Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole

Starring (the voices of): Sam Neill, Geoffrey Rush, Hugo Weaving, David Wenham, Helen Mirren, Emily Barclay, Abbie Cornish.
Genre: Animated/Fantasy

This fantasy family adventure is directed by Zack Snyder, of 300, Watchmen and Sucker Punch fame, making his animation debut. I think he should stick to adult movies, because I thought this flick, marketed as a "family adventure" was way too dark and actually left me depressed! The computer animation is brilliantly done; the owls, ocean and scenery look fantastic, but the story is horrible, in my opinion (it's based on the first three Guardians of Ga-Hoole books). Basically, a young barn owl is kidnapped by an evil owl army, where owlets are brainwashed into becoming soldiers. Fun, right? I don't know, maybe it's a boy movie. Personally I don't like seeing animals fighting until there's blood (even if they're animated). But maybe that's just me. Yeah. Thumbs down. :(

What did you think?

  1. My son loves this movie! When I watched it at the start the owls scared me LOL but after a while I got use to them. I agree its not the best movie and the storyline is not that great.
