  • I watch this movie a couple times every Christmas. The animation, music and story are wonderfully great. A true classic, one of the best, thank-you Tom Hanks.
  • Masterpiece in motion capture computer animated film making! This is a classic I have seen several times during the Christmas holidays. Tom Hanks is exceptional playing five different animated roles of the conductor, Santa Claus, the father, the ghost drifter, and the narrator. The computer animation and music are first rate. The storyline is original and captivating. You can connect with the characters in this film. You actually feel as you are on this fantastic and magical train ride to the North Pole. Brilliant script from start to finish. Phenomenal storytelling!
  • excellent... " See is believing"
  • Thank you Mr. Zemeckis and Tom Hanks and everyone else. Thank you so much. (and to think it is rated "G," way to go)
  • I had this DVD bought for me from my mom & dad and I watch it most nights. My favorite bit is when Billy & the girl singing.
  • incredible special effects and animation. looks real. a bit slow though. nice plot however.
  • Amazing !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! One of the Best Films Ever!
  • i did not like this movie at all. it was a cheesy and totally unrealistic storyline, even if it was just a dream (not really). The only part i enjoyed was when the train was flying ovet the ice.
  • Bought the DVD a year after the movie was released. I`m 70 and love trains. Lots of hype but OK graphics and a decent kid`s story. It wasn`t a box office smash that was expected by the studio but everyone tried awful hard and it will be a classic for years to come. I expect to see it on TV soon as a blockbuster Sunday night movie for kids, along with "A Christmas Carol", "Miracle on 42nd Street" and "Its a Wonderful Life". Briefly, a "Boy-Kid" movie for adults and good for kids too. Kind of scary for the "under 6" though. Highly recommended for the 8-10 set.
