Movie Reviews

Unique, Well-Animated Christmas Carol
William M. Vaughan | Texas, U.S.A. | 03/17/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The 3D rendering and animation in this version of "A Christmas Carol" are excellent. The snow seems so real you can almost feel it! The characters and objects in the scenes are obviously computer-generated "3D" graphics, but they look so good and move so well that no undue attention is drawn to them.

The characters are animated animals, and the script has been redone uniquely, but the names and the general story line are followed closely enough to make it seem as if this were a retelling of the classic story, yet a new movie which could stand on its own merits.

Here are a few examples of animals substituted for the classic characters: Scrooge and his nephew are skunks; Cratchit and family are rabbits; Jacob Marley is a grasshopper, and The Ghost of Christmas Past is a stork, I think.

The jewel case cover is a snowglobe, too!"
