Young Owl brothers Soren (Sturgess) and Kludd (Kwanten) are abducted and taken to the sinister fortress of St Aegolius, where supposedly long-since defeated evil owl overlord Metalbeak (Edgerton) is secretly raising an army. It is up to Soren to escape and seek out legendary owl-paladins the Guardians Of Ga’hoole, and thereby save all owlkind…
This is unlikely to win Kathryn Lansky’s antipodean owl fantasy any new fans, but even the bemused (and confused) can luxuriate in some grand-scale visual storytelling.
