Jack the Giant Slayer
One lovely day, Jack (Nicholas Hoult) goes to market, but while there he ends up having to defend the honor of his old friend Isabelle (Eleanor Tomlinson) who although a true princess is disguised this day as a commoner. Outside the castle, the disguised Isabelle is harassed by some local ruffians. And that’s just the start of this eventful day that sees Jack come into possession of those magic beans after a monk steals them from the king’s advisor, Roderick (Stanley Tucci), who incidentally is about to be married to Jacks friend Isabelle, much to her dismay.
As Jack is being chased, he hastily gives the beans as collateral for the horse he has come to sell, but instead he has to use to escape. A while later, Isabelle runs away from home, taking shelter at Jack’s house during a rainstorm, which in turn gets the beans wet, creating the giant beanstalk, and where she is suddenly thrust into the mysterious land in the sky. All this forces Jack to team up with the King’s men, led by Elmont (Ewan McGregor) and Jack realizes that he must climb up the giant beanstalk in order to rescue Isabelle.
Everything is kept moving forward by director Bryan Singer ("X-Men") using his previously honed blockbuster sensibilities keeping everything lean and efficient. You already have figured out that our heroes will get into trouble, but you also know they will escape, and when the false ending arrives, and everything appears to be wrapped up, you know there is still something big just around corner.
