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.

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.Read more ›
The film follows the storyline of the first three books in the series: The Capture, The Journey, and The Rescue, which is about the young Barn Owl Soren, and his elder brother Kludd being kidnapped and taken to St. Aegolius Academy for Orphaned Owls. At the "academy," Soren meets an Elf Owl named Gylfie and became friends. Then Soren and Gylfie see the terrible things that are going on at St Agie, and manage to escape, thanks to an owl named Grimble; but Kludd stayed behind - as a soldier to the evil Metalbeak. So Soren and Gylfie set off to find the Guardians of Ga'Hoole to help save the brainwashed owlets. Along the way, they met up with Digger a comical Burrowing Owl and Twilight a minstrel Great Grey Owl; together, the owls, along Mrs Plithiver, Soren's nurse-maid snake (who had been caught by Twilight as dinner), set off for the great tree of Ga'Hoole to find the Guardians. So anyway, this film is worth seeing.
