CGI Animation has come such a long way in only a few years, and this is the kind of movie that could only be done with it. It is aimed squarely at the under 12 set, which leaves the dialogue somewhat lacking for adults, but the storytelling is wonderful.
The character development is good, especially for the central character, Jack Frost, and for Bunny, definitely a counter-intuitive contrast. As my son, a design major, commented, the graphic design of the sets and backgrounds is remarkably good, feeling fully integrated into the story and very satisfying.
Definitely worth seeing, in spite of the slightly sticky sentimentality in it. The voice acting is fabulous, as is the integration between sound and images, and it is very entertaining and fun.

I was worried that my squeamish 6-year-old would be scared by this movie, as the previews seemed rather dark. Basing my judgment on previous reviews, however, three generations went and everyone absolutely loved it. The story is a bit dark, but the message is great and uplifting. Highly recommended.

My grandson and husband loved this movie. They definitely recommend it to everyone. My granddaughter and I went to see the Twilight movie, but my grandson said we have to go see this one too and he'll come again. That's saying a lot for a 6 year old boy!

This was an enjoyable movie that had a decent number of emotional moments to it, be it happy or sad or even a little sappy. You feel for the heroes as well as the villain, and it is a rather unexpected ride throughout.
Hugh Jackman as the Easter Bunny was brilliant.

I took my 7-year old daughter to see the movie, there were a lot of great elements appealing to boys or girls, the story line was pretty entertaining as well and moved right along. We found ourselves laughing at the little elves/ gnomes, they added a very humorous backdrop. There were touching moments as well, the story encouraged to look at the magic and inner child wonder inside all of us, and see what is truly important. Lastly, the animation was very well done, visually stimulating on the big screen. We really enjoyed this movie!
