Good visuals overwhelmed by gross misjudgements

"All aboard! "

The Polar Express assumes the status of Christmas Classic from the get-go without even bothering to earn it. With Chris Van Allsburg's short, gorgeously illustrated children's book as its source material, Robert Zemeckis' $165-million CGI extravaganza at first seems like a quaint, if technologically savvy ode to the Christmas spirit from a child's perspective, but it ... read more

Looking at the cover you may think this is another classic of christmas cartoons. But it's more than that. It's magical and so beautiful. And magic is like that. You can't explain how and why. Physics doesn't exist there. It's just magical so everything can happen. Like says in the movie: "Because it's magic. Magic has to be believed. It's the only way it's real". Also looking at the cover you can... read more

'The Polar Express' is one of the best animated movies of all time! It's magical, it's well animated and it's funny! It features Tom Hanks as the voice of 5 characters and the motion of the main character who gets on the Polar Express going to the North Pole, sounds interesting! What a magical movie!

Santa Claus does not exist. Or does he? For one doubting boy (voice of Daryl Sabara and Tom Hanks), an astonishing event occurs. Late on Christmas Eve night, he lies in bed hoping to hear the sound of reindeer bells from Santa's sleigh. When to his surprise, a steam engine's roar and whistle can be heard outside his window. The conductor (voice of Tom Hanks) invites him on board to take an extraordinary journey to the North Pole with many other pajama-clad children. There, he receives an extraordinary gift only those who still believe in Santa can experience.

Movie Reviews (Part 1201-1250) (50 movies items)

" First digital movie with screen capturing and the likeness between the animated conductor and actor Tom Hanks was remarkable at time. The train is also impressive and big and should be a perfect image for the smallest kids. The 3D effects are fast and with good depth and interactive enough to make one feel one is in the movie. The smallest kids will adore it. My three year-old was in ecstasy by it - me not so much. The story is in fact a kiddie version of "A Christmas Carol" about a person who "

"2016/12/23 @home on DVD with Katy, Kendra, and Gram Good enough story, but what was the point? A bunch of crazy stuff happens, and it is entertaining, but what is the lesson? Believe in Santa? Entertaining enough for a Christmas movie."

"DECEMBER 23: Overall, I really enjoy this movie and the story presented, but this recent viewing showed me that I'm not a fan of the CGI used to animate the characters. Most of them looked pretty weird. Still love it."
