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.

Entertaining

Great Animation, great voice characterizations, story was average and predictable, fun characters and situations. Perfectly NOT scary but suspenseful and appropriate for younger kids as well as tweens. 3D was especially pretty.

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.

Great Movie

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.

Great movie! Whole family enjoyed it.... I thought the Good vs. Evil violence was downplayed in a brilliant way... My son 6 was not scared during the movie, 3D was not overdone, but did create a more vivid experience. What r u waiting 4.... GO!!!
