Realising the guardians were in danger Soren flew to battle and fought with Kludd. In the battle Soren saves the guardians to fight back.

legends-of-the-guardiansThe battle between good and evil is a great scene of fighting and has scary parts. Kludd falls into a firey wood – is this the end of him?

It was the end of the war. The very end marked a celebration but who was the winner good or evil?

I really enjoyed this film because the owls looked so real. I hope you enjoy it too.
