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 realise 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 animation effects are excellent in this film--especially the images of frost and ice spreading across ponds and windowpanes. The characters are interestingly quirky, the action is constant and well paced, and the considerable voice talent includes Alec Baldwin, Chris Pine, Jude Law, Isla Fisher, and Hugh Jackman. A familiarity with the books aids deeper understanding of characters like North and Sandman, but viewers unfamiliar with the books will have no problem enjoying this film. (Ages 7 and older) --Tami Horiuchi

5.0 out of 5 stars I wish I could give this 6 stars 2 Dec 2012
By Sharon
I don't usually write reviews but felt compelled to do so after reading the previous reviewers review (Graham). In his review he stated he was enraged by this film and that it sent out the wrong message to children. I have no idea what it is he watched, or whether he is just unhinged but I must ask how you can get enraged by a movie that teaches our children to hope, and dream and to not be scared of the bogie man?
I for one loved this film. It's is beautifully animated and very funny. I can't wait for it to come out on DVD, as I think this is one Christmas film that will get played time and time again.

5.0 out of 5 stars First Rate Family Viewing 10 Dec 2012
By The Neon Weasel TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Looking for something to take the kids to see over the holidays,look no further,this is the perfect film for the whole family.Its enchanting and captivating in equal measures,and is fun to watch from start to finish.A lot of films try and fail to find that balance,that ensures that both kids and adults alike with find something to enjoy,but this one gets its just about spot on.Kids are going to love the central character of Jack Frost,and be swept away on his magical adventure,while the dazzling animation,wonderful set pieces and clever humour will keep the adults happy.Young or old,there is something here for everybody,it is heartwarming enjoyment for the whole family.Plus,whats not to love about a film that gives you an Aussie Easter Bunny,with a neat line in put downs.

3.0 out of 5 stars alright in an OK sort of way... 20 May 2014
By Mr. Stephen Redman VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
we love family films in our house, and this was Ok, but missed the high levels of most other modern animations. I wouldn't really recommend it as high on your list, but if you like cute bunnies then I suppose you cannot miss it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Rise Of The Imagination 22 Nov 2012
"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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not Just For Kids! 6 Jan 2013
I am 18 years old and a general huge fan of animated films. I went to see Rise of the Guardians in the cinema with quite a few of my friends, all also 18. Each and every person who went enjoyed this film & personally it was one of my top films of 2012, right up there with Skyfall and The Hobbit! I think so far this film has been underrated as only a kid's film, but I genuinely think adults of all ages could enjoy and appreciate the storyline, the characters and the AMAZING animation.

In a word: magical.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the most amazing family films of all time. 4 April 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This is the kind of film Blu Ray 3D was made for. It looks absolutely stunning, the best animated film i've ever seen. The 3D doesn't seem to suffer from the kind of blurring that others do. Visuals aside the film is funny, heartwarming and a rare treat. I could watch this film every day. The voices are spot on and include a few of my favourite actors and the inclusion of 5 well known children's characters means it is not just a film for Christmas. A lovely movie, great family film and the kind of film your 3DHDTV is crying out for.

5.0 out of 5 stars for all the family. 1 April 2013
By angie w
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
if you want a film that will give you that Life is good feeling then look no further. Rise of the Guardians is an excellent film and Jude Law was very good as Pitch and Hugh Jackman was hilarious as the Easter Bunny. We have watched the film at least 10 times since we bought it just over a week ago, my young son loves it.
If you want a wonderful story that has a very happy ending and one that makes you feel good, then look no further.
