I was definitely surprised at how much I enjoyed this movie. Very entertaining as long as you don't take it too seriously. I really did not expect to like it as much as I did, but that is why it is called a pleasant surprise. I wouldn't take anyone under the age of ten to see it because it does seem a bit graphic at times. If you are looking for fun at the movies you'll probably find Jack The Giant Slayer to be an entertaining fantasy thrill ride.
