All Aboard !
I know I'm a little late to the party, but I finally saw The Polar Express. What a visual treat!! I would love to see this in IMAX 3D someday. The story was fine, being so classic, it will be a perennial favorite for years. The animation was very cool, there were times when I forgot it wasn't real. The North Pole was a little wacky, all that bounding and flipping around. I really liked the depiction of Santa, he was the man in charge. The train crew was great comic relief, there were intense moments when it was needed. A good ride, bravo Mr. Zemeckis!
