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.

I loved this movie, from the story line to the end. I was absolute genius! Not only should everyone see this movie but you should own it too!

This movie is great. It was entertaining, great screen writing and wonderful story line. Characters and voices and animation in 3D were awesome. This is a must see with the whole family.

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
