Smutty is always looking for a superhero movie, but does not usually find them in the Holiday films between Thanksgiving and Christmas. This year is an exception.
Rise of the Guardians is a fresh take on the idea of a superhero and the role of Santa, the Tooth Fairy, Sandman and the Easter Bunny. The visuals from Dreamworks are as rich and stunning as Smutty could hope for in an animated movie.
And how can you lose with voicing from Hugh Jackman, Alec Baldwin and Chris Pine? Smutty believes this is the next holiday classic.
The bad guy here is fear going by the name Pitch. He of course, wants to take over the world, not understanding that Smutty already has done this. The concept is fresh, the pacing brisk enough to keep the attention of little humans and the voices snappy and funny. This movie will make you believe again.
