Movie Reviews

  • 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 ]
  • 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
    1 of 4 by Peter Hartlaub [San Francisco Chronicle ]
  • 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"
    4 of 5 by Randy Cordova [Arizona Republic ]
  • it's a tale full of sound and fury (and flying bodies) signifying nothing
    2 of 4 by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune ]
  • it is highly likely you'll forget the movie by the time you go to bed
    Review rate : C+ by Jordan Hoffman [Film.com ]
  • is the kind of old-fashioned, entertaining fantasy-adventure you once saw regularly in theaters
    3 of 4 by Rafer Guzman [Newsday ]
  • handsome and moderately entertaining adventure
    2.5 of 4 by Claudia Puig [USA Today ]
  • a stalker movie - in more ways than one
    2.5 of 4 by Steven Rea [Philadelphia Inquirer ]
  • a Jack tale that delivered so little pleasure for so many dollars as what we have here.
    1 of 5 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 ]
