Jack the Giant Slayer, from the talented director Bryan Singer (The Usual Suspects, X-Men, X2), is a dreadfully dull and soulless film. Its attempt at achieving an exhilarating spectacle is a pretty bad failing, as Singer fills the screen with overblown, unconvincing CGI and giants that are about as digitally ugly as those transformers. The film lacks genuine excitement and fails to provide these poorly developed characters with much color or depth. I was hoping for some fun out of this film - but ultimately it's a boring, bland, lifeless piece of crap. 1.5/4

Basierend auf dem TV Jack the Giant Slayer rückt hier eine Horde riesiger CGI Klopse an, die Windmühlen herausreissen und dicke Felsbrocken schleudern können. Derweilen bemüht sich Jack, der aussieht wie ein Hipster, um die Gunst der Prinzessin. Ich hab den Film durch Zufall gesehen und war angenehm überrascht! Jack the Giant Slayer ist ein mitreissendes und originelles Abenteuer geworden! Bryan Singer und sein Team haben ein schönes Märchen für gross und klein entworfen! Es bleibt sogar etwas Raum, um auch Mitleid mit den Giants zu empfinden, denn so ein Leben als Riese ist auch nicht leicht (doch dazu später)... Aber der Reihe nach: Das Märchen mit den Riesen wird eingangs gleich zwei Mal gelesen: Jack, ein achtjähriger Junge, der auf einer Farm lebt, hat es schon so oft "gefressen...

Giant Absurdity

Giant Absurdity! I am slightly repulsive with the title. The Giant Slayer. Alright folks, time to face the truth. Did Jack slay the giants in this film? Well probably two of them. But neither were slayed. It was all a dipstick stereotype and it is clear that Byran Singer (Superman Returns fame) was preposterous in filming. Nicholas Hoult and Evan McGregor were just like dolls facing the CGI giants, in their attempt to save the princess from being cooked. Where is the fun? Where is the energy? Loony in all aspects, enters this all absurd adventure film. The word “Slayer” means some power or some force with which killings are to be done. Singer should have named it as Giant Killer, instead of going harsh on the term.

If the third act (giants throwing fire trees, humans hitting fire arrow...

Not a 'giant' flop in my opinion.

Even though the initial outcome of this film was really poor as a consensus of people seem to think it relied too heavily on CGI effects (This didn't bother me whatsoever and don't know what people were expecting from X-men's Singer as he had to depict actual giants on the screen? Andre The Giant passed away in the 90's and he still stands as the only 'real' giant in my own opinion) I actually enjoyed it. The director of some of the X-men films Bryan Singer takes on the age old Grimm fairytale 'Jack And The Beanstalk' Jack, this time round portrayed by young and upcoming star Nicholas Hoult (About A Boy,X-Men First Class, Warm Bodies) is a young boy with his head in the clouds so-to-speak and is infatuated by an old town legend Erik, an ancient king who one time defeated an army of inva...

From what I understand, the people who have seen this did really like it - it's just that it didn't attract enough of those people I admit after being burned a bit by John Carter, I'm much pickier on big budget films. I will see Oz - but I won't watch Jack until I can do it from my room.

I saw Jack the Giant Slayer and loved it! The CGI action added to the story, but didn't overwhelm it.

I have yet to see this one, but I had hoped Jack the Giant Slayer would do well. I wonder if people in the studio will lose their jobs over this.

Is anyone else getting a John Carter vibe from this movie? Everything I've seen suggests that the story is going to be too heavily reliant on CGI effects and not matter who is involved, I have a feeling they're not going to list this near the top of their film resume.

With a reported $180 million budget (with some placing it closer to $200) - I see this as the first big-budget movie to fall flat this year. Whether it qualifies as a certified bomb remains to be seen - but it better hope that foreign grosses turn out well.
