Jack The Giant Slayer (2013)
This was a good movie. Not very good. Just good. I mean, yeah the CGI was well done considering it is no easy task to put in hundreds of animated warfreak giants attacking miniature people and putting them all together in one place.
The title was not satisfying to me the fact that it is titled The Giant Slayer had me expecting Jack to slay so many giants. Get what I mean? Just like how Hansel and Gretel was titled Witch Hunters.
Jack only killed one giant, an old one at that. The other two he did not do any killing. Well anyway, people will be familiar with how this goes but in a different sort of way. Jack and the Beanstalk are there.
The giants? Well, a different story. And there is no goose laying golden egg here. The story is more so about an ancient war between humans and a race of giants that got reignited when Jack, a young farmhand fighting for a kingdom and the love of a princess, opens a gateway between the two worlds.
The fight was very short. It was only about the humans trying to prevent the giants from breaching the castle as much as they can. Then the battle stopped since Jack got hold of the magical crown that controls the giant’s hearts.
Jack and the Giant Slayer is worth watching still. Not so many good movies out there these days.
