Summary: Essentially, I give this dvd to my daughter as a birthday present to subtly communicate a lesson most present day know-it-all young adults think they already know. This movie's like "The Little Prince". It conveys both a simple message and a profound deeper lesson.
Excerpt: I guess I should make it understood before I start this review that I am not a fan of Dreamworks Animation. Most of their films just seem like products to me, and there seems to be little creativity going into them. With that being said, it delights me to say that Rise of the Guardians is an excellent film that far surpassed my low expectations. The plot, for the most part, is relatively simple.
Excerpt: "This wonder is what I put in to the world! And what I protect in children. It is what makes me a Guardian. It is my center. What is yours?" Jack Frost (Chris Pine) rises from the cold water because of "Father Moon." Nicholas St. North (Alec Baldwin) summons Tooth Fairy/Tooth (Isla Fisher), the Easter Bunny/E. Aster Bunnymund (Hugh Jackman) and the Sandman/Sandy since Pitch the Bogeyman (Jude Law) is threatening children with his powers.
Excerpt: Rise of the Guardians (2012) When the evil spirit, Pitch (voiced by Jude Law), attacks Earth, the Immortal Guardians fight to protect the children. In this wonderfully animated film, the Guardians are made up of Santa Claus (voiced by Alec Baldwin), the Tooth Fairy (Isla Fisher), Sandman (who doesn't talk), and The Easter Bunny (Hugh Jackman). Jack Frost (Chris Pine) has been asked to join the group, and he may be key to defeating Pitch and his plan to conquer the world.
