Summary: Okay the 1962 movie was called jack the giant killer and this movie is called slayer?. This movie had a lot of mix review's just like the hobbit but this movie was fun I mean the visual effect's was not good but it's not bad.
Excerpt: Although the picture and the sound are second to none recently the film itself just is not that great I am afraid to say. It is not totally rubbish and is well worth a rental but I could not recommend a purchase of this movie as I firmly believe that it has little replay value.
Excerpt: Even though the initial outcome of this film was really poor as a consensus of people seem to think it relied too heavily on CGI effects (This didn't bother me whatsoever and don't know what people were expecting from X-men's Singer as he had to depict actual giants on the screen? Andre The Giant passed away in the 90's and he still stands as the only 'real' giant in my own opinion) I actually enjoyed it.
Excerpt: Jack The Giant Slayer exceeded my expectations by a wide margin. It may prove to be one of the biggest flops of the year, but it will not be due to the quality of the film itself. Maybe my expectations were too low coming in, but I really enjoyed this adolescent adventure from the X-men director (why didn’t they use that more in the marketing?
Excerpt: This movie had a lot of potential but it didn't quite get there. It sets up a nice premise where you think you're going to get nice round main characters that equally add to the movie, but no. The princess is the damsel in distress and falls behind Jack when they set her up as some adventurer. Nicholas Hoult does well and fits the part but it's not much of a part. Ewan McGregor has the best lines and hair.
Summary: I'll admit it. I went in with the lowest expectations imaginable. Having seen the film bomb with the critics and the American Box Office audience (worse than John Carter!) surely this couldn't be worth my time? I was pleasantly surprised. This big-budget, rip-roaring, action-packed fairytale adaptation grew on me to the point where, once it was over, I cared about Jack and his sweet princess.
