DreamWorks' newest picture is definitely one for the kids, but director Peter Ramsey makes it fun enough to put a smile on parents' faces.

Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)

An entertaining experience, whether you see it in 3-D or 2-D, 'Rise of the Guardians' is an enjoyable adventure for all ages.

Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)

The animation's usually a visual delight. There's enough visual spark and inventiveness to make this animated adventure rise above the Christmas crowd of flicks.

Rise of the Guardians delivers a giddy, kinetic excitement as its heroes whoosh and swoop through the air, or glide and skitter on ice.

In one of the best, brightest, most beautifully realised and visually sumptuous tentpole animation films of the year...an absolute joy to behold, as lovingly made a piece of corporate entertainment as you're likely to find at the multiplex.

From the wind rustling through Jack Frost's white hair to the panoramic vistas as they fly through the sky, it all looks amazing.

The Mercury

Whatever its agenda might (or might not) be, Rise of the Guardians is a surprisingly rousing tale with a story that resonates easily, if not deeply.

The Sunday Age

Rise of the Guardians is both reasonably quirky and mildly serious. It wants children to believe there's more to animation than fast food tie-ins.

Urban Cinefile

Youngsters will enjoy the diversion with the film's cute characters and creative visuals although there is a frenetic feel about the action that tends to overwhelm the story on an emotional level. As a result, there is little heart that resonates

An unusual 3D tale about a playful free spirit who is thrilled to become a Guardian who watches over children.

Aisle Seat

Rise of the Guardians is kind of like The Avengers, except that instead of superheroes, the characters are people your parents lied to you about when you were a kid. It could become a perennial family favorite.

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

A visual feast and a serious miscalculation: The movie tells us that if kids don't get toys and colored eggs, they stop believing, and Christmas and Easter die.

To fully enjoy this you will have to leave your cynicism at the door and embrace your inner child. But that inner child - and any child for that matter - will be touched by the story and impressed by the action.
