My Penny of View : The movie was based on the book series Guardians of Ga'Hoole. Soren was a young owl who was learning how to fly. He loved to listen to his father about the legend of the Guardians of Ga'Hoole who were legendary of owls that were sworn to protect the Kingdom of Ga'Hoole. Soren's brother, Kludd who was jealous of Soren about attention he got. One night, Soren and Kludd were fighting and accidentally pushing each other from a tree branch. Both of them were snatched by The Pure Ones whom leading by the evil Metalbeak. Soren fought against The Pure Ones and he was send to become a picker. Kludd refused to follow Soren and he chose to become a fighter. Soren together with other pickers were brought to "moon blinked”. What will happen to Soren? What is the motive of the evil Metalbeak building up the army? Will Soren escape from The Pure Ones?

Zack Snyder is famous of movie-300. He often uses slow motion in fight scenes in his films. So, let's imagine he transformed the human movement into animations for owls in battles. The owls well equipped just like human to fight in battles. I felt that the owls look alike with the penguins in Happy Feet, maybe because they are produced by the same company but the owls not cute enough that make me love fall for them. Anyway, the 3D effects was awesome, I can see every feathers, raindrops and also fire. Although the movie is an animation but I think young age kids will feel boring and find difficult to understand the story. It lacks of some laughters like Toy Story 3 and How to Train Your Dragon. As usual, the owls with beautiful feathers and white in colour are good guys and those with ugly outlook are bad guys. As conclusion, the movie was owls version of 300. Owl City sing for the soundtrack for the movie-To The Sky. Why Owl City? Maybe because of his name.
