      Parents need to know that Rise of the Guardians is sort of like The Avengers with childhood icons: Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy, the Easter Bunny, and the Sandman. There's lots of action and some mild violence revolving around the menacing bad guy Pitch Black, who turns children's dreams into nightmares with his cavalry of scary stallions (some scenes may feel more intense in the movie's 3-D version). (Spoiler alert!) One Guardian is destroyed but comes back to life at the end of the movie. There's some insulting language like "coward" and "selfish" and "go suck an egg," and in a flashback, a main character drowns but transforms rather than dying. Whether they personally believe in these characters or not (and the nontraditional way they're portrayed here could get some of them wondering...), kids will root for the Guardians as they fight the forces of chaos and despair.

      I was not impressed with the trailers for The Guardians, so I thought the movie was nothing special. It's a entertaining one that the whole family can enjoy. It had everything I ask for in a family film; an interesting story, good character development, emotion, action, a mystery, some scary parts, several funny parts, and a happy ending. My kids loved it and so did I. It was not the pinnacle for kids films, but it was really good and definitely worth watching. The animation was very good, the characters all had very distinct and charming personalities. What a great movie. Movies these days are either terrible, bad, good or really good. Most these days are nothing special. Well this one is an exception to the rule, it is GREAT AND SPECIAL. What a wonderful and spectacular film. If ever there was a film that was magical, it would be this one.

      As always, DreamWorks continues to produce great entertainment for the whole family. Rise of the Guardians is funny, brilliant and looks even more stunning in 3D! 3D movies are a big hit in our home and it's a shame that those of us who supported this tech are getting less and less material available to us. If you have and like 3D…continue to support it as long as you can…I've heard its huge overseas, so buying region free imports is still better than nothing. God Bless!

      Rise of the Guardians begins with you being introduced to Jack Frost. who wonders how he came to be who he is. Then, Jack is transported to the North Pole where he meets Santa, The Easter Bunny, The Tooth Fairy and The Sandman. It is here Jack learns why he is who he is and what good he can do for people. We also meet the Boogeyman who wants to have his revenge on all the others and be the one that all the kids believe in. Without belief, would they all still exist? Jacl along with the others battle the boogeyman in a classic good vs evil kind of story. Rise of the Guardians is a great film that has lots of action, laughs and makes you want to see how it all ends. Fun for kids of all ages

      My New Favorite Christmas Movie

      Love the story, love the design. Totally puts a twist on all the fable and mythical characters of childhood. Its like a G rate Grimm Brothers cartoon...gritty, dark, and funny too. My family loves it! 3D is cool, but really forget I am watching it after awhile. May just not have enough effects. Or our brains see in 3D 360 all day, so it just gets use to it. My daughters like it, but still prefer 2D. Really the best 3D movies I have seen thus far are documentaries. A mix of live action and cgi models really are cool. Sorry, sidelined the original topic there. Bottomline movie is great, and because of this review I am getting extra points as a Rewards Member!! Can't be that.

      This is a family favorite movie. Found it in store on Christmas special that included Blu-ray, 3D, and the digital version as well as the standard version. Watched it in 3D, and while I am not a huge 3D fan in theaters, it was actually pretty fun to watch this with the family on the screen at home. If you haven't seen this movie, and like kid friendly family films, you should try this one. I suppose it could be a bit scarey for younger kids, but I think most can handle it well. Two thumbs up!

      I purchase this for my 9 year old and he had already watched it and picked it for himself to rewatch so it was great to buy something for him that was already kid approved. Took all the guess work out of it and came with a free movie ticket offer on front so I took him to the movies to see HOME so win win bonus. I did not receive the ultraviolet code however did not know it came with one or received inside the movie case. Still great value regardless nephew loved it and great price.

      I really liked this movie. My son is 7 so we have had all the talks about Easter bunny, tooth fairy, Santa, and the boogie man. This was a nice movie to bring them all together and talk about the one not always mentioned Jack Frost (especially in Texas). My son loved it and so did I. Beautiful colors and graphics. For parents just be prepared to have a conversation with your child because Jack Frost did a great thing to become who he is, but without spoiling the movie it may create a family discussion.
