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

The popular novels by Kathryn Lasky films come to life in a brilliant way through Zack Snyder (Watchmen). As pretty intelligent, “Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole” surely captivate anyone interested in complex stories told simply.

Soren (voice of Jim Sturgess) and his older brother Kludde (Ryan Kwanten) were kidnapped and their captors forced them to join an order of elected officials who are willing to fight the guardians Ga’Hoole. Kludde joined the movement, but not Soren taking to their heels in the company of Gylfi (Emily Barclay). Seeing that a war is being prepared, the two new friends can not remain neutral, and in company with some companions they will act to avoid the fate of humanity falls into the wrong wings.

From 2002 to 2008, the American author Kathryn Lasky has published no fewer than 15 books about the legendary exploits of the “Guardians of Ga’Hoole,” winning more than considerable success. When people are waiting for you, Hollywood is never far to suggest a film version. The project to adapt the first three stories were told Zack Snyder, who has managed the feat to translate brilliantly unadaptable comic “Watchmen”. perspex

His first challenge was to get rid of what has been done before. It does not take long to see that feature drink at “Dark Crystal”, “Labyrinth”, “X-Men” and especially “Star Wars” original drawing heavily on a few notable passages. While it is increasingly difficult to lay a completely original screenplay, the director is doing a nice way of mixing old with new to create a new mythology for the whole family, but probably a little too dark and violent for young souls. Even if conflicts, characters and alliances are numerous, it is easy to navigate easily.

The story could have been very wordy and it is in places. This is quite normal at the information needed to convey, some passages more “educational” can make a viewer more cynical sigh. For once, the votes selected (the Jim Sturgess, Helen Mirren, Geoffrey Rush, Hugo Weaving and Anthony LaPaglia others) serve the story and not the other, which may explain the depth given to characters who are often torn dilemmas moral.

Yet the pace is never sacrificed for the benefit of conversations, and when the action breaks, it is hard not be impressed. The beauty of the choreography and plans offered dare propose something new instead of always reheat the soup. The set pieces are numerous, and several easily capture the retina, especially when the hero faces vortex of rain. Especially since the three-dimensional technology is intended spectacular, bringing a degree of tension to the vicissitudes. Although enjoyable, the music is still sometimes a little too sluggish, especially when a cutesy song is heard. As if the young customer he needed this to stay hooked until the end.

Breathtaking in its scope and execution, “Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole” is one of the best events of the year. It’s beautiful, good, upbeat and very entertaining. Hoping a sequel arrives on screens as soon as possible.
