Having read the book, I was a bit dubious about seeing the movie. So many times, a book I have enjoyed immensely has been spoiled the minute Hollywood gets hold of it.
I'm ecstatic that this is NOT the case with The Polar Express! With beautiful animation, a true to the book story line and great vocal cast, this is worth buying, watching and then watching again. Sit the kids down or view on your own, you won't be disappointed.
