Who does not know about “Jack and the beanstalk” and “jack the giant killer” both are very good bed time stories for kids but in different ways and for different reasons , one is adventurous,fun and full of magic; this one is for little cute kids to have a good dreams while the other is violent, full of myth and adventurous and to make kids strong and now when you combine it, it loses it’s effectiveness.
Jack the Giant Slayer is a 2013 American fantasy adventure film combining 2 stories “Jack the Giant Killer” and “Jack and the Beanstalk”.The plot is about a young farm boy,Jack and princess Isabelle who lives in a Kingdom of Cloister, where they are fascinated by the legend of Erik by hearing stories from his father and Isabelle from her mom and both have a great desire for an adventure.Erik is an ancient king who defeated an army of invading giants in the sky by controlling them with a magical crown.After 10 years jack is sent to the town to sell a horse where he saves Isabelle from thugs and fall in love with her.In a same time Lord roderick finds out that a monk has robed him and he sends his people behind him and that monk gives Jack those beans which he stole.Jack’s uncle scolds him and throws the beans while Isabelle also leaves the castle because her dad wants her to marry roderick.

I really like how the movie was started with telling the story of king Erik but still there was no suspense and good and entertaining or fun magic in the movie.Whole movie is pretty serious and wild of course as all they are doing is chasing giants and killing them,not one but thousands of them.The theme of the movie was pretty clear in the first half of the movie.I think it would be great if they have a little suspense in the movie.I would recommend this movie for one who likes such mix up of stories and like such adventures as I think this movie was okay.
