I was not looking forward to watching this movie, but it turns out it was totally worth my time. The animation is just beautiful. The owls look realistic, the backgrounds look scary when they are supposed to and astonishing too. The characters were so loveable. My personal favorites were Soren and Mrs. P (the nanny snake). The battle was pretty cool too. I like how they left space for a sequel at the end. SPOILER: It was so sad how his brother, Kludd (this name comes from the chaplain of the KKK), turned evil. This movie is about intolerance and the idea of racial superiorty. This was shown through the bad guys who were like the KKK and Nazis. It also had a little bit about the costs of war. This shown through Soren's hero.

Cliched, But Entertaining

The Owls of Ga'Hoole is a flawed film, and it would be hard to deny that. However, like any good film, The Owls of Ga'Hoole overcomes its (many) shortcomings and provides an enjoyable and mostly engaging 97 minutes.

Soren, a naive and adventurous barn owl, has his life forever changed when he's kidnapped (along with his brother, Kludd) by henchmen of the Queen of the Pure Ones, Nyra. Soren manages to escape (along with another owl named Gylfie), though Kludd is deceived by Nyra and joins forces with the Pure Ones. Soren and Gylfie meet up with new friends, in hopes of stopping an evil plot concocted by the leader of the Pure Ones, Metal Beak.

Frankly, the story is nothing to write home about. Literally following every single fantasy cliche in the book, The Owls of Ga'Hoole is certa...

Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole

Sometimes trailers can never do justice to quality movies. This was a huge surprise. Mysterious owls have abducted Soren (Jim Sturgess), brother Kludd (Ryan Kwanten) and sister, Eglantine (Adrienne DeFaria) to a place where Pure Ones are being trained. Soren escapes and encounters Twilight (Anthony LaPaglia) and Digger (David Wenham). Only minor flaws were the loaded characters, lack of character development and somewhat predictable plot. The film's cinematography was surreal, voice acting apt and animation's details from the rain drops, fire, reflection from the eyes were just impeccable. Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole is such a visual feast that touches on subjects such as jealousy, betrayal, bravery, heroism, friendship and insecurities. One of the most underrated...

Owl Hooo? =D

"Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole" is an animated adventure film depicting a "good vs evil" conflict between the owls. The story starts with the introduction of the "legend" which then started the great adventure of the owls.

Actually, before watching this film, I wasn't expecting much for someone told me it isn't that good. Watching the film makes me clueless how did she come up with "not good" conclusion.

Overall, the animation looks good, visually appealing. However, I just thought that Owls are not really good characters for action scenes (but do well for adventure). The sounds, for me, didn't contribute much.

I like the story and how it was left for a sequel. The twist is kinda predictable ***SPOILER!!!*** I think it was not good that they present the conversati...
