REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Nothing's perfect, but it's worth seeing.    Readers  4 of 5 [Rate It]

“..the movie's problem is that its script is commoner still, an enchantment-free pretext for animated action, straight-ahead storytelling and ersatz romance..”
by Joe Morgenstern [Wall Street Journal]
1 of 4

“..the film cuts a good-looking trailer, as the desire for summer blockbuster spectacle bleeds into early March. But it falls apart upon closer examination..”
by Peter Hartlaub [San Francisco Chronicle]
4 of 5

“..the film always looks believable, and it's easy to get wrapped into Singer's fairy-tale world. Most of the time, a viewer watches a movie and thinks, "Great special effects"..”
by Randy Cordova [Arizona Republic]

“..it's a tale full of sound and fury (and flying bodies) signifying nothing..”
by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune]

“..a Jack tale that delivered so little pleasure for so many dollars as what we have here...”
by Kenneth Turan [Los Angeles Times]
“.."Jack the Giant Slayer" feels, unsurprisingly, like an attempt to cash in on a trend, recycling storybook characters, situations and battle sequences to mechanical and wearyingly predictable effect..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
