Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole - 3D
28 February 2011
Conclusion: Zack Snyder's 'Legend of the Guardians' is a mildly amusing animated movie with plenty of action and even better, resplendent photography. The dark fantasy fable based on the children's books by Kathryn Lasky works as a decently entertaining family picture in spite of its rather bland storyline. The 3D Blu-ray displays a jaw-dropping video presentation and exceptional audio while featuring the same collection of bonus features found on the 2D release.
Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole Review

Excerpt: After seeing hulking brutes of men kick each other off cliffs and rogue superheroes take on all-mighty super powers, director Zack Snyder tackles… owls. Animated owls. This is the first time the director hasn’t been tapped to direct something R-rated, Legend of the Guardians saddled with a meager PG for some rough owl-on-owl violence. That means kids can get a slight taste of Snyder’s style, albeit the intention of 3D gets in the way.

Conclusion: The Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole is a beautiful film, but that beauty only carries it so far. This standout effects film is easy to like; it's got a good character roster, exciting action scenes, and a strong sense of adventure, but the problem is that the film seems wholly superfluous.
Conclusion: If you enjoyed Zack Snyder's 'Legend of the Guardians' in the theater (as I did, on home video), then picking up this Blu-ray is kind of a no-brainer. With exemplary, reference-quality audio and video and a whole host of special features that will keep everybody happy, especially the little owlets.

Conclusion: Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole may not be as engrossing an epic as Snyder envisioned, but it is a stunning piece of inspired animation as beautiful as it is flawed. Thankfully, Warner's Blu-ray release soars. While its supplemental package is aimed squarely at the kiddies, its video transfer is nothing short of breathtaking and its DTS-HD Master Audio track is simply extraordinary. At the very least, Legend of the Guardians is worth renting.
