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 plot of this movie moved fairly slowly and thought the mood of it was too dark for kids. I thought the villian of the movie was a particularly dark figure and that it was a little too scary in some scenes for small kids. That said, i did think the animation was fantastic and the viewer cannot help but be captivated by the flight scenes.

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!
