Storyline Heading
An ancient war 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.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Adventure Fantasy - This is a harder edged, effects-driven,and more action-oriented take on the classic "Jack and the Beanstalk" story. While there is no overly graphic violence, there are still some intense and scary moments and images that would shake children. Some of the more veteran actors like Ian McShane and Stanley Tucci have smaller supporting roles to the young leads.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good 3-D and CGI issues aside, I'll admit to enjoying Jack the Giant Slayer. It's fast paced, energetic, and enormously likeable. I wasn't strongly reminded of the fable I read as a child; director Bryan Singer has given this a heavy epic fantasy vibe that transforms the story into something a little different.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Very Good "Jack the Giant Slayer" is a rousing, original and thoroughly entertaining adventure. Director Bryan Singer, a first-rate cast and a stellar team of screenwriters, set designers and special-effects wizards have dusted off an old and (let's face it) never particularly compelling fairy tale and have given us a great-looking thrill ride in which we actually care about a number of characters.

USA Today Full Review
Above Average With deftly etched computer-generated imagery, the film looks like an illustrated storybook come to life. The tale is engaging, running circles around January's dreadful Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters and other recent fairy-tale adaptations. But there's little use for the 3-D element, as is so often the case in live-action films.

Entertainment Weekly Full Review
Below Average "Jack" seems designed to appeal to a very narrow, and possibly illusory, demographic: the mature moppet. Loosely based on the English folk tale about a boy who discovers a magic beanstalk that leads to the realm of an evil giant, the film includes scenes of pitched battle that resemble outtakes from one of the "Lord of the Rings" films, as well as the kind of belching-and-flatulence humor popular with preschoolers.

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 135 moviegoers:
CHILDREN:Nearly all the children loved "Jack the Giant Slayer."
TEENS:About 40% of the males loved it and another 40% enjoyed it very much. The remaining 20% rated it as an average movie (enjoyable but nothing special). About two-thirds of the ladies loved it. Equally important is the fact that no one disliked it.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:Great reviews from the males! Over half loved it with most of the rest indicating they enjoyed it very much. Only a small percentage rated it as low as "Average." Two-thirds of the ladies loved it but the remaining third only rated it average, which is a bit disappointing but not bad.
ADULTS:The male and female reviews are very similar. Close to half loved "Jack the Giant Slayer." Another large percentage indicated that they enjoyed it very much. A somewhat small percentage rated it "Good/Average," which is a bit low, but not bad.
