* SoOkayItsAverage: Despite the drop-dead gorgeous animation of the film, it suffers from the narrative trying to tell an epic story akin to LordOfTheRings in the span of roughly 90 minutes, which ultimately just falls flat and leaves it as more of a ClicheStorm instead, which is probably why it's not remembered much.

* AccidentalAesop: Avenge [[spoiler:your brother's]] death [[murdering a bad peson]] is something justifiable and correct... Wait, what??



* AwesomeArt: The animation is simply beautiful and it's still has some of the best CGI Visuals in any animated movie, just look how beautiful the reallystic backgrounds are, the tons of SceneryPorn, and the really good character design, this is one achievement on make realistic CGI on animated films

* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: A "PG"-rated film by Creator/ZackSnyder (the man who brought you ''Film/ThreeHundred'' and ''Film/{{Watchmen}}'') with [[spoiler:owls clawing and slashing each other apart, characters dying, bats tearing apart owls, impalements...]] And yet, it was aimed to kids. Then again, so were the books the movie adapts.

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: The film was ''not'' well received by fans of the book for it's multitude of changes, like [[spoiler:Kludd and Metalbeak being split into 2 characters]], Nyra showing up despite only appearing in book 4 onwards (due to the film taking the plot of the first 3 books), turning Digger and Twilight into comic relief, several characters from the books missing, or having their species changed, missing key locations from the books, and certain characters being SparedByTheAdaption. [[http://duckyworth.deviantart.com/journal/DT-LOTG-Owls-of-Ga-Hoole-2010-REVISITED-396728950 Duckyworth]] would become one of the most prominent (and vicious) critics towards the film. (Heavy spoiler warning for the first 3 books and the film in the outgoing link.)
