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.

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.

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.

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

I was so excited that the Ga'Hoole book series is coming to the big screen - I loved the series and read them all. My mom and I saw it in 3D, and we had known it would be worthy to get on DVD, when it comes.

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.

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.

Visuellement, il s'agit du plus beau film d'animation que j'ai jamais vu. Les détails sont hallucinants. Petits et grands adoreront ce film.

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.
