Soren (Jim Sturgess), a young barn owl, is kidnapped by owls of St. Aggie's, ostensibly an orphanage, where owlets are brainwashed into becoming soldiers.

At the very start of the film Soren's father, Noctus, is shown flying through the sky at sunrise passing through the Warner Brothers and Village Roadshow logos, before diving under the film's title. See more »
This has to be the best animated film you can find and I'll tell you why, its an absolute visual feast, the effects are just breathtaking and the story has a real LORD OF THE RINGS feel to it, I've often described this film as an art film because of the tremendous attention to detail and the occasional slow motion scene where it shows off its great detailed animation the most.
The other thing about it is its very different from the other animated films along the lines of PLANET 51, KUNG FU PANDA etc. Its more of a mature film meant for a slightly older audience but young kids and adults alike should have blast with this film.
Plus, the best way to watch this film is definitely in HD or even in normal DVD format because watching it any other way would only spoil it for you.
