3.5 stars out of 4 -- "JACK THE GIANT SLAYER is a rousing, original and thoroughly entertaining adventure."
Rolling Stone - 03/14/2013
"As Jack, Nicholas Hoult gives this bean-crazy farm boy a glint of mischief that matches up well with Ewan McGregor, as the heroic knight Elmont."
Empire - 03/15/2013
"Luckily, the Big Unfriendly Giants are a hoot, individually characterised like big bad versions of The Hobbit's dwarves...they're enormous fun."
The beloved fairy tale JACK AND THE BEANSTALK gets the big-screen treatment courtesy of director Bryan Singer (VALKYRIE) and screenwriters Darren Lemke (SHREK FOREVER AFTER), Christopher McQuarrie (THE USUAL SUSPECTS), and Dan Studney in this fantasy adventure about a naïve farm boy who attempts to rescue a beautiful princess from a race of vengeful giants. When Jack (Nicholas Hoult) inadvertently opens a passageway that allows giants to cross into our reality, the towering titans stake their claim on the world of humans. Should they succeed, Jack's kingdom will be but the first of many to fall. Now, in order to save his people and rescue a noble princess, Jack must summon every ounce of bravery to drive out the invading giants.
