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.
Where is green Zoe Saldana? OH, wrong "Guardians". This one is a small-scale version of the "Lord of the Rings" with owls. Owls that wear metal Roman helmets. Owls are creepy. They can turn their head almost 360 degrees which freaks me out.
A competent told heros journey with excellent voice acting and a dramatic flare. Say what you want about Zack Snyder's superhero fare... But his style 100 percent compliments this film.
I would absolutely love to see The Mice Templar or Mouse Guard graphic novels.done with this animation style. It's absolutely gorgeous.
Highly recommend this to anyone e whole has only seen Snyder's live action output. It's really a gem in his filmography that is shamefully underseen.
Самая потрясающая графика в мультипликации, которую я когда-либо видел!
Too gentle, too generic, too boring nice looking though but I truly could care less about this movie. It should have been traditional animation too -- that would have been cool. The ending 20 mins are pretty decent and actually emotional which is worth checking out I guess.
Before Zack Snyder became the controversial shaper of the DC universe with 'Man of Steel' and 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' he was involved in this largely Australian animated feature.
When a young owl and his brother are kidnapped by a group of owls calling themselves the 'Pure Ones' he is forced to escape and seek help against their evil schemes. He sets off in search of the legendary Owls of Ga'Hoolie, fierce warriors who will help him rescue the other captives, including his brother.
Technically wonderful (the treatment of feathers on the owls in flight is breathtaking) the story is fine and the voice performances are all good. The weaknesses are some fairly apparent potholes and during the…
A Action/family film about owls? Thanks to its beautiful and Zack Snyder's thematic roots, Legends Of The Guardians is a lot better then what it sounds.
No idea what was going on the whole time :)
A Lenda dos Guardiões é um bom filme. Tem um ótimo visual, mas tem um roteiro longo e parado. É um filme que destaca o drama dos personagens e têm cenas com violência, coisas que não se espera de uma animação.

Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole is a good movie. It has a great look, but has a long and stopped script. It is a film that highlights the drama of the characters and have scenes with violence, things that are not expected to animation.

Not really a birdy-bird type of person, but the animation is okay.
With Jon Favreau's The Lion King just announced, here's other Disney movies I want to see remade in live-action.
Top 200 is fairly solidified, afterwards the order becomes extremely loose. List is subject to change.
