Jack The Giant Slayer (2013)

PREPARE FOR A GIANT ADVENTURE Bryan Singer a director who I quite like for his work on the first two X-Men movies and even Superman returns direct an action based on an old fable film (which was kind of like a trend with Snow White & The Huntsmen). With one of the co-writers being Christopher McQuarrie who has written a lot of Tom Cruise films I like. They together give us Jack the Giant Joy-ride. 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. I wasn't expecting much with this I just watched Snow White & The Hunstman recently and that was just not very memorable aside from the action. This film didn't have a lot of action in it so it had to rely on everything else to ignite my excitement. I was pleasantly surprised I didn't hate this, there are two big problems I had with the movie. My negatives with this film are obvious, the most obvious one being the CG it looks good in some moments but then when it looks bad it looks really bad. The film had some terrible effects at moments. The opening where Jack's father and Isabelle's mother tell them the legend of the beanstalk the story is shown in the form of some terrible animation effects I mean I see better animation on Nickelodeon it's that bad. The ending got me angry it set up a perfect ending but then they ruin it by cutting to modern day. Everything else I quite enjoyed especially the actors. Nicholas Hoult as Jack was an awesome casting choice, he was the best part of the movie. Ewan McGregor was good as Elemont and Eleanor Tomlinson I thought was great as Isabelle. The direction by Bryan Singer is very good he seems to have crafted the goal for a movie like this a fun adventure and that's what this movie needed to be and he succeeded. Jack the Giant Slayer is by no means a perfect movie but I do believe it's a great one, it's the best of these recent fable-action movies that I've seen and I'm a big fan of myths& legends, it has great acting, some great action and is a fun romp from beginning to end I'm giving Jack The Giant Slayer an eight out of ten.

Few Jack and the Beanstalk movies

With a fairy tale as famous as "Jack And The Beanstalk" it makes sense that we'd create a few movie versions made entirely about it. For a lot of the time, the film does in fact work. It's really let down by this ending. The story is that well Jack grows a beanstalk and finds not just one, but many giants living in the clouds above. They bring in some interesting ideas about religion and how it could be related to this story. Never thought I'd see that introduced, but it's still handled pretty well. I admit the CGI does look off in many places, especially the beginning.

The ending is where it really loses it for me. I was really looking forward to see a big epic battle between the people and the giants. The plot features this magic crown which by some way mind controls the giants by whoever wears it. In the end, Jack wears it and he stops the giants from fighting. I really was looking forward to a big fight scene with everybody but unfortunately it ended because of this weird really unexplained item. It's then revealed to be a story said by Jack to his children and now it's modern times where giants are real. The buildup was good but it was mediocre because of that lame ending. **1/2

Very good, would watch again; great pacing; entertaining for all ages!

After watching this movie again after seeing it when it was released in 2013, I really enjoyed it as much or even more than I did then. The film honestly has really good pacing and I never found myself bored or disinterested in the film as the movie progressed. All of the scenes are balanced well and there aren't any that drag on longer than they should. The characters are relatable and I really love the interactions between the princess and Jack during the film. Their small moments in the movie are priceless and heartwarming. What I like most about the movie is the attention to detail for the time period of the movie. The setting is sometime after the plague and before Columbus set sail to the Americas after listening to dialogue about these events in the movie. I am guessing like 13th century England. But the castle, the technology and the lives of the people in the film are pretty accurate to the time period. Jack working as a tenant farmer for example was really common at the time. Also, there's a lot of arguments from the princess about societal roles that are really interesting to watch how the King and other's enforce the societal roles. I would watch again for sure because I loved the movie and wish more movies were made like this! 9/10
