Dreamworks delivers a fine holiday choice for kids of all ages. This tale is unique and thoroughly entertaining. The characters are easily identifiable to younger children and the hero formula pays off as always. If you're looking for a great family outing, or are just a kid at heart, you simply can't go wrong here. See it. You won't be disappointed.

Inspirational and entertaining. Each of the characters was unique and charming! A modern day fable that was both engaging and heartwarming. This is a 'must see' for all ages.

Great Movie for adults and kids. As a single person on Christmas Eve it was great to hear the children laughing at parts of the movie, they seemed totally engaged and offered quite a bit of applause at the end.
For myself, Dreamworks may actually have matured beyond putting endless Hollywood in jokes in the movie ( think Shrek ). The 3D/HD animation was outstanding and the characterization was good. That each of the spirits had strengths and weaknesses was pleasantly portrayed. The underlying theme of preserving the wonder and joys of childhood as expressed in the characters sentiments was very nicely drawn over the length of the movie. Jack Frost's coming of age, so to speak, as a guardian was one of the nicest character revelations that I've seen in awhile. Also the little visual sidebar scenes of the small elves being themselves was very funny.
Go and Enjoy and listen to the kids laughter, it's worth the price of admission.

If your looking for a fun adventure that you can take the kids to (no matter their age) then this is a movie for you. If your looking for characters who figure out their deepest life meanings and go through great struggles to become a better person; well then why are you even thinking that before going to a children's film?
This movie was well done, clever and very original in the case of stereotypes of mystical characters. Overall it was just a fun time. It is visually beautiful, but not necessarily ground braking. The acting was not Oscar amazing, but then again its a kids film.
It's fun, its enjoyable, just go, have a good time, and believe. Besides whats not cooler then seeing Santa duel wield sabers as he flies around in a massive sled smacking down nightmares!

I got goosebumps NUMEROUS times watching this movie. It is SO sweet, and all of the Guardian characters are fully realized and robust. Chris Pine is absolutely wonderful as Jack, and Alec Baldwin is hilarious as Santa. Honestly, I give this movie 5 of 5 stars, and highly recommend it!
