Despite its many flaws, Jack the Giant Slayer is not a bad film, but rather a disappointing one

If this is the new baseline for kid's fantasy films, and not freaking Wrath of the Titans, we're in very good shape.

Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
June 18, 2013
Director Bryan Singer, who made The Usual Suspects and earlier X-Men movies, does a bit of good-hearted slumming with this CGI-heavy fantasy.

Thanks to the marvel of digital visual effects and the clear influence of Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings, [director Bryan] Singer does a terrific job showing us just how realistic a battle set in a fantasy world can look.

... a clever yet gentle twist on a familiar story, and one that multiple generations can share.

Singer is more concerned with old-fashioned storytelling than chasing a target audience's fleeting fads.

March 22, 2013
We may sigh heavily at the thought of yet another fairy tale blockbuster, but the filmmakers and cast here demand a bit more attention. And sure enough, it's refreshingly smarter and funnier than we expect.

March 22, 2013
McGregor's dashing Elmont never loses his posh sang-froid... and with Tucci gleefully hamming it up as the villain, it's the supporting cast who are full of beans, rather than the overshadowed young leads.
March 22, 2013
A story of derring do and social climbing, serving as an excuse for colossal battles with a load more orcs, the true purpose of the movie.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

Far from perfect but not without it's moments of fee-fi-fo-fun.

Singer should be commended for bringing this fairytale to life triumphantly, enlarging it for the cinema screen, and adding that epic quality a film such as this requires.

Its conflation of two old English folk-tales, Jack And The Beanstalk and Jack The Giant Killer, turns out to be among the most enjoyable of fairytale fantasies.

An action-packed and swashbuckling cool fantasy adventure ...
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
March 21, 2013
An adventurous lad in a class-challenged romance and a complete overhaul of a classic. The biggest surprise is how well it's crafted and portrayed by a very able cast.

Watchable in a ridiculous way, and director Bryan Singer supplies quite a bit of entertainment bang for your buck.
