The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

An­i­mated movies fall into two cat­e­gories: those that ap­peal to kids and those that also keep the in­ter­est of the par­ents who take them to the movies. The Toy Story fran­chise is one of the best ex­am­ples of the lat­ter. Rise Of The Guardians is one for lit­tle kids only. That’s not to say it isn’t vis­ually amaz­ing, though. It does have some much-loved characters – Jack Frost, Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy – and a cast of A-list ac­tors to pro­vide the voices (in­clud­ing Hugh Jack­man and Jude Law). But while the pre­dictable bad­dies-vs-good­ies bat­tle is a great mes­sage, the clever lines and laughs are in short sup­ply. Def­i­nitely kids only. ★★★ Ex­tras: Film­mak­ers com­men­tary, spe­cial features: Dream­ers & Be­liev­ers, World of Dream works An­i­ma­tion and More Magic. ★★
