DreamWorks Animation has had some amazing films that I love, ‘Shrek’, ‘Chicken Run’, ‘How to Train Your Dragon’, but DWA has pulled their most creative and impressive film to date with ‘Rise of the Guardians’.
Jack Frost is awaken in a frozen pond, where no one can see or hear him. After Pitch Black strikes fear onto the world and the faith of the guardians, they enlist the help of Jack Frost, from the Man on the Moon’s decision, to join forces to stop the Boogeyman’s wrath of fear.
‘Rise of the Guardians’ has well developed characters, all being fun to watch, with Jack Frost as the film’s central star, focusing on how he became Jack Frost and learn more about his character which the audience cares and cheers for. The film has a threatening villain, and is written extremely well by his motifs on wanting to be believed, which Jack Frost can relate to.
The film is visually impressive, being bright, colourful and vibrant, but also dark at times, and the action sequences are technically well executed, on par with ‘Kung Fu Panda’.
‘Rise of the Guardians’ is on the levels of a Pixar film, it’s creative, it’s hilarious, it’s fun, it’s action-packed, and it’s a wonderfully crafted film that the whole family can enjoy.
‘Rise of the Guardians’ is DreamWorks Animation at their very best.
