Jack the Giant Slayer (2013)


Link: Jack the Giant Slayer

Summary: When a beanstalk grows and takes a kingdom’s princess with it to the land of the giants far above, the young Jack climbs up to rescue her, only to get mixed up in a deadly battle between the giants and the kingdom below.

Thoughts: While I am very much enjoying the current string of fairy-tales-re-imagined films, this film is not a very impressive contribution.  The story was all over the place, character motivations were either non-existent or made no sense, the ability for main characters to fall from heights and not get hurt was ridiculous, and hardly any of the humor worked for me.  The only thing epic about this film was its fail.  My only guess is that their target audience was children who would not be as critical as me.
