Jack The Giant Slayer 2013 DivX-HVS Eng.avi [BETTER]


Review: Jack the Giant Slayer (2013)

Jack the Giant Slayer is a 2013 action-adventure fantasy film directed by Bryan Singer and starring Nicholas Hoult, Eleanor Tomlinson, Ewan McGregor, Stanley Tucci, Ian McShane, Bill Nighy and Eddie Marsan. It is based on the fairy tales of Jack and the Beanstalk and Jack the Giant Killer.

The film follows Jack (Hoult), a young farmhand who accidentally opens a gateway to a world of giants when he trades his horse for some magic beans. He soon finds himself in a quest to rescue Princess Isabelle (Tomlinson), who has been kidnapped by the giants, and to stop the evil Lord Roderick (Tucci) from using the beans to unleash an army of giants on the human world.

The film is a visually stunning spectacle that features impressive CGI effects and action sequences. The giants are well-designed and menacing, and the scenes of them attacking the human kingdom are thrilling and intense. The film also has a good sense of humor and adventure, with some witty dialogue and charming performances from the cast. Hoult and Tomlinson have a sweet chemistry as the star-crossed lovers, while McGregor and Marsan provide comic relief as Jack's loyal companions. Tucci and Nighy are also enjoyable as the villains, who ham it up with gusto.

However, the film is not without its flaws. The plot is predictable and clichÃd, with few surprises or twists. The characters are also underdeveloped and stereotypical, with little depth or motivation. The film lacks emotional resonance and originality, and feels like a generic Hollywood blockbuster that tries to appeal to everyone but fails to stand out. The film also suffers from a tonal inconsistency, as it shifts from a dark and gritty fantasy to a light-hearted and whimsical fairy tale.

Jack the Giant Slayer is a fun and entertaining film that delivers on its promise of giant-sized action and adventure. It is not a masterpiece or a classic, but it is a decent popcorn flick that can be enjoyed by fans of the genre. It is worth watching for its stunning visuals and charming cast, but do not expect too much from its story or characters.The film was released on March 1, 2013 in North America and on various dates in other countries. It received mixed reviews from critics, who praised its visual effects and cast, but criticized its story and tone. The film was also a box office disappointment, grossing $197.7 million worldwide against a budget of $195 million[^1^] [^2^]. It was considered one of the biggest flops of 2013[^3^].

Despite its poor performance, the film did receive some recognition and awards. It was nominated for four Saturn Awards, including Best Fantasy Film and Best Special Effects, and won one for Best Production Design. It also received a nomination for Best Visual Effects at the BAFTA Awards[^4^]. The film has a cult following among some fans of fantasy and fairy tale movies.In conclusion, Jack the Giant Slayer is a film that tries to combine the classic fairy tales of Jack and the Beanstalk and Jack the Giant Killer into a modern action-adventure fantasy. It has some impressive visual effects and a talented cast, but it fails to deliver a compelling and coherent story. It is a film that might appeal to some fans of the genre, but it is not a memorable or remarkable one. aa16f39245
