Rated PG · 97 minutes · 2012

Adventure, Animated, Fantasy
Taking place after the events of the children’s books, Rise of the Guardians tells the story of Jack Frost (the voice of Chris Pine), who is tasked with joining a group of mythical characters such as North (aka Santa Claus, voiced by Alec Baldwin), the Tooth Fairy (Isla Fisher) and the Easter Bunny (Hugh Jackman) to save the world from being engulfed in nightmarish darkness by the Bogeyman, Pitch (Jude Law). While the film is time well-enough spent for kids, for adults, it’s a bit of a misfire: There is not enough adult humor to make it enjoyable for anyone over the age of 10, and there are far too many plot holes and inconsistencies. The voice cast, however, puts all they can into their performances. What a joy it is to hear Alec Baldwin finally doing something different from his usual shtick.
