Transported to Barsoom, a Civil War vet discovers a barren planet seemingly inhabited by 12-foot tall barbarians. Finding himself prisoner of these creatures, he escapes, only to encounter Woola and a princess in desperate need of a savior.
As his kingdom is being threatened by the Turks, young prince Vlad Tepes must become a monster feared by his own people in order to obtain the power needed to protect his own family, and the families of his kingdom.
Having endured his legendary twelve labors, Hercules, the Greek demigod, has his life as a sword-for-hire tested when the King of Thrace and his daughter seek his aid in defeating a tyrannical warlord.
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 from ruffians. He returns home with only 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 herself 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
when the beanstalk first falls we see that it flattens the Kings red tent, however afterwards the king returns into the tent to get his daughters bracelet, then also the princess changes into her armor while in the tent. See more »
If I hadn't run away, none of this would have happened. A princess is such a useless thing.
If you hadn't run away, Roderick would have taken over the kingdom with no warning. Your running away just might have give Cloister a fighting chance. So no one's useless, least of all the princess. That's why we need to get you back, because one day you'll be the queen. From then on you'll have the power to make the world a better place. Isabelle... imagine all the good things you could do.

The Bad Hat Harry logo contains silhouettes of giants, who are first seen from a human point-of-view (their feet are seen stomping around) before they seen in their entirety. See more »
German version was cut for violence (Fallon getting hit by arrows in the face and burning) to secure a "Not under 12" rating. See more »
This film tells the story of a farm boy who battles giants from the sky valiantly, alongside brave soldiers and the princess of the kingdom.
I put off watching "Jack the Giant Slayer" because the giants are really ugly! During the film, I kept having sweaty palms because of the scenes involving heights. Those scenes were really scary. I liked the lead character Jack, because he is approachable boy next door. It is a refreshing tale to see him rising through the ranks and valiantly serve his country. The interweaving story telling scenes in the beginning annoyed me a little, because I thought it was a bit too forced. Overall, I like "Jack the Giant Slayer", because of the poignant ending.
