A muscular, tattooed Santa (Alec Baldwin) and his fellow guardians require the services of maverick Jack Frost (Chris Pine) to defeat misery guts Pitch Black (Jude Law), a bogeyman who wants to engulf the world in darkness. My children (ages three and five) were transfixed, but this weak DreamWorks animation lacks humour and wonder.
