Something for everyone, these unorthodox reimaginings of childhood characters remind adults of the importance of innocence, wonder, and hope, while entertaining kids (even teens!) with beautifully presented animation and many hysterical and unexpected moments. There are a couple "darker" moments that may scare some 5 and under, but they're not out of place for a children's movie -- acknowledging childhood fears and coming to a conclusion that empowers them.

Great family movie! The story was magical... and the scenes and colors were amazing!
Makes you believe all over again. I had a smile on my face throughout the movie.
A must see!!!

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.

This film is what the holidays are all about! Children, fun, heart, and love!
It's funny, dramatic, and has many great acting points!
The voices are excellent as well as the animation.... It will bring you to near tears as well as to broad smiles...
Santa with his Dual-wielding sword fighting style, the sandman with ultra sand magic, the tooth fairy who will Kill you with cuteness and the easter bunny with his boomerangs will all draw you in and make you love them...
The main Character Jack Frost is very endearing and never comes very close to becoming evil... he brings hope and gives the audience something to relate to while inspiring hope!!!
Great film! Must see!

“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.
