Best part of story, including ending: I like the story. Giants have been waiting for the bridge to come down on Earth to destroy peace. A mixture of fantasy and science fiction.

Best scene in story: At the last of the movie, when the leader giant intended to eat the princess alive and Jack threw a bean into his mouth. A great tree appeared and raised through the giants body tearing him apart.

Opinion about the main character: Jack doesn't have any royal blood in him. But the crown waits for him, a true leader who will save the kingdom from the giants. His character inspires to do great things.
