Review of Jack the Giant Slayer

Note: This review will contain minor spoilers, though nothing major will be revealed.

Jack the Giant Slayer has been getting many comparisons to last year's John Carter. Both were big-budget March releases, and both had high hopes for sequels. However, the box office returns for both films have been extremely underwhelming. While I am no fan of John Carter, at least it wasn't a comp... read more

"At last, mankind has returned."

Imagine if someone at Disney wrote a Jack and the Beanstalk animated movie at some point in the 1990s employing all of the company's trademark staples, but decided to shelve the project. Now imagine that someone dusted off the screenplay two decades later amid the fairy tale reboot craze, and decided to transform it into a live-action blockbuster. Th... read more

FIRST IMPRESSIONS

In this take on the classic fairytale, Princess Isabelle runs away from home and takes shelter from the rain in Jack's house. Then the beanstalk grows up through the floor, pinning the house on the top, so Jack joins a team sent by the king to rescue the princess.

An average movie

“Next week, I will probably see ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ (apparently, it is already a massive success at the box-office) and, in the meantime, I thought I could see Bryan Singer’s previous directing effort. Well, after ‘Valkyrie’ and ‘Superman Returns’, it was another flop for Singer and after watching the damned thing, I can’t say it really deserved better. Basically, it is another modernizing of a traditional fairy tale and with those, it is always a tricky gamble. At least, it remains a pretty cool story and, I have to admit it, they almost got it right. Indeed, Nicholas Hoult was a fairly good choice to play the lead and I liked the way that it didn’t take hours before they grew the beanstalk. Unfortunately, the rest of the story didn’t work very well. Indeed, it” read more

“FIRST IMPRESSIONS

In this take on the classic fairytale, Princess Isabelle runs away from home and takes shelter from the rain in Jack's house. Then the beanstalk grows up through the floor, pinning the house on the top, so Jack joins a team sent by the king to rescue the princess.

In the opening scenes, the movie was just what I thought it would be: a predictable but still interesting story with straightforward fairytale sensibilities. They play the adventurous princess who's being forced to marry card, which had me calmly thinking, "Yeah, yeah. Get on with it." But the villain is painfully obvious right from the start; he is straight-up boring.

The CGI looks just as fake as I thought it would. And, as the film progresses, it just seems to get worse and worse” read more

Misguided fantasy epic

“"At last, mankind has returned."

Imagine if someone at Disney wrote a Jack and the Beanstalk animated movie at some point in the 1990s employing all of the company's trademark staples, but decided to shelve the project. Now imagine that someone dusted off the screenplay two decades later amid the fairy tale reboot craze, and decided to transform it into a live-action blockbuster. The result would resemble 2013's Jack the Giant Slayer, a misguided fantasy epic and a total waste of time. Directed by Bryan Singer, the movie was meant to be released in June 2012 but was delayed about nine months for unclear reasons, and underwent a title change from Jack the Giant Killer to the less vicious Jack the Giant Slayer. Although it's an attractive-looking big-budget movie, it only sporadica” read more

However, the box office returns for both films have been extremely underwhelming. While I am no fan of John Carter, at least it wasn't a complete disaster. The same cannot be said of Jack the Giant Slayer.

Inspired by the classic fairy tale, Jack and the Beanstalk, this modern re-imagining follows more or less the same story initially. 18 year-old Jack is to sell his horse in the market, though he is swindled by a crafty monk, and given only "magic" beans for the horse. Jack is warned not to get them wet, but of course, Jack fails” read more
