Jack the Giant Slayer is a 2013 American fantasy adventure film based on the British fairy tales Jack and The Beanstalk and Jack the Giant Killer. The film is directed by Bryan Singer (Best known as the director of X-Men) with a screenplay written by Darren Lemke, Christopher McQuarrie and Dan Studney and stars Nicholas Hoult, Eleanor Tomlinson, Stanley Tucci, Ian McShane, Bill Nighy, and Ewan McGregor.  


When young farmhand Jack (Nicholas Hoult) unwittingly opens a portal between his realm and a race of giants, it rekindles an ancient war. Roaming Earth for the first time in centuries, the fearsome giants seek to reclaim the land they lost long ago. Jack has to face an army of foes that he thought existed only in legend, but through his arduous fight for the kingdom and its people, he may win the love of a brave princess, perhaps becoming a legend himself.

Good Qualities

  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.
  6. Great musical score, coming of John Ottoman.

Bad Qualities

  1. Bland and impersonal story that changed most of the fairy tale's material like replacing Jack's mother with his uncle.
  2. King Brahmwell can sometimes be unlikeable when he tried to have her daughter, Isabelle to grow up and not act like an explorer.
  3. The uncanny valley on the giants looks obvious, through that may have been due to Digital Domain's bankruptcy during production.



  • It is the first New Line Cinema film to produced by Legendary Pictures.
