    So boring. So bad story. There is a lot of better blockbusters out there, keep digging and skip this one. My score is 3 and not 0 only because the visuals were nice at least.

    The plot of this movie is very poor and slow. Acting seems fake, and the story is really puzzling. This movie never looked good from the beginning, but there were some humorous parts. I didn't like this at all, but I love action and humor movies. This just was plain awful.

    This was a just a sad waste of time. First off, the acting was terrible, especially from Ewan McGregor. Second, the fact that the story is based off of an old children's story, it just comes to show that hollywood is coming up with stupid rip-offs and unnesacary sequels. Third, the story is typical, i mean come on, trying to save the princess, isn't that overated. Anyway, Overall this wasThis was a just a sad waste of time.

    Awful, just awful. The acting is atrocious, the main male character too ugly to convince that he could charm a princess, the CGI is simply poor. The story is boring and incoherent. Why are these movies made They will never make the studio money...

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. By far the worst movie I have ever seen since super babies, the film was really cheesy with a disappointing ending, poor costumes and actors, the trailer showed all the best bits and the only good thing about it was the C.G.I. in the Trailer.

    Singer honors a child's desire not only for adventure but for noble deeds, for loyalty and friendship. [18 March 2013, p.87]

    Far from the giant mess you’d expect from the delayed release, late title change and a production history as muddled as the source material, Singer’s tall tale is snatched from disaster by an all-hell-breaks-loose third act.

    Not one for cynics or bedwetters, if you’re after a ripping, roaring, thigh-slapping giant of a fairytale, Bryan Singer’s blockbuster panto will be right up your beanstalk.
