Jack the Giant Slayer
"Jack the Giant Slayer" is the fantasy film about the dramatization of the old Cornish fairytale. The story begins when a young farm boy named Jack discovers some mysterious seeds while working on the land. Little did he know that when he planted them, an age old enemy was about to return to reek havoc on the kingdom when a beanstalk grows overnight high into the clouds. The Princess Isabelle is abducted and taken into the legendary realm of the giants that live above the clouds. Feeling that he was responsible for the current turn of events, Jack makes a proposal to King Brahmwell to rescue his daughter from the giants. Although the king is not thrilled with the idea of a young farmer saving his daughter, he agrees reluctantly. Little did anyone at Brahmwell's court know that the king's adviser, Lord Roderick is planning to usurp power away from Brahmwell. The kingdom is preparing for war against the giants when they come down on the magic beanstalks. Elmont, who is captain of the elite guard, is charged with leading the assault on the giants when they arrive to attack the kingdom. When the first battle takes place the elite guard are almost overwhelmed by the sheer force they have to battle. By chance, when the battle is underway Jack returns with Princess Isabelle. Now they must work together to help defeat the giants that threaten the kingdom. Taking stock from the old chronicles in the castle's hall of records, the pair discover many of the weaknesses of the giants in time to aide Elmont on the battlefield.
