“Rise Of The Guardians” is an uplifting movie revolving around how child-like wonder ties into the various holiday themes of occasions such as Christmas and Easter. Obviously, many people are going to come away with different interpretations of the movie. For me, I saw a positive message of how beliefs play a powerful role in life and that every person has a spiritual purpose to fulfill in their life (regardless of their level of popularity and/or prestige). “Rise Of The Guardians” is a good film for those who enjoy cheerful animated movies with prevalent holiday themes.

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 husband and I went to see this movie with my parents and our 3 girls ages 10, 8 and 4.5 Thanksgiving night. All of us loved it! Great animation, story and message. Nice way to cap off the day.

I don't go to the movies much because 9 out of 10 times the movie is just bad and I regret wasting my time and money. This was the rare 1 that I Loved!! I was completely entertained from start to finish and can't wait to buy it when it's released on DVD!!! My teens also really liked it and that's saying alot, because my teens hate everything I like!. The story was great (good vs. evil) and the graphics were outstanding. I felt like I was part of the setting! And those elves are so cute--I want one!!! I loved the how the characters (Santa, Jack Frost, Easter Bunny, Sandman and Tooth Fairy) aren't your typical cutesy renditions and how they all came together to tell the story so well. I especially liked the Sandman--so sweet but so fierce! I believe both kids and adults will enjoy Rise of the Guardians for a long time to come. I think even people that don't like animation will like this one. I just enjoyed this movie so much and hope everyone else does too!!

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!
