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.
