The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

If your love of an­i­mated films runs to Toy Story and IceAge, this retelling of the Jack And The Beanstalk fairy­tale is dis­ap­point­ing and even a lit­tle creepy. It is very dark and has a par­tic­u­larly high body count, not to men­tion some dis­turb­ing scenes of gi­ants plat­ing up peo­ple for din­ner. It also falls short on those com­i­cal ref­er­ences to mod­ern cul­ture we’ve come to ex­pect, yet not be­ing an­other sweet sto­ry­book is its strength. Young kid­dies might be scared but their older coun­ter­parts will prob­a­bly love it. Fea­tures voices by Ewan McGre­gor and Stan­ley Tucci. ★★✩ Ex­tras: Deleted scenes, gag reel. ★★
