Synopsis: Rise of the Guardians is an epic adventure that tells the story of a group of heroes – each with extraordinary abilities. When an evil spirit known as Pitch lays down the gauntlet to take over the world, the immortal Guardians must join forces for the first time to protect the hopes, beliefs and imagination of children all over the world.
Our Thoughts: When my boys first saw the preview for Rise of the Guardians they were so excited... I mean what kid wouldn't love a movie that has all of their favorite holiday heroes joining together to fight the big, bad, boogeyman?! Well you can imagine their excitement when we were sent a copy of Rise of the Guardians to review, along with a super fun viewing kit filled with Easter goodies, Rise of the Guardian tattoo, stickers, and more.
We sat down and watched Rise of the Guardians last weekend and we all really enjoyed it. It was cute, funny, sad, and even a little scary... Basically it was the perfect family movie. Now there were a few parts involving Pitch that might have been a little too scary for the younger crowd, but my boys didn't seem to care too much.
It was definitely interesting to see the way the holiday heroes were portrayed in something other than your typical holiday movie. Santa was much "cooler" than your average Santa and the rest of the Guardians were different than what you would expect as well.
Overall, it's definitely a movie worth watching... And with Easter right around the corner, now would be the perfect time!
