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!

The makers of this movie gave themselves a chance to reinvent those iconic childhood characters and did a great job at that. Every single character is interesting and extremely lovable. Take the kids for sure!!! Beautiful art and animation as well.

They kind of stuffed a bunch of plot into a movie but the material was probably more appropriate for a mini-series. Hence, the brisk through stories that combine in a not-so-good manner but it definitely worked for my family crew. I'd give it a 2.5/5 but my family is probably at/above 4 our of 5. My wife was even mad that I didn't really like it much. Oh, well. Your call!
