Snowflakes drifting from the sky. Waking up in the middle of the night on Christmas Eve to the sound of faint jingle bells. Going on Easter egg hunts in the springtime. Finding a quarter in the place of a tooth that you left the night before. Having dreams, not nightmares. These are all works of the Guardians, in the new movie Rise of the Guardians directed by Peter Ramsey. Rise of the Guardians is about the life and memories of Jack Frost (Chris Pine), who gets chosen by the Man in the Moon to become a Guardian, with Santa Claus (Alec Baldwin), the Easter Bunny (Hugh Jackman), the Tooth Fairy (Isla Fisher), and the Sandman (who doesn’t have a voice in this movie). When the Tooth Fairy tells Jack that he had a past before he became Jack Frost, he immediately wanted to see his past, and why the Man in the Moon chose him to be a Guardian. Just when Jack was about to find his past, a nightmarish man called Pitch Black, or the Boogieman (Jude Law) decides to step in the way and ruin all of the Guardians by making all of the kids not believe in the Guardians anymore. Then, things with Jack and the Guardians take a turn for the worse. I loved this movie. I think that the 3D in it was definitely worth it, even in the darker scenes. Peter Ramsey definitely did a good job with the voices and the lighting, so that the dark sand created by the Boogieman doesn’t disappear with the 3D glasses. Another thing about this movie that I loved was that the characters aren’t what you would think that they are. Santa is a tall man with tattoos, the Easter Bunny is an Australian 6 foot tall rabbit, and the Tooth Fairy is kind of like a hummingbird. I wouldn’t recommend this movie for any kid under the ages of 7 or 8, depending on the kid, because this film gets scary at the end, and even towards the middle. This is a great movie, and I hope everyone can see it!
