I liked the 3D part of It. It took too long to finally see a giant.

Actually a bit clever in its presentation. Enjoyable enough for mindless entertainment. I found the acting nothing special but thought it was worth the price of admission. I would recommend it to my friends who like fantasy movies.

Chicago Sun-Times
A rousing, original and thoroughly entertaining adventure. Full Review

USA Today
Vivid visuals are the key to this handsome and moderately entertaining adventure. And the tone is more fairy-tale appropriate than video-game friendly, though the effects-laden swashbuckling sometimes obscures efforts at light whimsy. Full Review

It’s fast, rousing, and blessedly brief. Full Review

New York Daily News
A director as talented as Singer (“The Usual Suspects,”“X-Men”) should be working to raise popcorn movies to a higher level. Instead, this uninspired effort feels like a colossal letdown. Full Review

NPR
The film's main problem — apart from its predictability and the sometimes unconvincing and cartoonish CGI for the army of giants — is that it never entirely commits to what kind of fantasy movie it wants to be. Full Review
