Film Review | Rise of the Guardians

An animated film which pitches the mythic good figures at the North Pole against the evil

Teenage avenger

This animation film, directed by Peter Ramsey, brings together Santa Claus (Alec Baldwin), Tooth Fairy (Isla Fisher), Easter Bunny (Hugh Jackman) and other such mythic good figures at the North Pole against the evil Pitch (Jude Law).

A gifted and tragic teenager, Jack Frost (Chris Pine), gets the job of executing the mission.

He is the spirit of winter, and lifted from the depths of a frozen lake by the Man in the Moon, and has been invisible ever since because people don’t believe in him.

The North Pole members convince the boy to come out of his isolation and fight this battle for posterity.

‘Rise of the Guardians’ released in theatres on Friday.
