Rise of the Guardians was great! It has a great story line, compelling characters, and is just flat out a lot of fun. If you are looking for a movie to take the family to over the holiday's this would be a great choice that will entertain the adults as well as the kids. It is just the right length at 137 minutes as well. Sometimes with kids movies they rush through for the shortened attention spans of kids and don't develop the story line well. This is not the case with Rise of the Guardians.
