A wonderful animated movie...

Prior to sitting down to watch "The Guardian Brothers" (aka "Xiao men shen") I had not heard anything about it. Actually, I didn't even know it existed. I read the synopsis and decided to watch it. Plus, it was set in an Asian setting, which also appeals to me.

This animated movie had a very nice story to tell, and it is very enjoyable even if you are not overly familiar with Chinese mythology. You quickly and easily immerse yourself into the storyline and the world in which the story takes place.

The art style used in this animated movie was quite good, as it was definitely unique and lovely at the same time.

It was just a shame that it was an English dubbed version that I saw, although they had some pretty good voice actors on the cast list for the English dub.

"The Guardian Brothers" is definitely worth taking the time to sit down and watch, whether it is by yourself or with your family and kids.
