Soren, a young barn owl, is kidnapped by owls of St. Aggie's, ostensibly an orphanage, where owlets are brainwashed into becoming soldiers. He and his new friends escape to the island of Ga'Hoole, to assist its noble, wise owls who fight the army being created by the wicked rulers of St. Aggie's. The film is based on the first three books in the series.
I am in a state of utter disbelief. Zack Snyder might be a genius. That was one of the most beautiful things I have ever seen. It made my heart soar. Tears flowed from beginning to end. These owls were infinitely adorable. It's the most visually breathtaking animated film around. The film features beauty beyond words. Wow. I love Zack Snyder.
A remarkable little film. Zack Snyder, a director I initially assumed would be an ill fit for this project, really utilizes his strengths here. Epic and grandiose fight scenes, beautiful and painterly visuals, and a sweet, earnestly emotional center to it all. It's a wonderfully constructed and executed adventure, earnestly weaving the lore and mythology into the core narrative seamlessly. Some parts don't work; most notably the jarring Owl City "song", and some clunky dialogue; but Legend of the Guardians is a well-rounded adventure of a film, crucially embracing the fanciful aesthetic a tale of warrior owls carries with it. It's beautiful and earnest, a deliberately told story from an overqualified director. A sequel would be welcomed with open arms.
A fun, gorgeous, adventure film. I love the reality rooted design of the characters and so many of the the animation subtleties.
Some hideous music selections are the only things that bring this movie down for me.
At least the animation is pretty.
Film #16 of my March 2016 Scavenger Hunt
Film #18: A movie directed by Zack Snyder as preparation for Batman v. Superman (#3)
Wow. Just wow. I was literally not expecting this. Legend of the Guardians is better than Watchmen. There I said it. Better than Watchmen.
Seriously, who knew that an animated movie about warrior owls would be a far superior movie to whatever that film about the naked blue alien was all about? Still don't get it.
Does it have flaws! Sure it does; it could have had a bit more characterization and exposition in setting up this fantasy world, some of the supporting characters on the good side can feel annoying at times (especially when they're…
Since it was announced recently (to the joy of some and detriment of others) that Zack Snyder will be directing the Justice League movie in 2017 (following his Batman/Superman movie), I decided to watch this strange owl movie that he directed in 2010. It was just as bad as I imagined, and I still have no idea why he thought it would be a good idea to direct a computer generated movie about owls fighting. Even if I could tell you what was going on, I never really cared. I am not sure why it's ranked 7.0 on IMDB unless an army of passionate 11-year olds did that.
Proof that, yes, Zack Snyder is out of his f**king mind.
was the pun worth using owl city for the soundtrack???
(my little sister thought the books were better)
Legend of the Guardians is a beautiful film. From the colour palette to the expressions on the little owls faces. Have you ever seen an owl that looks close to tears? I have, I saw it whilst watching this movie. The visuals really are great.
It's your typical warring clan movie, but with owls. Owls are kidnapped and forced to work for the Evil Owl HQ, they escape and seek reinforcements from the Good Owls. Pretty standard. If I was hosting a D&D campaign using only owlbears as playable characters, Legends of the Guardians would be a good referential starting point. Also, it's by Zack Snyder and committed greater crimes against storytelling than this.
Honestly, I just wanted to watch something low maintenance with owls in it. Points also awarded for using a song by Owl City in the movie. Hohohoho.
A LENDA DOS GUARDIÕES
Una hora y media de puro espectáculo visual que no aburre en ningún momento, pero que tampoco consigue superar nunca la barrera de lo increíblemente poco que me interesa absolutamente todo lo que está pasando en pantalla.
Es, a pesar de todo y de forma objetiva, la mejor película de fantasía épica protagonizada por búhos parlantes que he visto en mi vida.
Snyder at its most subtle and innocent, it's just that the guy is not that good at those things.
No recordaba yo que esta película fuese tan estresante. Lo mejor de esta película es poder verla en 3D.
Truly a shame that something so beautiful would have such a horribly unpolished script. Its like they wrote one draft then took it to shoot cgi over. Could have truly been something.
You know, there are people who love Zack Snyder and then there are people who are just completely wrong.
IMDB's the most watched (voted) animated movies of all time.
