‘Jack the Giant Slayer’ monumental, though more TV friendly

Movie Review


Pauls Valley, Oklahoma —

As some other criticisms have noted, the CGI also feels a bit rough at times and I find little reason to bother seeing it in anything other than standard definition. The costuming for the humans was at times pretty spiffy, especially for Ewan McGregor’s portrayal of Elmont, the leader of the king’s elite guard, but practically no investment again for the giants, who seemed like giant kids who rolled around in the mud like pigs.

That said, this flick should work fine as a mostly tame tale for the wee ones, with no serious investment from the older crowd outside of those looking for a high body count. I don’t plan on a repeat viewing anything soon, but find little regret in spending the time. In the end, I’d say “Jack the Giant Slayer” deserves two and one fourth out of five crowns.
