Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Like most children's movies, Rise of the Guardians mimics the patterns of adult entertainment. Where is the magic in that?
Fresh: In one of the best, brightest, most beautifully realised and visually sumptuous tentpole animation films of the year...an absolute joy to behold, as lovingly made a piece of corporate entertainment as you're likely to find at the multiplex.
Fresh: From the wind rustling through Jack Frost's white hair to the panoramic vistas as they fly through the sky, it all looks amazing.
Fresh: Rise of the Guardians is both reasonably quirky and mildly serious. It wants children to believe there's more to animation than fast food tie-ins.
Definition of Underrated
This movie will go down in history, along the likes of "The Iron Giant" and "Treasure Planet", as not being appreciated upon it's original release. This is a simply gorgeous movie on all levels, and I for one am sad it wasn't even nominated in the Oscars.
Deserves to be more popular, a great movie
In relation to “How to Train Your Dragon”
“Rise of the Guardians” made me cry. One because of Jack's past, two because Sandy dies, and lastly, because of William Joyce's daughter Mary Katherine Joyce.
But I also thought that it seemed a lot like “How to Train Your Dragon”. Just look at the facts. Hiccup was on his own because he was picked on. Jack was on his own because the children of the world didn't believe in him. Jack suffered the loss of his FAMILY. And Hiccup suffered the loss of his MOTHER.
There are a lot of other reasons why they're similar. But I'm not going to describe all of them.
This movie is absolutely fascinating. I really hope Billy Joyce decides to make a sequel.
