"There are great movies, there are good movies, and then there are fun movies. Jack the Giant Slayer tumbles down the beanstalk, right into the third camp. There’s nothing wrong with this film, it’s performances are solid, it’s engaging and funny (at least for me), and it’s got some clever jokes. Yet at the same time, it’s formulaic and predictable. But I’ve learned lately that it’s not fair to begrudge a film that just wants to have fun. And Jack definitely brings fun in spades."
