I took my 10 and 14 year old to see it and they loved it! Jack Frost and the Sand Man were amazing and Fear (Pitch) was very believeable! My boys loved the whole movie and were immediately asking me if they could watch it again!

I was interested in this movie because of the graphics/animation/whatever you call it nowadays and I had Fandango tickets that were about to expire....This movie has a great cast of characters (both real and imaginary) and the story line is simple enough for the little ones to understand...There are a couple of scenes that really arent for the little ones and they may get scared but the characters and the animation keep this movie moving along....

What is your center is the message this movie captures. Not just a simple Christmas story the good and dark sides of the film comes together to keep you wanting more. Immediately after seeing it I wanted to go again. Good for kids and adults.

Great family movie. Excellent 3-D animation, fun characters, and a good, happy message for everyone this holiday season. Funny, not too scary for smaller kids. Though the basic story is predictable, it is a nice new twist. David Lindsay-Abaire is a terrific screenwriter (and playwright!).

The Rise of the Guardians is nothing special, in terms of deep, thoughtful drama, but is a suitable holiday entertainment, pitching childhood fantasy heroes Santa Claus, The Easter Bunny, The Tooth Fairy, and The Sandman, (joined by Jack Frost) against Pitch Black, the purveyor of everything dark, fearsome and scary in kids (in other words, the BOOGEYMAN). Good entertainment for kids upwards of about six to seven years old with their parents, as well as anyone with a vivid imagination. 3d effects were somewhat uneven, and were mostly of the in-your-face variety, so save your money and see the version without the bells and whistles....
