“Watch Jack the Giant Hunter movie” this is not a remake of Nathan Juran , 1962 , adapted it to Jack the giant killer , an English tale set in the time of King Arthur. It is not a faithful adaptation of the story Jack and the Beanstalk , the story in three acts, in which Jack steals the treasures of an Ogre , the goose that lays the golden eggs , with the partial support of its woman. So somewhere halfway between the two works , to look for the scenario that ” Jack the Giant Slayer” bearing its original title rather well , since here the young man and the king’s troops destroyed number of giant evil .
The film opens on a legend told to children, a link between heaven and earth , respective countries of humans and giants, and how an ancient king managed to keep the giants at bay with a crown for the control . If the parallel stories of the legend, the princess told by his mother and his father Jack , combine in a rather fluid editing, graphic treatment of the story is not very happy, like a bad video game, the schematic outline but it is true to distinguish the sometimes romanticized past of what happens next .
After a jump in time , we end up in the Middle Ages , a young peasant being dragged along on an adventure combining impossible love between different classes ( the beggar and the princess ) , discover a fantastic world hanging in the air and titanic battles against hordes of giants eager to avenge a people that has enslaved and forced into exile . Away from the flamboyance of a ” Lord of the Rings ” film however eyeing the trilogy by Peter Jackson, by including the structure of the land battle , once the giants down to earth . ” Jack the Giant Hunter ” delivers a lot of adventures and smoothly mounted scenes, thanks to the direction of tensioning a Bryan Singer always effective and gifted household effects .
