Movie Review: The Rise of the Guardians

Annapoorani K. H., I Year M. Sc. Chemistry.

As children, we’ve all grown up hearing about Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy, the Sandman and of course, the Easter Bunny. A few would’ve heard of Jack Frost. More importantly, we believed in them. We believed that every Christmas Santa would leave us presents for good behaviour, the Tooth Fairy would give us a penny for being brave when a tooth fell and so on. Our good dreams come from the Sandman and the Easter Bunny was why Easter is so much fun! When nightmares came from Pitch Black, we crawled into our parents’ bed and took comfort from their presence.

As we got older, we grew up. We quit believing in it. Well, this movie will re-instate your belief! A gripping story with an equally well-crafted screenplay ensures that the movie keeps you riveted. While the age-old good vs evil concept is at the base of this movie, there’s no element of predictability.

Movies with an all-star cast have been known to fail at the box-office but this isn’t one of those. The characters have the right voices, the right messages and exactly the same amount of screen-time. You’ll love the gruff wisdom of Santa, the sweet support of the Tooth Fairy, the constant sarcastic banter between Bunny and Frost and above all, the quirks of the Sandman. Jude Law’s Pitch Black will ensure shivers run down your back and have you wishing for his defeat. Cold, cunning and terrifying are the words to describe him.

Fast-paced, thrilling and brilliant, this is one movie that will ensure that we never stop believing that there are guardians that watch over you. You can watch it over and over again without getting bored!
