Been wanting this film on Blu Ray for while, and for the price this is perfect. The Steelbook has good art and the Blu Ray, Not the DVD, is jammed packed with extras that any fan would appreciate. I will say though that a lot of the included features are pretty dated, like the Video Game Trailer. Overall this is a good collection for your library. One Major gripe is there is NO digital copy, and that a huge bummer.
Parents need to know that, like the book that inspired it, the The Polar Express has wonderful messages about the importance of believing, the value of friendship, respect for leadership and courage, and the beauty of being kind to others. But it's also an adventure, with lots of roller-coaster thrills and some scary characters that might be too intense and frightening for the youngest kids. The Express roars, speeds, and skids on its perilous journey to the North Pole. Sometimes out of control, sometimes racing against dangers and obstacles in its path, it's the center of a tale that's suspenseful throughout. The child heroes are frequently in danger -- from falls, getting lost, being left alone on a careening train, and navigating dark, shadowy places facing characters who may wish them harm. Also worth noting: The story focuses on a boy who doubts whether or not there is a Santa.
I like the pictures and the story. I like how they use the children to present the doubts about Christmas and how they clear the doubt to demonstrate the existence of Santa. Is so interesting when they walk Outside on the train following the girl’s ticket or the man and also how the find Santa‘a toy shop. I really liked the movie. The most important of this movie is that you can see it several time and you don’t get bored.
This movie is a family must have! This amazing movie came out when my son was three. We watch it every holiday season. My son who is now 18 asked me to buy it again because he couldn’t find it at home. That look in his eyes remind me of when he was three. Tom Hanks really brings this movie to life. This movie is perfect for all ages.
I know this movie has been out a while but every watching it for the 2nd or 3rd time never gets old. Especially enjoyed sitting down and watching it with my grandson. He stayed glued to the screen for the entire movie. He wanted to know if we could watch it again just before Christmas. LOL.
