Fantasy films have been the trend of late & reasonably so. They provide exquisite background locations, brave heroes, beautiful damsels in distress and familiar stories. The only trouble is, they never go beyond the call of duty.
Meaning they will give you the adventure, but probably not anything else. So don't expect this film come release date, to have fully fledged characters or even believable reasons why the giants and humans fight each other.
In turn, it will be once again, just like "Snow White & the Huntsman , "Alice in Wonderland" & all the other films that come out of this wretched sub-genre. A giant mess.
