Legend Of The Guardians (2010)
The siblings: Soren (Jim Sturgess) and Kludd (Ryan Kwanten)
What puts them at odds? After the brothers are abducted by the “Pure Ones” at a young age, Kludd buys into their philosophy and trains as a soldier, while Soren continues to believe in the saintly Guardians of Ga’hoole.
Look, just because they’re surrounded by a whole lot of silly nomenclature doesn’t mean that their sibling rivalry is any less valid. Boiled down to its essence, this owl story sees two brothers choose rival ideologies, with devastating consequences for their family and in particular younger sister Eglantine, who ends up “moon-blinked”. Hmm, maybe we can’t get past the silly names after all. Anyway, she’s reduced to a fugue state and it turns out that Kludd is responsible. Gasp! Will these two ever reconcile? Only if they make a sequel and the apparently-doomed Kludd manages to survive somehow...
