I've just watched "RISE OF THE GUARDIANS" in 3D a few days ago.
Directed By Peter Ramsey
Voiced By Chris Pine, Alec Baldwin, Hugh Jackman, Isla Fisher, Jude Law
When the guardians are threatened by a dark evil force lead by Pitch, The Boogeyman. North aka Santa Claus, Bunnymund aka Easter Bunny, Sandy aka Sandman and Tooth aka Tooth Fairy have to band up together to fight him. They are then joined by Jack Frost, who is chosen to be a guardian by The Man In The Moon to assist them to stop Pitch's evil plans to bring back fear in all the children of the world.
Rise Of The Guardians tells a simple story of good vs evil, but with a different perspective, and not like Avengers fighting off aliens from another realm. This movie is more of a children animated film with tells about fear & believe/faith which is truly a really nice message.
The main character of Jack Frost is really captivating. I like how they made him a character who is lonely & longs to be believed in. Although, I was expecting more of his character, but it's alright. There are also many interesting characters like North, Sandy, Bunnymund also the elfs & Yetis.
Story-wise, a simple & interesting story, especially for children. Great for a family holiday movie.
The plot, could have been better. I was expecting more in contrast to other animated movies like previous DreamWorks animations.
Characters was really charming & funny. With good voice casts. Although, I never thought that The Easter Bunny's voice was Hugh Jackman. :P
Visually, it is indeed an eye candy. With fly-overs, colourful & beautiful scenes, snow & great graphics its truly worth the watch in 3D!
The music was well scored & gives the epic feel with a touch of magical holiday season.
P.S. - Don't go off straight when the credits begin as there is a small scene during the credits. (:
In a nutshell, if you plan for a fun & interesting family movie with a good message, watch Rise Of The Guardians.
