Dynamic visuals and excellent adventure

We saw the cinema release on 3D and the whole family enjoyed it, the kids loved it. The animation and editing are beautiful, sometimes breathtaking, specially the scenes were they are trying to escape (there are few of those). the voice cast is fantastic and the characters are adorable. Be careful though coz your kids will want, really want, a pet owl afterwards. There are few scary moments for the very little ones when the owls get brainwashed. A great movie for the whole family. We will be renting it again
Fell in love with this film, amazing.

This is easily the most beautifully animated film I have ever seen, I’m definitely going to buy the blu-ray. It’s not suitable for very young kids, as it isn’t the usual simple, colourful layout that grabs their attention, and is a little bit dark and violent, but I’d say children from 7 or 8 years and up would love it, and all adults should give it a go!
The owls are so realistic and gorgeous and the story is well told. I watched this as a skeptical adult, but was blown away. Highly recommended.
Beautiful but lacks something

This is one of the most fantastic pieces of animation I have ever seen. The detail is amazing, unfortunately the story is only ok. There is nothing really new here and it does go a little flat in the middle. Worth seeing for it's beauty? For me, yes but if you are not as much into that kind of thing...

This film is brilliant and beautiful. It gives a great appreciation of the beauty and variety of owls and the story itself is interesting and well done by both actors and animators. The scenes of flight are amazing.
Lost in effects!!

Hardly even kept the kids amused.. Skip it!!! Even the overly publicised effects don't save this..
