Rise of the Guardians I Games Fiends Review

Rise of the Guardians hits theaters right in time for the holidays, with a cadre of classic children’s characters in tow. However, these are not the archetypal holiday figures you may be used to; this film provides a bold re-imaging of those characters we all grew up with. Santa (Alec Baldwin) is an imposing Russian figure with tattoo sleeves that goes by the name North. The Easter Bunny (Hugh Jackman) is Australian with a penchant for boomerangs. And Jack Frost (Chris Pine) is a rambunctious and somewhat troubled 300 year old with no memory of his past. (Cinema, Rise of the Guardians) 4/5
