The son of a virtual world designer goes looking for his father and ends up inside the digital world that his father designed. He meets his father's corrupted creation and a unique ally who was born inside the digital world.
Sent to the market by his uncle to sell their horse and buy thatch for their roof, Jack meets the beautiful Princess Isabelle whom he rescues her from ruffians. He returns home only with a handful of beans given to him by a monk who claimed they were sacred but that does little to impress his uncle who tosses them away. In the night the Princess arrives having run off to keep from marrying Roderick who is clearly only interested in becoming king. Soon the beans take root with a giant stalk carrying away the princess and Jack's house. He soon sets off on an adventure with the king's guards to rescue the princess only to find that a mythical land filled with giants really exists. Written by
A golden harp can be seen twice throughout the movie--once in a flashback when a giant is stealing it, and again when Jack is in the room with all the treasure. In the Jack and the Beanstalk fairy tale, a harp that plays by itself is one of the items Jack steals from the giant. See more »
If the giant home is really miles in the air shouldn't it be really hard to breath up there. See more »
Did you really think you were the hero of this story? Don't you know we all think that?
[he tries to stab Elmont's hand, but he takes the blade and stabs his own hand, which goes through Roderick's foot]
I may not be the hero of this story, but at least I get to see the end of it!

As I left the theater after watching this movie I tried to put my finger on the reason why I felt so underwhelmed by what I had just watched. Perhaps it was the overly simplistic video game plot (save the princess), the lack of a well defined villain, or the lackluster development of any of the characters. In the end I couldn't precisely point to any single issue that derailed my ability to really enjoy this viewing. What this movie really lacked was the ability to engage the audience on any meaningful level whether it be emotional, mental or otherwise. In short, it's soulless. I don't know exactly what gives a movie its soul but I know when it's missing and this movie, unfortunately, was quite lacking.
