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.

Jack the Giant Slayer is a quick and simple action adventure that comes loaded with plenty of laughs and CGI spectacle.

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.

Jack The Giant Slayer is an entertaining family adventure, with moments of tension and humour in equal measure.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 ...

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.

Once upon a time Hollywood was not interested in fairy tales. But just like comic books, they have proved to be the perfect big screen adventures for the 3D generation and bumper box office. Time to wake these sleeping giant stories.
