Product Details

Product Description

Acclaimed filmmaker Zack Snyder (300, Watchmen) makes his animation debut with this fantasy adventure based on the beloved books by Kathryn Lasky. Young owl Soren marvels at his father's epic stories of the Guardians of Ga'Hoole, mythic winged warriors who fought a great battle to save all owl kind from the evil Pure Ones. When he and brother Kludd fall from their treetop home and into the talons of the Pure Ones, it's up to Soren to make a daring escape with the help of other brave owls. Together they seek the Great Tree, home of the Guardians--the only hope of defeating the Pure Ones and saving the owl kingdoms. The stellar voice cast includes Abbie Cornish, Miriam Margolyes, Helen Mirren, Sam Neill, Geoffrey Rush, Jim Sturgess and Hugo Weaving.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic visuals March 5 2011
Not only is the story quite good, the visual effects are amazing ! I bought it thinking it would rather be a children movie kind, but I loved it myself and deeply recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pleasantly surprised! Feb. 4 2011
I never read any reviews for "Guardians", and had no preconceptions about the film before I saw it. I was pleasantly surprised. The visuals alone are breathtaking. It's a grand testament to the animators and their talents. More so, however, the film develops lovable characters (Gylfie, Digger, Twilight, and Lyes of Kiel specifically), and an identifiable lead in Soren. Its themes explore the validity of honouring our culture's legends, defending the innocent, and self-sacrifice for what is right. It is unashamedly a book adaption--though I never felt as though the film tied itself down in unnecessary exposition.

Instead the film thrusts its viewers into the world, mythos and story of the Owl Kingdoms...and succeeds. Its characters are humorous and lovable, its plot includes betrayal, friendship, honour and justice. And as a book adaption, its pacing is well developed and reworked into an understandable screenplay.

Now, would I recommend it for a younger audience? No, not necessarily. It does not employ a Disney or Pixar-esque family quality about it. Parents should know that there may be some scary moments for your young children. Does it leave some things unexplained (such as the "blue-lightening" as described in the editor's review)? In a sense, yes, but this in no way hinders the plot or the understanding of the risks that exist for our heroes. Though I can understand how some might consider it slow or muddled, I didn't find that. It had me, and I was enjoying every moment of it.

Some of todays animated films (and television programs) are regrettably damaging. So much of it centres around pathetic humour, and a lack of reverence.

This movie is excellent. I would recommended it to anyone. We have it in 3d which is even better, but the blu ray edition is also very good

5.0 out of 5 stars Great movie Jan. 14 2011
My husband and I loved this movie. One of the best this year for animated movies, for sure. It's nice when a kid's movie can make you wonder what will happen next and it's not something completely expected.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome 3D experience! April 29 2014
By Dev1979
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This rating is more of reflection on the 3D, not so much the movie. The 3D is amazing, there were more than enough wow moments. The story is okay, but I was more blown away by the 3D, and the story does well enough to compliment the 3D.

Bottom line, this film is definitely a film to showcase 3D on your tv or projector.

5.0 out of 5 stars not so 3D Jan. 30 2014
By Andy
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
The disc was bought for testing the 3D feature of my TV. It plays with no problem but the 3D effect was disappointing. I am not sure it is the production of the movie or some settings I have to play around with in the BD player.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too scary for young children
My six year old great niece loves owls, so I got this for her, but after watching it, I would not give it to her. The plot was too violent for a sensitive child.
