WENT WITH MY WIFE AND TEN YEAR OLD. GREAT MOVIE. LOVED THE SPIN ON THE CHARACTERS AND HOW THEY WHERE PORTRAYED SO DIFFERENTLY FROM TRADIONAL HOLIDAY FILMS. VISUALLY SPECTACULAR AS WELL. PROBABLY ONE OF THE BEST MOVIES IVE EVER SCENE FROM A VISUAL PERSPECTIVE. SAW IT IN 3D. WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND SEEING IT THAT WAY. PLOT WAS BASIC BUT VERY GOOD AND AGAIN DIFFERENT FROM OTHER FILMS INVOLVING THESE SPECIFIC CHARACTERS. WILL GO SEE IT AGAIN.

The Rise of the Guardians is nothing special, in terms of deep, thoughtful drama, but is a suitable holiday entertainment, pitching childhood fantasy heroes Santa Claus, The Easter Bunny, The Tooth Fairy, and The Sandman, (joined by Jack Frost) against Pitch Black, the purveyor of everything dark, fearsome and scary in kids (in other words, the BOOGEYMAN). Good entertainment for kids upwards of about six to seven years old with their parents, as well as anyone with a vivid imagination. 3d effects were somewhat uneven, and were mostly of the in-your-face variety, so save your money and see the version without the bells and whistles....

This is now one of my favorite Christmas movies!! I loved the meanings behind the story. My children really enjoyed it and asked for it for Christmas.

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.

Enjoyed the afternoon with my grandchildren. I enjoyed the show and I know they had a great time! The show had a great story line for children and kept their interest throughout the whole movie.
