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

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.

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.
