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.

I would say this is a Christmas movie but it takes place about two or three days before Easter. The movie is very well done and the kids loved it!

Absolutely delightful! My six year old laughed through the entire movie. It manages to incorporate all childhood magical characters into a worthy story. We will buy it on DVD so we can see it again and again.

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

I took two 8 year old boys to this movie and they loved it. I thought it was very good as well. I wouldn't advise taking small children as it might tend to scare them a little. The 3D effects were very well done.
