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.

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.

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.

My child and I saw in 3D, so worth it! You could almost grab the snow flakes! If you get a little motion sickness, be prepared!

"This movie is awesome!" -Ayden, 6 yrs old

Hubby and I had the great privilege of a sleepover with our 6-year-old grandson this weekend, and wanted to treat him to a movie. He chose Rise of the Guardians 3D, and I have to say it was one of my favorite movies this year. My husband & I loved some of the beyond-kids'-comprehension humor (e.g., "North" is a huge Russian Santa with "Naughty" tattooed on one forearm and "Nice" on the other). All of us were very impressed with the 3D scenes--Ayden kept saying "Woah!" "Wow!", laughing, and enjoying the sensation of snow flying around the thater. The plotline was also very good, although some of the scary parts might have been too much for the average 4-or 5-year-old. Our little guy loved it though, and his final analysis was "Awesome!". I have to agree.
