I found this movie to be typical Del Toro. Characters have an edge and aren't sugar coated. There is some darkness to it. The animation was awesome. Good for kids and adults. Great story and message. I recommend this film.

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

I would say this is a Christmas movie but it takes place about two or three days before Easter. The movie is very well done and the kids loved it!

I took two 8 year old boys to this movie and they loved it. I thought it was very good as well. I wouldn't advise taking small children as it might tend to scare them a little. The 3D effects were very well done.

I really really liked this movie. It was more exciting than I thought it was going to be, and more bad***, too. The whimsical holiday stuff was nicely balanced with humor and action, to the point where nothing felt super forced. For a movie ABOUT the imagination and believing in magic, it never felt too hamfisted or underdeveloped.
