The Polar Express is the Christmas heartwarming movie about the power of faith and hope that resonates across cultures and generations because the marvelous movie of the Chris Van Allsburg Christmas masterpiece about one of the impressive enduring mysteries of the universe: Santa Claus! Mystery trumps reason and brings true happiness to the heart! The Polar Express shares with moral themes about the beauty of being generous to others, the power of faith, respect for courage and leadership, and the value of friendship!

I watch this movie a couple times every Christmas. The animation, music and story are wonderfully great. A true classic, one of the best, thank-you Tom Hanks.

Masterpiece in motion capture computer animated film making! This is a classic I have seen several times during the Christmas holidays. Tom Hanks is exceptional playing five different animated roles of the conductor, Santa Claus, the father, the ghost drifter, and the narrator. The computer animation and music are first rate. The storyline is original and captivating. You can connect with the characters in this film. You actually feel as you are on this fantastic and magical train ride to the North Pole. Brilliant script from start to finish. Phenomenal storytelling!

I had this DVD bought for me from my mom & dad and I watch it most nights. My favorite bit is when Billy & the girl singing.
