    Pros:

    Storyline was interesting and the special effects of the giants and the beanstalk were great!

    Cons:

    Probably wouldn't recommend this movie for small children as the giants can get quite scary at times (good for the adults though)!

    Overall:

    Great movie! Jack was very convincing and the action moved at a fast pace the whole time. Ewan McGregor's played a great supporting actor and the movie had lots of action. Would recommend seeing this!

    Pros:

    The animation is spectacular, blending fake characters with live actors well. Additionally, most of the animation and movement worked well in 3D.

    All actors were perfectly cast, making their respective characters believable. Standouts were Stanley Tucci as "Roderick" (whom once again you would not believe is the same actor from the likes of "The Hunger Games", "The Devil Wears Prada" or even "ER") Ewan McGregor as "Elmot", and of course Nicholas Hoult as "Jack", who continues to be charming and lovable in the "Boy-next-door" style roles.

    The script, and accompanied acting style, was perfectly aligned to the typical pantomime, and often felt like it came straight from a stage production.

    Cons:

    At times, it felt like the film couldn't settle on a target audience. With the pantomime style dialouge/acting (and humor) it felt like it was for a younger audience, but the level of violence seemed more appropriate for an older audience.

    Isabelle, the Princess of the show, felt under-used. She starts out as a strong female lead, wanting to go off on adventures of her own. But quickly becomes more of your typical "Damsal in Distress". Granted, she is never whimpy or complainging, and faced whatever was thrown at her, but it would have been nice to see her partake in more action.

    Overall:

    Overall, "Jack The Giant Slayer" was a lot of fun. It was well produced and directed, with a great cast. It has a good pace, and despite it's length (at around 2 hours) I never found myself bored. Well worth seeing, but do take note of the rating (M - for mature audience).
