MOVIE REVIEW - "JACK THE GIANT SLAYER"



Here is another fairy tale that has been turned into a movie, originally known as "Jack and the Beanstalk". I guess it has become a trend to do that kind of thing these days. The last movie of the same genre that I watched was "Hansel and Gretel the Vampire Hunter" but I forgot to write the review.


"Jack the Giant Slayer" was the story of Jack who went up the beanstalk to save the princess from the giants and then they fell in love with each other. Of course in this version, Jack was much braver and his actions more heroic. There were a lot of fighting scenes, which you people will love very much and with the assistance of CGI, fairy tales were never the same again.

All in all, it was an entertaining show, the violence level was tolerable and the most exciting part was when you thought everything was over, it then continued on for a few more minutes with more fighting scenes and explosion and giants running amuck. I have been seeing too many giants already recently and I am starting to believe they do exist.
