Top Critic Reviews

Fresh: There's more to this Jack and the Beanstalk adaptation than Fee-fi-fo-fum.

- Claudia Puig, USA Today, Thursday, February 28, 2013

Rotten: It feels like a film made by a committee, for a demographic rather than an audience. It's a tale full of sound and fury (and flying bodies) signifying nothing.

- Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune, Thursday, February 28, 2013

Fresh: It's fast, rousing, and blessedly brief - under two hours instead of, say, nine in three bladder-straining installments.

- David Edelstein, Vulture, Monday, March 4, 2013

A runaway princess, a poor farm boy and giants feature in this retelling of Jack and the beanstalk. Jack gets into trouble when a monk swops his horse for some magic beans. Good cast and special effects.

Did anyone involved in making this film think to themselves ''Hang on, hasn't this been done many times before?''
