The Polar Express

The Polar Express (2004)

Chris Van Allsburg's inspiring children's book is brought to life in this warm-hearted animated tale directed by Robert Zemeckis. A young boy (voiced by both Daryl Sabara and co-executive producer Tom Hanks, who also lends his talents to the role of the conductor) with shaky faith finds it strengthened after he makes his way by train to the North Pole, where he finds reason to believe not only in others, but most importantly in himself.
My Two Cents: Falls somewhere between, and slightly below, 'heartwarming' and/or 'delightful.' Still, it means well. I feel that I missed out on the real experience by not seeing its IMAX presentation.

NetFlix Rank: Liked It
IMDB Rank: 6/10
