1.0 out of 5 stars Worse than a film-school experiment 18 May 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Do not confuse this title with the block-buster, "Jack and the Giant Slayer". I made that mistake and have been subjected to the worse movie I've ever seen. Some low points to demonstrate that this is an objective, unbiased assessment:

* Props that make Blue Peter look like fine engineering
* Acting on par with what you would expect from a local secondary school's drama club production
* Special effects from the 50's with 3D actors in front of a totally flat, blurred-out canvas scenery back-drop and motorcycle shots from underneath with the sky as backdrop and the camera jiggling around to simulate movement
* As for the dialogue and screenplay, words fail me

The one positive point is the CGI which is passable for young children though rather incongruous in the context of the above failings, not to mention somewhat embarrassing in it's carefully limited use to keep the budget as low as possible.

It is costing me 2.75 to send this back. I think that's rather unfair as the bluray is of such low quality that amazon should not be selling it and then I would not have ordered this rubbish by mistake. I am astonished that anything of this low quality could be seriously released.

If you enjoy collecting movies so bad your friend's wouldn't believe you until you've proven it to them through their own eyes then this film would make an excellent addition to your collection. For everyone else, avoid!

1.0 out of 5 stars Jack and the giant killer 2 Nov 2013
Format:Blu-ray
This film was generally awful! No giants and worse than a bad bbc drama! No point in wasting two hours of your life watching it. It didn't get going and consisted of random boring explanations of why things were supposed to be happening. Generally bad acting with people you'll have never heard of. The cover was the most exciting part. Be warned. Unfortunately I had to give it a one star because there was nothing less. Unless you want to sleep do not purchase.

1.0 out of 5 stars WASTE OF MONEY 19 Sep 2013
By Ian
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
MY FAULT, BUT I THOUGHT THIS WAS JACK THE GIANT SLAYER, THE SAME MOVIE I WENT TO THE CINEMA TO WATCH.

IT IS NOT THAT FILM! IT IS SOME PATHETIC FILM OF SIMILIAR TITLE. I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THE WRITING SAYS ON THE COVER AS IT'S IN GERMAN.

LIKE I SAID, MY FAULT AND A COMPLETE WASTE OF 11.05P

CAUTION TO ALL POTENTIAL BUYERS OF THIS MOVIE.

READ THE TITLE AND READ WHAT EVERYONE ELSE HAS SAID ABOUT THIS FILM.

DONT DO WHAT I DID AND ORDERED THIS BLU-RAY THINKING IT WAS 'JACK THE GIANT SLAYER'

OR, DONT DRINK ALCOHOL BEFORE GOING ON AMAZON. LOL

3.0 out of 5 stars Misleading Sleeve 9 Aug 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The film is just a cheapie. The sleeve is completely misleading verging on outright lying. A kids' film but only watchable once.
