When a young owl is abducted by an evil Owl army, he must escape with new-found friends and seek the legendary Guardians. I originally saw this in the theater in 3-D and it was awesome visually the 3-D in the theater was great one of the finest I've seen so far I had high hopes for the blu-ray and it doesn't disappoint. I wanted a movie that delivered great 3D special effects and on that had a good story line. It is disappointing it did not win the Oscar for best animated film--it went to Toy Story 3, which I didn't even bother to see. The villains of the film are really menacing, a feat considering that almost every character in the film are owls.
The story tells of his search for adulthood in the process. Don't be remotely surprised if you see sequels as it certainly has the legs to do so. It's set in a fantasy, far-away world where 3D is put to terrific use. This is due to the animation, which is absolutely, spectacularly stunning. The rendering was fantastic and awesome. It is unfortunate that this film has not received more attention.
It has everything jealousy ,betrayal, good vs. Movement choreographed like a perfect ballet. The ending also hints at a sequel. Snyder stays in lieu of his previous films with his infamous slow motion effect. 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. 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.
Audio quality is excellent throughout the movie. Third minus: the scene selections aren't titled. However that is not to say that the movie in itself is not a good movie. Aggie's, ostensibly an orphanage, where owlets are brainwashed into becoming soldiers. The animation is fantastic, extremely realistic.
The storyline is fantastic and the animation is top notch. Its tempo kept gaining speed to the end hurling me to the edge of my seat. I loved this movie, it should be better known. The story was never dull for a moment. The climax of the story comes with the ending battle between the forces of light and dark, and the the film tells of the young owl's adventures in finding his way between good and evil. In short, it's one of the best animated films of the year.
Some'll say it's stupid for the exact same reasons. The film is amazing, I absolutely loved it, the 3D animation is spectacular, the voice acting is incredible and the music is mesmerizing!

It's my believe that since with have such a limited selection of 3D tittles, all movies out there worth watching for the right price. I found the Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'hoole to be a great film. There's depth, determination and heart to these characters. If you don't see this in 3D you have missed out on an amazing experience. The kids in the theater seemed to have no trouble either.
Golly, I could watch this every day and not get bored. This is due to the animation, which is absolutely, spectacularly stunning. It's a family film, meaning there's something for both kids and those who are kids-at-heart! Ultimately you will come out of the film and feel the money has been well spent! And I hope Snyder returns as well. Story-wise, it's obviously unoriginal, but it is told very well. I was expecting a childish movie, but this in fact is for a much more mature audience, kids will not like it for sure as it is really dark. It is inspirational, breathtaking, humorous and educational with all the essentials of an all in all great story and movie. Gore is only alluded to but sometimes strongly in the movie.
There's the armor, and the swords talons , and then there's the big bad Metal Beak and the young hero Soren who is destined for greatness. The kids and adults will both learn, while at the same time be visually enraptured by the animation's beauty. The interaction of air and digital feathers work in a harmony that makes Avatar look like an old computer game. And I hope Snyder returns as well. Soren, a young barn owl, is kidnapped by owls of St. Some of the battle sequences will be too intense for them.
I for one am looking forward to Zack Snyder doing more in this series. This is definitely a movie to at the very least rent to experience. Maybe, it is just that I'm too old for kid's stories. They are all very unique in how the talk, how they move, and how they look. Legend of the Guardians is a milestone for animation and a 3D visual masterpiece. And seeing it in 3D is a plus, no matter what anyone else says.
