The silent Sandman fights for good in the animated fantasy "Rise of the Guardians."

About this Article

"Rise of the Guardians" comes crammed with a smorgasbord of fantastic images, marvelously mounted in eye-popping 3-D: kazillions of Easter eggs scramble around on adorable little legs. An army of cute fairies collects children's teeth. This action-packed tale never bores, but never achieves the same level of emotions as a Pixar animated film, which clearly this DreamWorks release emulates.
