For once on my usual catching-up-on-sleep weekends, i had the chance to catch a free movie – Legend of The Guardians. (Courtesy of MSN in providing the tickets to KTheBlogger and he shared it with me! ^^ )
A little background check – The movie is based on the first three books in the Guardians of Ga’Hoole series written by Kathryn Lasky.
The film follows Soren, a young owl enthralled by his father’s epic stories of the Guardians of Ga’Hoole, a mythic band of winged warriors who had fought a great battle to save all of owlkind from the evil Pure Ones.
While Soren dreams of someday joining his heroes, his older brother, Kludd, scoffs at the notion, and yearns to hunt, fly and steal his father’s favor from his younger sibling.
Kludd’s jealousy has terrible consequences–causing both owlets to fall from their treetop home and right into the talons of the Pure Ones. Now it is up to Soren to make a daring escape with the help of other brave young owls.
Together they soar across the sea and through the mist to find the Great Tree, home of the legendary Guardians of Ga’Hoole–Soren’s only hope of defeating the Pure Ones and saving the owl kingdoms.
Throughout the movie, i was totally enthralled by the detailed treatment throughout the movie! Dazzling visuals that sucked me right in!
Oh, and the movie is available in 3D! I would have totally enjoyed it even more if i could watch the flight scenes in 3D! It would just be extremely exhilarating, seriously! Imagine swooping down smoothly while watching your surroundings turning into lines. Ain’t that a good experience digitally?
My Ratings (ranking it from 0-10)
All in all, never regretted spending my usual napping Sundays out for a movie for a change! Perhaps, i should really go out more often than usual!
Once again, thank you MSN & KTheBlogger! =)
