I have an 8 year old, 4 and 3 year old. My older child really liked it, as did I, and although my younger children liked it - there were some intense scenes that made them nervous and they ended up on my lap. It was very well done and magical. I enjoyed a different take on the holiday movies.

This was a great movie. My 7 year old loved it. The animation was clear. The characters and colors were beautiful on the screen. My child's favorite character was Jack Frost. But, the Sandman was great. Although Sandman doesn't speak, the facial expressions tell it all. Excellent movie!!!!

My girls, age 9 and 7, loved it . Perfect for their age-enough depth to the plot and action to keep them and me engaged. Also, even though it was very modern and "cool", it wasn't full of the snarky, obnoxious "over their head" jokes that are sometimes in kids movies these days. Full of awesome action sequences but not too violent. The message of the movie was positive and the visual impact was stunning-really well done. Maybe one of the best animated movies I've seen in awhile.

I just saw Rise of the Guardians with my friend Taylor (We saw the first showing of the day. We got there 45 minutes before the theater was even open so we could get good seats. lol. the dedication of fangirls. but it was worth it)! Fisrt off, OHMYGODJACKFROSTCDSNKVDASAHHHHEEEENDSKN!!!!!! Second, the movie was so good! I want to go watch it again right now. It was extremely visually stunning and the story line was cool/cute. Third, funny story; when we got there we asked for "two tickets to......... Rise of the Guardians! that's it!" (we were about to ask the guy for two tickets to Jack Frost. ahahahaha. cause that's who we've been obsessing over for the last month. we could not remember the name of the movie to save our lives. i had to look up at the movie listing behind the counter.) Finally, JACK FROST!!!!!! O. M. G!!!! He is stuck in my head! I love that boy! lol. (Fangirling over here). I BELIEVE! Anyways, I think this is a great movie for all ages and that you should go see it!!

WOW!! This movie was much, much better than I expected. The visuals and special effects were stunning, even in regular 2D. I took three pre-teen boys and they really had a blast, and I was actually thoroughly entertained from beginning to end. The storyline surrounding the main character was extraordinarily done, and the whole story had a really heartwarming conclusion. For anyone who has ever had questions about the meaning and the purpose of your life, this movie will definitely touch your heart. I HIGHLY recommend this film for any family with young children, or even young adults who are in need of a lighthearted holiday movie. I give "Rise of the Guardians" two thumbs WAY up!!
