Rise of the Guardians

If the same amount of time was spent on the writing of this film as was spent on designing the look and feel of the characters, you would have a pretty grand movie. Nicely animated, the story is about Guardians, holiday and magical make-believe characters (like the tough as nails but jolly Santa that looks like he just got out of a Russian prison, or the Australian 6' plus Easter Bunny), that are in charge of fostering hope in children, their struggle against the Boogie Man, and their newest member: the mysterious Jack Frost. The trouble is that despite the fun of many scenes (yeti rule!), the writing was sloppy and focused on a couple of archetypes to make up for it.
