This 2012-released 3D animated fantasy adventure flick “Rise of the Guardians” is an entertainer for kids with a message to believe in for all good things.
Based on the book series The Guardians of Childhood (by children’s book author William Joyce), this is truly an epic adventure with great animation and cinematic excellence.
The movie is a short of The Avengers with childhood icons such as Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy, the Easter Bunny and the Sandman.
While all came together to defeat Pitch Black, who turns children’s dreams to nightmares and who is on a mission to take away hopes, faiths and imagination of every child in the world, the movie tells the story of Jack Frost – a carefree boy, who enjoys playing mischief, and whom kids don’t believe in.
When the Man in Moon tells all these existing Guardians that a new star Jack Frost has been chosen to join them to save the world from Pitch Black (the Boogeyman), they must convince Frost to take up the cause.
As in our childhood we believe in and have faith on a lot of things before some evil spirit strikes to tell the other side of our world, the movie yet again raises hope among children for all their little known fairytale characters to fight against evil spirit, cynicism and non-believing things.
So, if you like superhero movies then “Rise of the Guardians” comes as a surprise with numerous entertaining and laugh elements for kids as well as adults.
Cast/Voice: Alec Baldwin (Santa Claus), Chris Pine (Jack Frost), Hugh Jackman (Easter Bunny), Isla Fisher (Tooth Fairy) and Jude Law (Pitch or Boogeyman)
