Box Office
James Rocchi quote iconGrown-ups can worry about frame-rates in animation or if ticket sales will justify a Guardians 2, but kids will watch Rise for its nicely-tuned mix of gentle spirit and zesty storytelling, enjoying its on-screen pleasures in the moment and leaving the theater inspired more to dream than to buy.
15
Chicago Sunday Times
Roger Ebert quote iconThis is a hyperkinetic 3-D action comedy, with the characters forever racing on Santa's sleigh, hurtling down chutes and zooming through tunnels that rework the same 3-D illusions over and over again.

T. Durgin quote iconRise of the Guardians is an optimistic film for an increasingly cynical and pessimistic age. I really loved it. A film like this should be cherished, celebrated, recommended, and (yes) believed in.

Tomatometer quote iconA sort of Avengers for the elementary school set, Rise of the Guardians is wonderfully animated and briskly paced, but it's only so-so in the storytelling department.
