Storyline

Jake is a young boy from the village of Shilow located east Mediterranean Sea. His life with his family is ideal. They dance, bake bread, take care of their animals and they are far from any danger. Until one day the Giants who have lost their seacoast castles come knocking and kidnap nearly the entire village. Jake manages to evade capture and with his twin sister Joanie and dog Waldo he sets out to rescue his family. Along the way he encounters a magical Bird, a wise owl and a group of Beavers who aid him and advise him on how to find Giant Mountain and rescue those he loves. There are plenty of uplifting songs and there is plenty of action. Written by Brian Stewart

Enchanted pleasure through this movie
18 September 2015 | by maryleekeatingSee all my reviews

The real extent of a family film is to watch a child's reaction. My five years old kid sat with enchanted pleasure through this movie and was able to lucid the plot back to me with amazing detail. That's not a parent's inconsequential, it's a credit to a brilliant movie like Jake and the giants. In this movie Jake play the main role as a 12 years old kid who lived with his family. He has one sister too. One day they were attacked by some monsters and that time Jake was so afraid to face that. Once he realized that those giants took his family then he could not resist himself not from going to rescue them. It's a very noble cause to take care about your parents when the needed most. It's teaches all kids that lesson.

Well, It not the best movie that I can say. But it's not bad at all. You will definitely enjoy the movie.
