5.0 out of 5 stars Beyond Imagination, 12 July 2008
This review is from: Jack And The Beanstalk - The Real Story [DVD] (DVD)
A superb film...really, really great. A clever take on the story, well written, well acted, great sets and costumes, imaginative and... well...I could go on and on! I was a bit apprehensive at first, thinking that it would be another fairy-tale remake by numbers, but decided to give it a go because I love The Henson Company. I dont think i've ever been so gripped by a film. The acting is top notch all the way through, partly thanks to a strong star cast. Matthew Modine gives a strong performance as Jack, faultless throughout. Mia Sara plays Ondine (Jack's love interest) with emotion and depth. Other names to add to the list are Vanessa Regrave, Daryl Hannah, Jon Voight, Richard Attenborough, Bill Barretta (who has done tons of stuff with the Henson Company) and James Corden (from Gavin and Stacey) All of whom are equally strong. There's so much more I could say, but I think you should watch it for yourself... in fact you'll be doing yourself an injustice if you don't watch it! Last words... I defy anyone not to feel their heart wrenching when Thunderfell falls. Buy....Now....!
