Legend of the Guardian Movie Review
As much as I wanted to start my review with a quote from the movie, I can't because I wasn't able to take note any of the status-worth lines by the Owls because I was too spellbound by the movie.
Just a brief background, the movie is based from the first three books, Guardians of Ga'Hoole by Kathryn Lasky. The film follows Soren, a young owl enthralled by his father's epic stories of the Guardians of Ga'Hoole, as he embarks on a quest to follow his dream.. only to discover they are real.
What to expect. A lot of Owls, ofcourse. The movie will tell you also different types of Owls, you have never even heard before. The story is quite simple (maybe because this is just a summary of the first three books) from your bedtime stories come a real journey in finding your dreams. The animation is a must see, watch out for slow motion owl fight. I feel somehow that it might be a violent movie for kids, since the second half of the film is mostly owl battle scenes. The voices behind the owls were commendable, combines with the eye-catching visuals. But I love the fantastic animation of the movie, the enchanting place of Ga'Hoole, the epic feel of something you were just dreaming turned out to be real. It's a first rate family entertainment and you MUST WATCH IT IN 3D.
Legend of the Guardian, The Owls of Ga'Hoole will start showing today in IMAX 3D, Digital 3D, and regular format. The movie is distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
