Will not be my favorite BUT does rank 4 stars!
29 December 2005 | by (Umatilla, FL) – See all my reviews

Not much has been written about the storyline so I won't spoil the mystery. I can say tho', that this movie fills the heart with all that Christmas is. No 'crying happy' ending; but then no 'crying sad' ending either. A very good movie for children and adults who are having trouble 'Believing'. Tom Hanks and Robert Zemeckis have outdone themselves. The graphics are unbelievably realistic. The human characters' animation is as real as if they were flesh and blood. The best part is that, there is no line between what is real and what is computer generated; it's ALL the same! In so many 'Fantasy' movies, computers are the only way to make the fantastic real; 'Polar Express's'animation is able to make you feel that the fantasy is REAL and that the fantastic is really possible and happening right before your eyes. I highly recommend this movie to EVERYONE!
