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....

I was interested in this movie because of the graphics/animation/whatever you call it nowadays and I had Fandango tickets that were about to expire....This movie has a great cast of characters (both real and imaginary) and the story line is simple enough for the little ones to understand...There are a couple of scenes that really arent for the little ones and they may get scared but the characters and the animation keep this movie moving along....

Great family movie. Excellent 3-D animation, fun characters, and a good, happy message for everyone this holiday season. Funny, not too scary for smaller kids. Though the basic story is predictable, it is a nice new twist. David Lindsay-Abaire is a terrific screenwriter (and playwright!).

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.
