The fable of "Jack and the Beanstalk" gets a big revision from director Bryan Singer in this hugely visual fantasy, which succeeds on its sights even when the dramatics fall short.
Nicholas Hoult ("Warm Bodies") plays courageous Jack, who ascends into a world of literal giants - led by Bill Nighy, as one of the two-headed variety - to rescue a captured princess (Eleanor Tomlinson). Stanley Tucci and Ewan McGregor also star as the hero's principal allies. DVD extras: deleted scenes; outtakes. *** (PG-13: P, V) (Also on Blu-ray and On Demand)
