    Tries hard to be great, does not succeed. It manages to be so-so. Gorgeous CGI-matography up in the clouds, the scenery is magnificent. The giants look alright but movement is poorly animated, plus they vary in size from scene to scene like it's nobody's business. The beanstalks are decent enough but overall, the CGI doesn't hold up all the way which breaks the immersion - very disturbing.

    Actors are passable, script is weak, story is lame, people are stupid etc etc. Every piece of even remotely possible gore is effectively neutralized by cutaway shots and bloodless props/CGI. spoiler

    I feel I've been generous in my comment, it's not all bad but there is just nothing worth seeing apart from the giants and their land in the clouds. It's just too childish, weak and inconsistent.

    Not recommended.

    I liked the movie. Nice visual effects, not the best movie of its genre but not the worst either, quite entertaining. Nicholas Hoult was better in X-Men, but he was okay. I liked Stanley Tucci and especially Ewan McGregor, he really made the movie appeal to me a lot more and I agree with Agrimorfee's comment: He really looked like he had fun shooting this.

    [spoiler] Somehow I would have wanted Ewan's character to get the girl in the end but it was of course obvious from the beginning that this was not in the cards for him :) really obvious, so this is probably not even a spoiler, but I marked it anyway just for safety reasons :) [spoiler]
