Here’s the good news: J.J. Abrams and his writing team haven’t dropped the ball. This sequel to their 2009 reboot of "Star Trek" is lively, well-made popcorn entertainment.

Too many films aimed at children lack a sense of wonder, which is one reason I like 'Rise of the Guardians.' Drawing on the mythology devised by author William Joyce in his series of books 'The Guardians of Childhood,' the movie introduces us to the figures that figure so importantly in almost every child’s existence: the Sandman, the Tooth Fairy, the Easter Bunny, and Santa Claus.

Alex Kurtzman has an imposing list of writing and producing credits, mostly with his partner Roberto Orci, including such commercial hits as the 'Transformers' movies, the reboot of 'Star Trek', and 'Mission: Impossible III'… but for his directing debut (written with Orci and Jody Lambert) he has chosen an intimate story about a uniquely dysfunctional family, inspired by incidents in his own life.

Judging by the evidence, it isn’t easy making a good romantic comedy, even if it has a high-concept premise like this one: two best friends (Chris Pine and Tom Hardy) who put their lives on the line as CIA operatives fall in love, quite by chance, with the same woman (Reese Witherspoon). This unforeseen rivalry escalates to the point that they summon all the technology (and manpower) at their command to engage in a massive game of one-upmanship, while the woman in question remains blissfully unaware of what’s going on.
