A rather simplistic fairy tale about beans (something that has to be consumed by great quantities, irrespective of your likes & dislikes, if your parents are keen on vegetables), giants and treasure, gets a longish updating in this film, involving secret worlds, mythical crowns, nasty conspiracies, valour, love, luck etc. etc. My daughter had enjoyed it considerably, and so did I. Although a bit excessively serious at times, the film is definitely watchable.

Well acted and well directed. Whoever designed Ian McShane's outfits had a sense of humour. I hope they paid him loads of money

Lots of fun and adventure in this modern re-working of a classic fairytale. The giants are brilliant, with some lovely cheeky directorial detail - nose picking, bogey-eating, farting etc. Not sure about the casting of Ewan McGregor as the loyal protector of the Princess - his fake accent and trendy, tidy hairdo just don't do it for me.

I went to see this in 3D with my son, who worked on the film for around three weeks, only to find he had been edited. I then bought the DVD because of his credit. The story is based around the fable with enhancement by CGI. I did not think the 3D was that good and in some sequences the CGI is a bit 'iffy'. Not a bad film as my grandchildren really enjoyed it. It's worth a look if you haven't seen it.

I reckon this one is really just for the kids. Very little ones will find the giants quite frightening, but an 8 or 9 year old might think it one of the best films they've ever seen! Brave farm boy Jack, magic beans, knights in armour, a feisty, beautiful princess, a died-in-the-wool, dark-hearted baddie, and enormous, funny, stinky, dangerous giants... What more do you need?!

Good adventure with the heroism spread about a bit so not the main characters are actually likeable! Snow White and the Huntsman was really terrible (honestly really really bad) so this was a refreshing change. Don't expect anything other than adventurous entertainment though.

A great adaptation of the "Jack and the beanstalk" story. Good use of 3D, although no "pop outs", well produced , most enjoyable to watch. Having enjoyed the DVD version of the movie, I decided to invest in the 3D BluRay version and was not disappointed. Deserves more than 5 stars, thoroughly recommended!
