The most successful film of the year was The Avengersabout an all-star supergroup of superheroes. Then there was The Expendables 2about an all-star supergroup of pensionable action stars; and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotelabout an all-star supergroup of pensionable British thesps. And now there's Rise of the Guardians, about an all-star supergroup of characters that children believe in until they are about seven, including Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy. And where there's a trend, there are imitators.
A lot or a little? The parents' guide to what's in this movie.
Educational Value More for entertainment purposes than educational, but there's an interesting folkloric origin story to how these childhood icons were endowed with the protection of children's hopes and dreams.
Positive Messages The movie stresses the importance of the wonder of childhood, including belief in Santa, the Tooth Fairy, the Easter Bunny, etc. Preserving the innocence and joy of childhood is the reason the Guardians exist.
Although the movie isn't religious, the idea of faith in something you can't necessarily see is demonstrated as a positive force in children's lives. The Tooth Fairy and her adorable little fairies keep baby teeth because they store children's precious memories.
Santa loves providing toys because they spark imagination and wonder in kids. The Easter Bunny's eggs represent rebirth and new beginnings each spring.
Jack's journey is to discover how he fits into the group and what makes him worthy of joining them. Pitch Black and his minions are able to destroy one of the Guardians.
The other Guardians begin to lose their powers as children stop believing in them. Pitch cleans out the Tooth Fairy's castle, breaks all of the Easter Bunny's eggs, and generally breaks the hopeful spirit of all the children he encounters.
He undoes the work of the Sandman so that kids have nightmares instead of sweet dreams. Pitch's shadowy black stallions can be frightening. In a flashback, viewers see that the boy who was Jack Frost drowned saving his sister and then transformed into the icon of winter. In one brief scene, Tooth and Jack share a moment of staring in each other's eyes.
Language Australian Easter Bunny says "bloody" this and "bloody" that fairly frequently; Pitch Black tells Bunny to "go suck an egg," and some insults are thrown back and forth, including "coward.
The story is also based on a book series. One Guardian is destroyed but comes back to life at the end of the movie. There's some insulting language like "coward" and "selfish" and "go suck an egg," and in a flashback, a main character drowns but transforms rather than dying.
