    Peter Hartlaub San Francisco Chronicle

    Legend of the Guardians sounds as if it were scripted by a team of 11-year-old boys, with too much plot for its 91-minute running time, a script that steals liberally from "Star Wars" and some occasionally eye-roll-worthy weirdness. show more

    The film is surprisingly deft and entertains at both the adult and juvenile levels. If something in Guardians catches your eye, trust your gizzard. show more

    The movie is beautiful but, for one unfamiliar with the source material, confusing. I needed an owl scorecard. show more

    The script is merely serviceable and too reminiscent of similar fantasy tales. But kids will instantly relate to the gentle Soren, while watching wide-eyed as he faces each challenge. show more

    Stephen Farber The Hollywood Reporter

    This picture sometimes rivals "Avatar" in its spectacular landscapes and thrilling flying sequences, but of course it won't come anywhere near those megagrosses, and it's too scary to be wholeheartedly embraced by children. show more

    A gorgeously animated combat fantasy - "The Lord of the Rings" meets "Happy Feet." show more

    The movie is still a mess, stumbling from comic-relief scenes that aren't funny to a job-training interlude in which we learn that, among other things, owls make excellent . . . blacksmiths? show more

    And the action? It's especially hard to determine who's fighting whom in "Legends," because, well, because they are a bunch of owls. show more

    THIS MOVIE WAS HORRIBLE...MY 7 YR OLD GRAND-DAUGHTER DIDN'T WANT TO WALK OUT BECAUSE SHE WAS SO SURE SOMETHING WAS GOING TO HAPPEN AND BE WORTH STAYING . THIS MOVIE HAD NO COLORFUL SCENES, TOO MANY SCENES OF VIOLENCE, NO CLEAR MESSAGE OR MORAL TO THIS STORY...MAYBE A MAL-ADJUSTED BOY WITH A STRONG VIOLENT GENE WOULD LOVE THIS USELESS MOVIE.

    I thought this movie was too complicated for a younger viewer.
