Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole

As pure, high-tech razzle-dazzle, LOTG:TOOG'H boasts some of the best 3D effects ever put on camera. Sad then that the story is such a generic fantasy film mishmash of Harry Potter, The Lord of the Rings, Star Wars and various legends of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table—only with owls instead of people. Soren (Jim Sturgess, Across the Universe) and Kludd (Ryan Kwanten, "True Blood") are fledglings kidnapped by an army of Nazi-like owls. While ruthless Kludd buys into talk of racial purity, Soren escapes and goes in search of the legendary good guys known as the Guardians of Ga'Hoole. FULL REVIEW: Gorgeous but unoriginal fantasy is mostly for the birds by Devin D. O’Leary (9/23/2010). 90 minutes PG.
