Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole (2010) Review

Just got back from watching the movie Legend of the Guardians. Thanks to MSN for being my sponsor. :)

A young barn owl by the name of Soren together with his younger sister, Eglantine, loves the legend of the guardians. However, their older brother, Kludd, thinks the legend is a waste of time and is nothing but a myth.
One night, while Soren and Kludd were branching for learning to fly, they fell to the ground. The Pure Ones clan nabbed them and brought them back to the headquarters. There, they were enslaved but because Soren befriended an Elf Owl, Gylfie, he was thrown to be with her to get the lowliest of jobs which is a picker. Kludd, though, was sent to be trained as a soldier, a Tyto. The ruler of the Pure Ones Metalbeak along with Nyra his mate.

As pickers, they are moon-blinked (a hypnotic state to get obedience from the owls) before set to work. Gylfie and Soren saw through their plan and did not fall prey to it. However, they were discovered by Grimble who leads the pickers and were led away.
Thinking that they were about to receive a death sentence, they were surprised that Grimble's plan was actually to teach Soren and Gylfie to fly so that they could escape and find the Guardians of Ga'Hoole to stop the Pure Ones.

They were soon found out by Nyra and a fight between Nyra and Grimble ensued. Soren urged Kludd to join them but Kludd feels that he's already home.
Therefore, Soren and Gylfie made their great escape and an incredible journey in finding the Guardians of Ga'Hoole.

The story is entertaining enough to keep my attention yet lacks the pizazz for me to call it a great movie. It's all too go with the flow and not enough excitement, adventure, and unpredictable element.
No matter, I believe it deserves 3.5 stars out of 5.
