Dette kryssklippes med temmelig dårlige animasjonssekvenser som viser hvordan slaget mot kjempene endte. Med andre ord en ganske standard måte å innlede en eventyrfortelling og dens hovedkarakterer på. Barna er selvsagt Jack og prinsesse Isabelle. Det er forsåvidt effektivt, men jeg kan bare ikke fatte og begripe hvorfor animasjonen er så dårlig.
