The ancient war between humans and a race of giants is reignited when Jack, a young farmhand fighting for a kingdom and the love of a princess, opens a gateway between the two worlds. – from imdb
I was underwhelmed by Jack the Giant Slayer. I’m actually glad I waited to see this on dvd.
It was my sister asking, “Let’s watch Jack and the Giant Slayer.”
Twenty in minutes in she took a phone call. Comes back and says, “Okay!”
End of movie: “Well, that’s over.”
Usually she all over me about rewinding and what happened.
For me, It really didn’t impress. The story was marginal. The special effect was borderline horrible. You can tell they were in time crunches. Some of the scenes have that detail and others are barely passable.
After viewing, I can see why they moved Jack the Giant Slayer from its summer position of 2012. It would have been utterly crushed. And this is the film, Singer passed on X-Men: First Class to make. Really? wow.
Here’s what I was thinking when I should have been engrossed in this movie:
Damn, Is Nicholas Hoult really tall? Or is Isabelle really short?
Let’s check imdb, left room for better reception on phone… and Tony Stonem is 6’2¾”, that’s 6’3” all day long.
Imdb: has distinctive Vulcan eyebrows.
Me: “Ha!” LOLing. (After about a minute of repeating it and laughing) “Shit, I got a movie to watch.”
