Legend of the Guardians: A Surprising Diamond In The Rough! (by fieldsofgrass419)
Within the Pixar Dominated, Slapstick Permeated, Cookie-Cutter animated generation we currently live in, Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole, Directed by Zack Snyder "300" & "Watchmen" , breaks this pedestrian mold through its Captivating Visuals, Engaging 3D, and its Lord of the Rings-like Odyssey.Based on a series of books written by Kathryn Lasky, this mythological story centers on dreamer Soren Jim Sturgess , a young owl enamored with stories of "The Guardians", a clan of warrior owls who hail from the Tree of Ga'Hoole, and protect the <more>
weak from an evil army called the Pure Ones. When Soren and his brother, Kludd Ryan Kwanten , are kidnapped by these Pure Ones, the stories become reality. Soren escapes and hunts for the Guardians to save the owl kingdom from the Pure Ones, while Kludd slowly becomes one.Legend of the Guardians is a milestone for animation and a 3D visual masterpiece. Under the direction of Snyder, Australian company Animal Logic Creators of "Happy Feet" & special FX for "The Matrix" and "Lord of the Rings" have achieved something incredibly remarkable. The interaction of air and digital feathers work in a harmony that makes Avatar look like an old computer game. The landscapes are absolutely breathtaking, Monsoons are shimmering and talons glistening, this brings out the best in Snyder's heavily artistic directing style, and has adorned this movie with graceful battle scenes, beautifully blended with his signature slow motion shots at the perfect moments.With its comparisons to films like "The Secret of NIMH", "Watership Down", "The Dark Crystal", with clear shades of "Star Wars", Guardians is not your run-of-the-mill animated movie with a fart joke every 10 seconds. The movie takes on a much more serious disposition which fits perfectly with its thematic flow. It is important to note, the film deals with issues such as courage, unity, loyalty, faith, sacrifice and betrayal tackled by Snyder with understated maturity. Though the story moves at a fairly quick pace, you will be immersed in what develops, as the writers did well to implement essentials to the storyline with comprehensible dialogue.With that being said, Guardians is an engaging and relatively intense movie from start to finish. Thus, successfully separating our mindset of "Animated" and "Kid Friendly" being synonymous with each other. It is inspirational, breathtaking, humorous and educational with all the essentials of an all in all great story and movie. The kids and adults will both learn, while at the same time be visually enraptured by the animation's beauty. Don't be remotely surprised if you see sequels as it certainly has the legs to do so...or should I say wings Note to self: Refrain from the bird puns..
Right from seeing the trailer in June, I had extremely high hopes for this movie. What drew me to this film was the animation quality and the animals they used; owls. Thankfully, the trailer did not reveal too many details about the story, I love going into a movie not knowing what to expect.As for the film itself, I found it to be an extremely captivating and magical experience, a similar experience that I had not felt since seeing Avatar in December of '09. The animation was beyond top notch as each audience member bare witness to the immense detail of the owls and the environment. Each <more>
feather on the owls and each rain drop and spec of dust from the environment was clearly visible in the film.The cast chosen for the film couldn't have turned out better than it did. The overall voice acting was fabulous and wouldn't have wanted any other way. The perfect octaves, expressions and moods were used in each line. Straying back to the previous paragraph slightly; most animated movies leave most people guessing the actor who plays the voice of a given actor. I, however, did not do this in this film. I was simply too immersed into the film to really notice.The music used in the movie was beautiful and majestic. Truly epic scores of musical composure added so much to the film. You can tell the music in a movie is great when you never truly notice it, not to say it doesn't deserve its recognition. I merely mean that if you notice the music in a movie, it simply stands out too much and becomes a distraction. So having not noticed the music, I simply mean that the music became one with the movie and the experience.In the end, I left the theatre with a very familiar feeling that I had not felt since I was a child. The feeling of classic Disney storytelling. The feeling of a masterpiece in the making. Legend of the Guardians is truly an epic film with a very rich plot and brilliant characters
I never thought I would see a computer animated feature film with as much attention to perfection as a Pixar film in my lifetime. This movie was it. Just amazing!Each frame a visual masterpiece. Movement choreographed like a perfect ballet. Unimaginable detail in each filament on the owl's feathers. Eyes glistening with soul. For gods sake even their irises dilating with their heartbeat! The story was never dull for a moment. Its tempo kept gaining speed to the end hurling me to the edge of my seat.If you don't see this in 3D you have missed out on an amazing experience. Enjoy :
One Legend coming up! (by yersifanel)
I love this movie. It might not be 100% accord to the books but that doesn't matter, the movie is fantastic, now if you liked the movie, go ahead and read the books, you won't be disappointed.If you young children are easy impressive, you might not like them asking you "but why is the pretty bird doing those bad things?" and stuff like that, just imagine an epic movie, you know: knights, kings, queens and battles, but for children and adults alike, it depends on how much your kids know about epic stories and the implications of war.The visual designs are awesome and the <more>
Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole: Soars on Powerful Wings (by mgoldhamer)
Remember when you first saw "Peter Pan," at a tender age and you were spell bound? "Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Holle" will bring back that same impression for everyone at any age. Yes, that is a very strong statement to make but the film flies on such great wings to support such a claim. Fantasy can unleash a wonderful feeling and emotion on an audience and the effects of the 3D only greatly enhances this experience. Viewing this film at a screening allows one to see how children, parents, grand parents, and those in between, to react together in an <more>
environment without cell phones! That is correct, no external, electronic, audio, or video interference allowed. This brought the audience closer,as a group because the only interaction was The Owls of Ga'Holle. The audience was laughing, gasping, and thrilled with the events and the 3D visual effects. The story of " The Owls," is not new, except for the very young, but an excellent mixing of tales, stories, and fables which teach us all life's lessons. Two young brother owls, Soren Jim Sturges and Kludd Ryan Kwanten sneak out after their parents leave the nest for food, to try their young wings. Suddenly, they are kidnapped by two larger owls and taken away. Thus begins an incredible journey. The voices of Helen Mirren, Geoffrey Rush, and Sam Neil are also in the cast. The film is directed by Jack Snyder who works magic on the silver screen in this film. The flying portions and the 3D alone are worth the price of admission. "The Owls," is based on the children's novels by Kathryn Lasky, called "the Guardians of Ga'Hoole." This film is rated PG but parents use caution, younger children may be upset by the reality of life and the battle scenes. See "The Owls," on a large screen, allow the magic to let you ride on the wings of "The Guardians."
My 10 year old son has read all 15 books in the series. So when he saw they were coming out with the movie, he could hardly contain himself.I wasn't too thrilled about having to take him, I really don't like kids movies as a rule.I'm so happy we saw the movie in 3D. It was breathtaking. Can't imagine how boring it would have been in 2D.My son informed me that the movie did not follow the books,however he knew who all of the characters were and didn't seem to care. He chatted happily through most of the movie 'explaining' to me who was who and what was what.I was a <more>
bit surprised when the owls started to fight one another. Then it hit me. Ah Hah! No wonder he likes these books... The scenes that were supposed to be 'violent' weren't really... There were glimpses of blood, and lots of claws and swords, but nothing that I feel would actually scare a child.The theater was pretty empty which was a bit sad for opening night, and I feel that the movie is probably going to be cherished by a select age group, but overall it was a lot better than other kids movies I have suffered through in the past.
You can tell it's a Snyder film... (by TheNotChosenOne)
Legend of the Guardians: Owls of Ga'Hoole surprised me. I was expecting a childish movie, but this in fact is for a much more mature audience. Snyder stays in lieu of his previous films with his infamous slow motion effect. The visual effects are absolutely dazzling, it nearly looks real down to the feathers. The story centers around a young owl named Soren voiced by Jim Sturgess . Soren believes in these "Guardians of Ga'Hoole, which are basically owls who fight against the brainwashed soldiers of St. Aggie's. St. Aggies is an "orphanage" where Soren and his <more>
brother Kludd voiced by Ryan Kwanten are kidnapped to become workers. While there, he meets Gyflie, a much younger female owl voiced by Emily Barclay . The owls are "moonblinked" which is basically when someone is brainwashed. Kludd, seeking to be brave, joins St. Aggies and goes under the wing of Nyra voiced by Helen Mirren . Soren and Gyflie eventually escape, to contact The Guardians to help them fight the owls at St. Aggies.I thought it was good for the family, certainly, if you are a Snyder fan, then you may enjoy this. I have not read the books, but thoroughly enjoyed the movie. 8/10
Great movie, fantastic 3-D experience. Inspirational. (by jsdigloria)
Our family enjoyed this movie, saw it opening night. It was a wonderful 3-D experience. We felt like we were flying through the trees, over the oceans, in the rain, etc. Really beautiful. The story also was inspirational. The storyline was a little hard for me to follow because so many of the owls look similar, and the names are unfamiliar, but it was pretty easy to figure out good-guy, bad-guy, and know where the story was going.Our 9-yr old son was not frightened by the sometimes-intense action as another reviewer said, Lord-of-the-Rings-type action . Our 12-yr old daughter was fine too.
Good Movie - Horrible Adaptation (by odincreed)
As a movie this was a lot of fun. The animation was fantastic. Easily the best computer animation I have seen. And while I'm not a huge fan of 3D it was worth it for this movie.A great action packed ride of a few young owls trying to find the legendary Guardians from their bed time stories. They need the guardians because a great evil is brewing in the owl universe.I was fully captivated by the characters and the world of the Guardians. It was not a hugely original story in film form which is where my complaints come in. There ended up being quite a few cliché moments, and goofy scenes <more>
that were not needed.I have read nearly the whole series, certainly the first 3 that the movie is based on and I have to say I was very disappointed in the adaptation quality. Characters were changed, lost, added, major plot points were altered.Now, I know you can't expect movies of books to line up to the book, but I was fairly confident that Snyder would remain faithful based on his work on Watchmen and 300. That was not the case for Guardians.Granted there were some spot on moments, but a lot of it was "loosely inspired by the ideas that were probably in the books." I would probably have given this a full out 10 if I hadn't be so disappointed in the adaptation flaws, that to me, some major ones were unnecessary.That being said, I still enjoyed the movie, and will most likely see it again. I'm sure I will enjoy it more on future viewings as I now know what they have altered and can just enjoy the movie for itself.So final results, great family movie. Some scary scenes may frighten younger children. If you are loyal fans of the book, well, it's basic movements are the same but with major detail changes
