Rise of the Guardians is a great movie. I really enjoyed watching it. I find it on par with How to Train your Dragon (a fantastic family movie, one of my favourites). I loved the graphics as well. Jack's character was interesting and I liked the way the villain was portrayed. I plan on purchasing this for my son to watch when he gets a little older.
Based on William Joyce's the Guardians of Childhood book series, Rise of the Guardians is a gorgeously animated film about Boogeyman Pitch Black's attempts to spread darkness and fear throughout the world and the guardians' attempts to foil him. Charged with the duty of watching over the children of the world, guardians Sandman, North, Tooth, and E. Aster Bunnymund are loved by children everywhere.
When the Man in the Moon appoints Jack Frost to be the newest guardian, the other guardians doubt that Jack can be of much help against Pitch, especially considering that the children don't even believe in Jack Frost's existence. But when Pitch prevents Tooth from collecting the children's teeth, keeps E. Aster Bunnymund from hiding eggs on Easter, and turns the children's happy dreams into nightmares, the guardians realize that they're going to need all the help they can get. The children stop believing in the guardians one by one, and the question that remains is what can one fun-loving, somewhat immature boy with the power to freeze everything he touches possibly do to counteract the fear and darkness enveloping the world?
The movie was awesome! It was what we expected it to be and more. I wasn't disappointed at all. It has something for everyone. Lots of humor that the kids enjoyed and some older humor that made my hubby and myself chuckle at too. This was a great movie to curl up to and is perfect for the entire family no matter how old you are. I definitely recommend having this be the movie you and your family watches on your next Family Movie Night! This hands down has to be one of my new favorite family movies that I can see myself watching over and over again.
