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.

"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.

Immortal Guardians (Tooth Fairy, Sandman, Easter Bunny, Santa Claus and the Elves, & Jack Frost) will thwart an evil boogeyman named Pitch Black. It was GREAT!!! The children themselves fought to keep the Evil Boogeyman at bay!!!

This move was a surprise as I really didn't know what to expect. My 26 year old daughter and I have a tradition of going to matinee every Black Friday since she was %. We always try to see a holiday movie if possible.
We both enjoyed this 3d adventure and how Jack Frost became a "Guardian".
I did feel sorry for the other is theater who had brought young children, ages -10 as I thought it was little old and dark for them.
