About the Movie

An age-old war is reignited when a young farmhand unwittingly opens a gateway between our world and a fearsome race of giants. Unleashed on the Earth for the first time in centuries, the long-banished giants strive to reclaim the land they once lost, forcing the young man, Jack (Nicholas Hoult), into the battle of his life to stop them. Fighting for a kingdom, its people, and the love of a brave princess, he comes face to face with the unstoppable warriors he thought only existed in legend . . . and gets the chance to become a legend himself.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: The movie feels so much like a video game that your fingers instinctively itch to do something, though a Jack video game isn't one we'd really want to play. – Mary F. Pols, TIME Magazine, Mar 1, 2013

Fresh: Jack the Giant Slayer is slight, but consistently amusing. – Tom Charity,, Mar 1, 2013

Fresh: The script sets up the situation and characters nicely, and the actors are terrific. – Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger, Mar 1, 2013

Rotten: While it's fine for a director to explore his childhood inspirations, you hope he would bring something a bit more personal to it. – Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail, Mar 1, 2013

Pretty good

There are some intense scenes . So, I. Don't recommend your children watching it alone. My teenage daughter loved it a lot , but mostly because of the guy that played Jack. Overall I really enjoyed it. The plot is great and the giants are disgusting. Enjoy!


Fast moving, action packed fun for the whole family. Love & good prevail in this fairy tale that comes to life. Fee Fi Fo Fum, I smell the blood of an Englishman! Fun!!


...follows story line with an updated twist, awesome cinematography, and yet only mildly entertaining.
