I have always been a big fan of animation movies and I definitely loved this one. A very new take on saving Christmas. In fact, not just Christmas, but easter too. Excellent flight scenes... carried me away all the way to the moon and then back. Beautiful. Really beautiful.

That was the greatest movie I have ever seen! The art is so beautiful, the story is perfect, and the character designs show these characters we have all heard of in a new and amazing way. Tooth is so cute, North is just awesome, Bunny is pretty epic, Sandy was adorable and fun, and Jack was just the best thing I have ever seen. I even love the more minor characters like Sofie and little Tooth. Even Pitch Black was awesome! I over hearing about Jack's past and just everything was so amazing! I went to go see this movie when it first came out in Jack Frost costume, so obviously I was expecting a lot from it, but this was better than anything I could have imagined. It is the greatest movie ever. Also when I got out of the theater in my costume some of the smaller kids actually thought I was Jack Frost. This tells me that this movie didn't just touch the hearts of older people who could understand the meaning of the movie more than the children, but maybe the children even more.

Rise of The Guardians was a great movie! It had tons of humor, action, heart and adventure! I also loved the elves! They acted a lot like the minions in Despicable Me. Overall, this movie will get you to believe in the holiday spirit!

I wrapped up the 2012/13 holiday season by seeing Rise of the Guardians on the twelfth day of Christmas. I was not disappointed.
Rise of the Guardians is dark for a holiday tale. Most of the story takes place either at night, or underground. The antagonist, Pitch (wonderfully played by Jude Law), is out to destroy the faith of children in Santa, the Easter Bunny (not a kangaroo, as he assures us - despite the accent), the Tooth Fairy, and the Sandman. Into this conflict comes our chosen hero, Jack Frost.
Jack Frost's back story is rather sad, and there are some scenes that could be very frightening to very small children (the Night Mares were especially creepy), but in the end, all that is good, with the help of believing children, prevails. The acting here is wonderful, with a nod to Alec Baldwin for his bruising Russian Santa, and all ends on a high note. Santa's elves provide some needed comic relief and the animation is enchanting. Three and a half out of five stars.
