The film tells the story of Jack, a young farmhand who must rescue a princess from a race of towering giants after inadvertently opening a gateway to their land in the sky. 

Why It Rocks

  1. Marvelous acting including Stanley Tucci, Bill Nighy, Nicolas Hoult and John Kassir.
  2. Jack is courageous and cunning as he puts plans together like staying out of sight from the Giants in Gantua and putting the last bean into General Fallon's mouth.
  3. Stanley Tucci did extremely well with his British accent and his role as Roderick.
  4. Bill Nighy's voice as General Fallon was well chosen.
  5. Decent cinematography.

Bad Qualities

  1. It flopped miserably in the box office.
  2. The uncanny valley on the giants looks obvious.
