  • "The Polar Express" has the quality of a lot of lasting children's entertainment: It's a little creepy. Not creepy in an unpleasant way, but in that sneaky, teasing way that lets you know eerie things could happen. There's a deeper, shivery tone, instead of the mindless jolliness of the usual Christmas movie.

  • Find helpful customer reviews and review ratings for The Polar Express at Amazon.com. Read honest and unbiased product reviews from our users.

  • Parents need to know that, like the book that inspired it, the The Polar Express has wonderful messages about the importance of believing, the value of friendship, respect for leadership and courage, and the beauty of being kind to others. But it's also an adventure, with lots of roller-coaster thrills and some scary characters that might be too intense and frightening for the youngest kids.

  • "The Polar Express" offers incredible visuals and literally takes you on a roller coaster ride to the North Pole on an unforgettable journey that kids of all ages will love. Tom Hanks lends his voice to many characters for a symbolic reason that only adults will be able to understand, but for kids, the magic will still surround this film for them.

  • Parents need to know The Polar Express, by Chris van Allsburg , won the 1986 Caldecott Medal and was adapted for a 2004 film. Its lush drawings of the winter world seen through the eyes of a child complement the quietly elegant story of a boy who takes a magical train ride to the North Pole on Christmas Eve.

  • The Polar Express can't beat numerous other animated films like "The Incredibles" and "The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie", but for whatever heart this film has and takes, it manages to be a heartwarming welcome and heartbreaking goodbye.

  • Polar Express On our way to Bryson it was snowing and everything had snow on it by the time we got there. It was cold when we boraded the train but it was warn on the train.

  • Often, my problem is usually that I'm excited about a film's opening, and my expectations are usually high. In the case of "The Polar Express", my expectations were actually pretty low. Growing up, I would read and reread "The Polar Express", a book written and illustrated by Chris Van Allsburg, every Christmas.

  • Texas State Railroad begins service to the North Pole aboard THE POLAR EXPRESS™ starting on Saturday, November 11, 2017. The magical story comes to life the minute the train departs the Palestine Depot for the journey to the North Pole.
