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.

"Rise of the Guardians," is full of action and splendid animation but it has its setbacks in areas that could have made this movie a real showstopper. The concept of each character is unique and that is a reason to see this movie. Santa as a swordsman with a Russian accent, the Easter Bunny as a gruff and strong Austrailian rabbit-man, a mute Sandman and a teenage Jack Frost is certainly something not seen everyday. The characters were very cool. Director Peter A. Ramsey did a good job with his adaptation William Joyce's storybook, the Guardians of Childhood and the animation of the film is vibrant and very aesthetic but one can't help but think this movie has fallen short somewhere. Perhaps the screenplay from David Lindsey-Abaire ("Robots") was too conservative. Not enough liberties were taken in trying to get this movie to really become something wonderful. "Rise of the Guardians" is a likable enough motion picture to completely enchant the imaginations of children. Not the parents.

The last couple of movies I've watched were all based on superheroes or video games, so I'd almost forgotten that some kids' movies actually have a soul. This was a charming and visually stunning take on the Velveteen Rabbit-style myth about the power of children's beliefs.

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!
