Beautifully done

The animation and effects on this movie are gorgeous. The story itself isn't spectacular, but it's very entertaining. I think the biggest problem with the movie is the title... people seem to think it's that stupid owl movie.

This was beautiful to watch. The look of the film is crisp and vivid . The 3D effects definitely enhance the experience, rather than distract from it. The writing is smart and the pace is fast. My 8 and 10 year olds never moved or peeped during this one, and it really was over before even I knew it. And stick around after the first round of credits, fun stuff!

3D still just a gimmick, unfortunately

The story was okay, but as with every 3D film to date, the 3D really did not add to the story. And story is what makes a film good. My 14 year old daughter enjoyed the film. My 11 year old son thought it was just so-so. And I got a very expensive nap. There was little to care about in the characters and the story just didn't have a well-defined arc. This is definitely a missable movie.

Sometimes lovely, but misses the mark emotionally

I really wonder why writing, which requires only a pencil and a piece of paper, seems to the the component most often neglected in film making. Everyone tries real hard to make it fun. It gets maudlin.

My child and I saw in 3D, so worth it! You could almost grab the snow flakes! If you get a little motion sickness, be prepared!
