'Rise of the Guardians' is a Holiday Treat

Jack Frost takes a 3D animation adventure to save all that is good and nice in the world.

Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy and the Sandman draft Jack Frost to be in their gang to guard against all things evil as they protect the magical state of childhood in "Rise of the Guardians."

Stars include Alec Baldwin, Jude Law, Hugh Jackman, Chris Pine and Isla Fisher who all lend their voices to this visually stunning film perfect for the holiday season.

Rise of the Guardians is playing in East Atlanta Patch at the Starlight Six Drive-in Theatre in South DeKalb.

I'll be the first one to say that it's easy to be cynical about holiday movies but this one won't let you. This certainly isn't a Judeo-Christian holiday-themed film, as you might imagine. That's what makes it a better than your average Christmastime film.

Turning these mythical beings into superheroes is clever. If it does well at the box office I see a franchise in the making. The Flick-0-Meter gives "Rise of the Guardians" a four out of five. This type of film has staying power for years and years with sequels and merchandising. The movie studios like that kind of thing, and it would be childish to believe otherwise.
