This is an excellent movie that everyone will enjoy from children to adults. The 3-D is a great feature, but if you want to watch the original 2-D version it has that included for you too. Great movie that you will watch over and over again and I highly recommend.

NOT A 3D BLU-RAY DISK

by A customer on 12/26/2010

Don't confuse this disk with the more expensive disk that works with 3D TVs. This is a 3D movie with green and red lens paper glasses to watch the show- just like Friday the 13th part 3 in 3D back in 1988. We watched 2 minutes of it and will regift it the first chance we get! Ran out to Best Buy to get the correct version. Read More

Editors Note
Note Director Robert Zemeckis revolutionized the art of animated film in 1998's WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT by dropping cartoon characters into the same frame with flesh-and-blood actors. In THE POLAR EXPRESS, live action and animation have merged seamlessly, resulting in sparkling super-realism. A landmark technique Zemeckis and his Sony Pictures Imageworks team call "Performance Capture" perfectly suits the tenor of this wondrous children's Christmas story by Chris Van Allsburg. A disillusioned little boy, just old enough to doubt the existence of Santa Claus, has the adventure of a lifetime one fateful Christmas Eve. Clad in his pajamas, he climbs aboard a magic train to the North Pole, driven by a kindly train conductor (voiced by Tom Hanks who starred in both of Zemeckis's Academy-Award winning films FORREST GUMP and CASTAWAY). Among myriad jaw-dropping moments, the train plummets brakeless through crystalline mountains in a simulated roller coaster ride. Going off the rails, skidding sideways, and snaking violently across a frozen lake, the train arrives at the North Pole (a vast, glowing city of brick buildings). At that moment, the car carrying the kids detaches and they're sent tumbling down never-ending chutes and slides until they land in the middle of Santa's Workshop. With its fascinating tale and impressive technical frolics, THE POLAR EXPRESS is destined to become both a holiday classic and a new turning point in the art of animated cinema.
