Jack the Giant Slayer Movie Review (2013)
The Good: The story line was kind of intriguing. It goes a lot deeper into the Jack and the Bean Stalk fairy tale and definitely gets a lot darker with it. While the movie was 2hrs long, it still keeps you engaged because as one crisis is almost over, another turn in the plot develops.
The Bad: The 3D was "OK" but not spectacular. Due to it's PG-13 rating there was literally not an ounce of blood at all. This is in spite of the fact that the Giants were literally biting people's heads off, and eating them alive. But not one drop of blood. It doesn't ruin the movie, but it still is kind of odd when you consistently see those violent scenes.
The Reason: This is definitely worth a watch, and I'd say over Oz The Great and Powerful. I'd hardly say it is a "kiddie-movie" either, so adults can get a little something out of this too. If you see it in the theaters, I don't think you'll regret it. This wasn't a great movie, and it wasn't bad. It was just entertaining. As a rental this would make for a fun adventure movie to just sit and watch.
The Rating: 6.5/10
