Families will not miss out by skipping this movie that offers nothing remotely related to a calm holiday season. From start to finish, the story essentially portrays "soldiers" [guardians - of what...who knows] engaging combat with an enemy, then realizing in conclusion that even the enemy will eventually succumb to sleep. This is the crux of the film.
From the over-sized, unnecessarily loud, glittery/sparkly, stomping, clomping, crunching, pelting that has to be shoved aside for a moment to get to a strange and confusing story line that never allows for thinking but commands the viewer's attention, this "art" is a deeply condescending visual and audio assault. It is not a warm, cozy, memorable holiday film that families will find a moral message in which to build on. An unfortunate waste of time.
