Overview

Director Zack Snyder teams with screenwriters John Collee and John Orloff to adapt author Kathryn Lasky's popular series of children's books about a group of kidnapped owlets who take flight to save their kingdom from an ancient evil by locating the legendary Guardians of Ga'Hoole. As a young hatchling, Soren would sit transfixed whenever his father would tell the tale of the Guardians of Ga'Hoole and their tireless efforts to defeat the malevolent Pure Ones, whose aim was to exterminate the entire owl population. After hearing the high-flying tales of adventure, Soren would fantasize about gliding through the clouds with the brave owl soldiers while his jealous older brother, Kludd, attempted to gain their father's favor by becoming a skilled hunter. One day, Kludd's anger gets the best of him, and the next thing he knows he's tumbling over the edge of the nest with Soren. But instead of falling to the ground, the siblings are quickly snatched up by the dreaded Pure Ones, and are taken to a place where their parents will never find them. Incredibly, Soren and group of fearless young owls manage to stage a daring escape. With the future of the owl kingdoms hanging in the balance, brave Soren and his newfound friends travel to the ends of the earth in hopes of finding the mythical Great Tree and convincing the Guardians of Ga'Hoole to help defeat the Pure Ones once and for all.

    Beautiful and Exciting!

    This movie was visually striking, funny, and emotional. All winning combinations for a brilliant movie. As an owl fanatic with work in Owl Conservations, I couldn't stop the smile that spread over my face everytime they presented a new type of owl. I think I practically died of owl cuteness OVERLOAD! One thing that suprised me though is how serious this movie is. I honestly don't think it's a childs movie. It's kind of Lord of the Rings meets Harry Potter! But beautifully crafted with different owls and an awesome soundtrack that includes 30 Seconds to Mars and Owl City. This is a MUST BUY!

    Great Guardians.

    This was a great DVD, enjoyed the flight scenes and the imagery. The storyline was rather fascinating and intriguing, definitely held my attention throughout the length of the movie. Also the message/the moral of the storyline was easy to grasp. In my opinion this would be a good choice for a family movie with youth about eight years old and older. Some of the peril scenes may not be for everyone, yet it was still a great experience.
