This might seem like an odd movie for me to give an opinion on, but....I liked it. Now, in the spirit of full disclosure I need to tell you that one of my favorite all time movies (besides the Wizard of Oz, of course) is The Princess Bride. And Jack the Giant Slayer has very much the same feel, although with a lot less comedic lines. It's a fairy tale with a princess and a commoner, a king and a traitor and big bad giants. It had action, but not any of those endless car chases. It had it's share of gross monster stuff, but no screen shots long enough to turn your stomach. It had romance...all g-rated. And it had heroes. And a nice ending. My top compliment: I would watch it again.
