Jack the Giant Slayer is, of course, a movie version of the Jack and the Beanstalk story.
I pretty much agree with the NYT reviewer down the line. The special effects around the giants are really impressive. The beanstalk itself a bit less so.
My daughter, who is five, found it scary at times but in the end is very keen to see it again. She did note, though, a couple of loose ends: whatever happens to the cat, and to the uncle?
Recommended with kids, but not without.
