Lacking in a good story, the fun you get from seeing this flick is the fast pace action and the fun effects when light (Sandy) takes on darkness (Pitch). The movie’s fast pace is filled with some fun dialogues, but the story does lack in the area of suspense, so at any time there is always a telling of how it was going to end. The voice acting is not bad also, Alec Baldwin pulled off a nice Russian accent in his role as Santa.

Rise of the Guardians is a movie filled with so much excitement all arousing from a good screenplay and the action scenes are the best, the special effects used to depict both Pitch and Sandy is exceptional, and stands out all through the movie.

The movie is based on a short film named The Man in the Moon a CG animated short film done in 2005 by Aimesworth Amusements a computer animation company. The short film was based on a book series called The Guardians of Childhood by William Joyce (art designer for Toy Story (1995) and A Bug's Life (1998)). The short film was the foundation and basis of this film Rise of the Guardians. Dreamworks bought the right to the film from Aimesworth in 2008 and William Joyce was on board as an executive producer.

Rise of the Guardians is a 2012 3D computer animated fantasy adventure film, which was set 200 years after the books stories. The movie’s plot is about the Guardians which were North or Santa Claus (Alec Baldwin), the Tooth Fairy (Isla Fisher), Bunnymund or the Easter Bunny (Hugh Jackman), and the Sandman. The Guardians were facing an evil spirit known as Pitch (Jude Law) who wanted to take over the world by coating it with fear.

The Guardians then had to join forces to take on their common enemy who wanted to wipe them off the board by making children stop believing in them, to do this he clouded their minds with fear. The Guardians then enlisted Jack Frost (Chris Pine) to help stop Pitch. Frost is 300 years old in the business of being frost and he seemed to be the only spirit that seemed to be able to match Pitch.

The movie is more like an introductory story to who Jack Frost was before he became Jack Frost, and what his driving force is.

There are possibilities of a sequel which could be a journey showing us the genesis of each of the other Guardians, but the making of such depends heavily on the box office performance of this one. The movie is fun to watch and is a good one to go see with your family.
