great for family movie night

I have never read the book. The movie was fantastic. Wonderful for a cartoon. Great graphics and even better voice acting. Great for all ages.


Love the storyline.

not like the book

Much more action than the book. But overall, not a poor adaptation. My kids enjoyed the adventure and wonder of Christmas.

Kid friendly

While I love the book, the movie not so much. But my kids loved it.

Not for me

"The Polar Express" was my favorite book growing up, so I was really excited for this movie to come out. But I wound up being kind of disappointed. I almost wish they would have gone with just standard animation or even live-action for it. The weird hybrid thing didn't grab me. I get what they were going for, and the technology was really experimental and has since been improved on, but it was sort of creepy in my opinion. I think the story is still great, and I think they did a good job of keeping it exciting, and most people will probably like it. But it just wasn't for me because of how much the book meant to me back then.
