Review: Rise of the Guardians (2012)

Imagine a world where Santa, the Tooth Fairy, the Easter Bunny and the Sandman all exist, and they must join forces to help save all the children whom they serve from a mischievous foe. No, it’s not another sequel to The Santa Clause – it’s Rise of the Guardians, an animated family fantasy adventure from the Dreamworks label that is as likeable and fun as it is instantly forgettable. There’s plenty of action and visual dazzle to entertain the kids, and a sprinkling of amusing lines for the adults in tow. But it never quite escapes the sense that it was dreamt up by a marketing manager; it looks and feels like a computer game that was suddenly diverted on to the big screen at the eleventh hour.
