I'm not a huge fan of animated films in general, but once every so often, one comes along that is something truly special. It's fair to say that Rise of the Guardians now ranks among my favourites and is easily the best to be released this year. The story focuses on Jack Frost as he becomes a "Guardian" and (reluctantly) joins Santa Claus, Sandman, the Easter Bunny, and the Tooth Fairy in order to stop the Boogeyman from spreading fear across the globe. It's a simple enough idea on paper, but writer David Lindsay-Abaire (Oz: The Great and Powerful) injects an awful lot of heart and laughs into what could have otherwise been totally forgettable. It really is The Avengers for kids! However, it's grounded with a very human element which at times may feel superfluous, but ultimately adds an awful lot and becomes a major part of the movie. »
