Review: Rise of the Guardians

Rise of the Guardians

The best way to describe Rise of the Guardians is The Avengers with holiday heroes. There's a lot to love here, but in the end, I was left slightly unsatisfied. The colourful animation and stunning visuals are most likely to amaze. It's well worth your money to see this in 3D, some of the best I've ever seen. Also good voice acting from Chris Pine, Alec Baldwin, Hugh Jackman, Isla Fisher and Jude Law. But what's missing is the humour. And whenever there is a joke, pretty much all of them fall flat. If you're thinking about going to the movies to see a good family film, I recommend Wreck-It Ralph. I'm not saying this is a bad movie. I was entertained for the most of It. Rise of the Guardians delivers the dazzle, but if the script and storytelling were polished up, this could have been something special.
