Guardian Of The Highlands

Hollywood icon Sean Connery (star of seven James Bond films, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade) stars in the thrilling animated tale set in the breathtaking landscape of the actor’s native Scotland, Guardian Of The Highlands, arriving on DVD, digital and on demand April 8 from Cinedigm and Random Media. The film also stars Emmy® nominee Alan Cumming (Spy Kids, “The Good Wife”).

OUR THOUGHTS: I’m a Sean Connery fanatic. I love all things Sean so much I named one of my boys after him but with a different spelling. That’s a story for another day. This cute and entertaining film Guardian of the Highlands was great for Family viewing night. The story had a really cute and intriguing story line. We enjoyed it. Half way through my little guy lost interest but I think it was just cause the story line might of been a bit to complex for him but all and all it was a fine story.

Our Thoughts: When it comes to my boys You mention HOT Wheels and they are already running over to see what it is you have for them. They are obsessed with HOT WHEELS and anything that has to do with Racing. So when I saw this title I knew it was something they’d lvoe to watch and enjoy over and over again. I was right. My boys have watched these dvd’s so many times I swear they are going to wear out our copy’s. They are perfect for boys that love cars and boys that love racing. Best of all they are entertaining so mom and dad can hang out, watch and enjoy them too. We love that they are several episodes all rolled into one dvd and you don’t have to keep getting up to press play or change the channel. Each episode is just as entertaining as the last.  Makes a great gift.
