I found this movie to be typical Del Toro. Characters have an edge and aren't sugar coated. There is some darkness to it. The animation was awesome. Good for kids and adults. Great story and message. I recommend this film.

My son (17) and his friends loved it, especially the Russian Santa with the tattoos but my husband and I thought it was just OK. Maybe I'm over thinking but some explanation of why the "Guardians" look completely different from how most people see them in their mind's eye would help, Also why was the Boogie Man not called the Boogie Man but called Pitch Black? Needed more story development.
That said, teenagers love it and the fact that it was short was a plus

One of the all time best. Adorable factor goes to the elves. Coolness factor goes to the entire movie. Baby hop hop girl is to live for. Sandman is super cuddly. Mini tooth fairy (baby tooth) is just delectable. A truly special movie.

Maybe it is the holiday season that makes this movie so enjoyable. Whatever the reason, Rise of the Guardians is a good way to spend 1 1/2 hours. The concept of a tattooed, Russian, sword-wielding Santa, who has Yetis creating toys, is hilarious. Loved the tough Easter Bunny storyline, also. However, these very images that amused and entertained me MIGHT not be entirely appropriate for children younger than 9 years.

Took my Father (82), sister and her twins (6), my wife and myself to see this. We had a great time. The story moves along well and the animation was fantastic! I would definitely go.
