"War Game is a desperately disappointing animated adaptation of Michael Foreman's excellent children's picture book about the Christmas Truce of 1914. Unfortunately, in the hands of the Snowman team it's all just too nice and safe for the respite to have any power, and the loss of the haunting ending from the book (where the hero's body slowly vanishes under falling snow) in favour of something less upsetting to the kiddies renders it all even more so what: only the beautiful yet quietly devastating closing lines of narration truly work. Terrible performances from many of the voice cast, too. At least at 29 minutes it's brief.
Nice little story

"This film was made in 2001 but never released to the general public until now. Kate Winslet fans will enjoy this, as she is simply brilliant in animated movies - she has such a lovely voice. Get this on DVD if you see it at a good price!"
