09.22.2010 - Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole is a 2010 computer-animated family film loosely based on the book series Guardians of Ga'Hoole by Kathryn Lasky.

Zack Snyder is directing the film, and Jim Sturgess, Geoffrey Rush, Ryan Kwanten, Emily Barclay, Anthony LaPaglia, and David Wenham voice the characters.
The American studio Warner Bros. produced the film with the Australian companies Village Roadshow Pictures and Animal Logic, the latter having produced visual effects for Happy Feet.

Production took place in Australia, and the film was released on September 24, 2010. The Philippines had an advance red carpet press screening in SM North's IMAX 3D theater on September 22, 2010 courtesy of Warnes Bros.

Preceding the film is a new 3D cartoon starring Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner titled "Fur of Flying"...

Going Looney Tunes

This is the second time we have seen an animated short on Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner and indeed the Fur of Flying flew hilariously with laughter. The famed duo is now on 3D if you've been missing this cartoon. Back in the day this was a regular thing before you see the actual film and they are bringing them back for your viewing pleasure before the main feature.

The Owls Fly Like Family

Though I haven't read Guardians of Ga'Hoole some might say this is like 300 with owls in it instead of humans taking it to the skies. A feather tale that needs to be told through the directions of Zack Snyder. Not as bloody or sexually graphic as 300 this movie had its wing spreading up high with a parental guidance.

This makes an awesome film worth watching with the family as it has values, that we should look upon like our family. As a group of owls bonded by tragedy and fate they take their dreams that Legends of the Guardians is not a myth.

The action is good with some humor along the way, but the sound makes up for more violence that made this flick PG-rated.

Visual as ever be on 3D its done in good taste with the animation, but notice some very small scenes or frames are not entirely in this version. But you won't notice it when you've been consistently paying attention to the story.

Every owl has its day and the soundtrack's main theme was performed by Owl City. So familiarity of the the band composing for the movie is quite ironic. We got owls in the movie and who would be better to compose a song other than Owl City.

The Verdict

A great viewing for the entire family and definitely scores a 5 of 5 in a popcorn flick aimed for everyone. Save the violence to be guided with your parents as it is a PG-rated movie that is currently shown in your local theaters everywhere.
