“FEE FYY FOO FUMM! ASK NOT WHEN THE THUNDER COMES…!!” Jack the Giant Slayer. Well, there goes our childhood memories. But does that mean our childhood memory is totally ruined? Not exactly ruined…it just got upgraded somehow! The story of Jack the Giant Slayer was an adaptation from a well-known fairy tale we all used to remember, Jack and the Beanstalk. So how did this movie go?

Ewan McGregor as a Knight once more

Ewan McGregor potrayed as a Knight. Before this he was Obi Wan Kenobi in Star Wars.

The movie opening alone speak out loud for itself. Epic music, great cinematography, striking unexpected scenes and a very straight forward movie with less complication although it has the element of Lord Of The Rings inside it. When it was first shown in the trailer, I thought there were going to be some good giants in the movie. Something like Dreamworks production would definitely do but they did not. Then again, I must say the movie was an entirely worth it with much filled creativity.

Nicholas Hoult as Jack

Another none pretty boy element spotted. Nicholas Hoult was a Zombie in Warm Bodies and now he kills’ Giant.

The main hero was none other than Nicholas Hoult. He was once a mutant in X-Men First Class, a Zombie in Warm Bodies, and now he is known as Jack, the Giant Slayer in this movie. It seems that this guy tend to change his occupation endlessly.

Eleanor Tomlinson wanted adventure

Like a normal childhood fairy tail, it ended with “…and they live happily ever after.” Then again, the entire whole movie was not really meant for young kids due to its much violence. You will see Giants’ eating humans like snacks, they go all out war, and they even smelt human fear.

Seriously speaking, in this movie, I was impressed with what they did on those Giants. They were all not just only huge but when I looked at the CGI computer expression for the Giants’, I was amazed by it. It was as if like every single detailed part in this movie was not to be taken lightly.

Overall, my conclusion for this movie, was pure epic and awesome. It had a lot of unexpected scenes inside it and to add it up, it was really fun watching it. A normal childhood fairy tale transformed into an entire whole new fairy tale! Yet still, that does not mean the whole childhood memories comes to an end. But rather instead, it is a new beginning. I still think the movie industry today should concentrate more on folk lore elements.

Hensel and Gretel was a success…and now this…Jack the Giant Slayer..! So folks, buckle up as Giants’ are coming to invade in a cinema near you! Just be sure you do not let them smell your fear. Cause if they do, they will take you in on a silver platter.
