[Movie Review] Rise of the Guardians

Rise of the Guardians
Voices of: Chris Pine, Hugh Jackman, Alec Baldwin, Isla Fisher and Jude Law
Directed by: Peter Ramsey
Distributed by: DreamWorks Animation Philippines

Rise of the Guardians is not an Avengers ensemble nor Avenger Initiative, it has its own way presenting it with dazzling animation, gorgeous characters and a perfect plot albeit predictable, suited with great characterization, and the anination had a big impact, its plain beautiful.

Set about 200 years after the book series, the film tells a story about the Guardians (North or Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy, Bunnymund or the Easter Bunny, and the Sandman), who enlist Jack Frost to stop Pitch from engulfing the world in darkness. It features the voices of Chris Pine (Jack Frost), Alec Baldwin (Santa Claus), Hugh Jackman (The Easter Bunny), Isla Fisher (The Tooth Fairy) and Jude Law (Pitch).

Dreamworks Animation had been and always be a threat to Pixar producing films like How to Train Your Dragon, Shrek Franchise, Megamind and 2011's Kung fu Panda 2 and Puss in Boots and this year Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted which is my favorite animated this year and 2013 there are more stored for fans.

Rise of the Guardians is a great animated feature, but not as good as Madagacar, Frankenweenie, Paranorman or even Wreck-It Ralph but i assure it is better than The Lorax and The Pirates! Band of misfits, The Script is rich with human theses, religion's imagery and re- invention of nearly all your childhood fantasy figures, Rise of the Guardians is an effervescent dose of fantasia.

Rise of the Guardians is not the film that i expected to turn out to, it was very good and had a nice climax and add that 3D conversion and your into a great journey, this is somehow could wind up having a oscar nomination or could win but that's impossible, a very impressive year for animated films.

Movies & Everything Nice
Rating: 3.5/5
