Last Tuesday I went to see Rise of the Guardians with one of my friends.
I really wanted to see this movie because I fell in love with Jack Frost.
And I haven't watched a good animated movie this year.
Close to Christmas the best children movies are released.
Rise of the Guardians is super cute and funny.
You basically know all the main charakters - Santa Claus, the Toothfairy, the Easter Bunny, the Sandman, Jack Frost - but the movie
or the book the movie is based on gave them a surprising, fresh new personality and character layout.
The main plot is that Pitch - the Boogeyman - returns. He wants to defeat the Guardians and bring fear and nightmares back into the world. I think he is quite scary. Children movies sometimes freak me more out than adult movies do. And Pitch and his freaking black horses are my personal nightmares. But what is scarier than fear itself?
Yeah, I kind of quote Harry Potter here.
A second plot would be Jacks search for his pre-spirit life. He wants to know why he exists and what his purpose in life is. And somehow that's the question we all ask ourselves everyday, isn't it?
One of the other highlights of this movie are the voice actors, therefore i recommend to watch this movie in English. We have Chris Pine as Jack Frost, Hugh Jackman as the Easter Bunny and Jude Law as Pitch. Voiceporn ♡.
If you like children movies and want to laugh a lot: watch this nicely animated movie. You will leave the cinema with a warm feeling in your tummy, ready for christmas. Even then the movie takes place close to Easter it feels like a Christmas movie. Maybe because of all this snow and Santa Claus.
I've watched the 2D version so I can't tell you anything about the 3D effects. Sorry.
