Upon entering the movie theater to watch this film, I thought that the movie “Rise of the Guardians” would be just another fun movie that the whole family could enjoy.

 While that was true, one thing was not. This movie was not “just another movie.”

 “Rise of the Guardians” far exceeded my expectations. It was a fun, whimsical movie jam-packed full of all kinds of fanciful concepts and virtuous morals for the viewer to ponder.

 The movie was about fairy-tale people and creatures, such as Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, the Sand Man, the Tooth Fairy, Jack Frost, and The Boogie Man.  

 Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, the Sand Man, and the Tooth fairy are the guardians of children and watch over them to bring them hope and wonder. They are told by the Man on the Moon that they must allow Jack Frost to join them in their fight against an old foe who had, once again, recently emerged to create chaos: The Boogie Man.

And so, the rest of the movie is a battle between good and evil, as the Boogie Man, or Pitch Black, tries relentlessly to destroy the holidays associated with the guardians to make children stop believing in them.

 The voice actors and actresses for “Rise of the Guardians” are: Chris Pine as Jack Frost, Alec Baldwin as Santa Claus, Jude Law as Pitch Black, Isla Fischer as the Tooth Fairy, and Hugh Jackman as the Easter Bunny.

 The creators of the movie had amazed me down to every last, little detail. The characters were phenomenal; they all had idiosyncratic yet entirely appropriate personalities, quirks, and appearances.

 There were funny parts that were brought back throughout the movie in a way that was amusing and simply genius, rather than redundant.

 Everything about the designs and the ideas was innovative and non-conforming.  They took the concept of the different types of holidays and old folklore and made them more modern and better.

 I would definitely suggest this movie to any person of any age. It is a story of wonder and excitement that anyone can enjoy.
