a great Christmas Eve night movie!!
December 12, 2009
This movie rates up there with It's A Wonderful Life and White Christmas. I've watched it 4 times today alone. Yes, I'm a little obsessed with it today, but The Polar Express gives me that warm Christmas Eve feeling no matter what day it is!! It is magical, superbly made and 100% the best!!

Every detail of the beloved children's classic is meticulously reconstructed in the film, with visuals that can only be described as wondrous. Full Review
Claudia Puig
USA Today
Simple and evocative, yet teeming with intriguing visual effects. Full Review
David Rooney
This visually impressive yet emotional frigid fable could perhaps more accurately be tagged "The Bipolar Express." Full Review
Desson Thomson
Washington Post
A truly satisfying holiday picture, the kind everyone can enjoy. Full Review
Duane Byrge
The Hollywood Reporter
A story that soars with breakneck pace but slows in all the tender moments. Visually, this train ride is both majestic and edge-of-your-seat. Full Review
