Jack Is Not Your Typical Fairy Tale Hero KIDS FIRST! Coming Attractions, www.kidsfirst.org

JackGiantSlayer

“Jack The Giant Slayer” isn’t your ordinary fairytale. In fact, it’s rated PG-13 for a reason; intense scenes, violence and brief inappropriate images. But if you love intense special effects, complicated twisting story lines and amazing animation, this might just be the best fairy tale you’ve seen on screen yet. KIDS FIRST! Film Critic Raven Devanney, age 15, calls it “the familiar story of Jack and the Beanstalk with an entertaining twist.” Here is Raven’s review of “Jack The Giant Slayer.”

“Parental Guidance” seems to have something to appeal to every age group. A great film that grandparents can really relate to, and perhaps see themselves in one of the grandparent roles depicted. 13-year-old KIDS FIRST! Film Critic, Brianna Hope Beaton, says “this is a good comedy that will keep you laughing” and Cheyenne Nguyen, our 9-year-old KIDS FIRST! Film Critic points out that this film “has something for every age group to relate to.”

Rated PG, just like the title, this film is now available at all your favorite DVD resellers on DVD and Blu-ray.
