fantastic & magical

Reviewer: louDate: 2006-12-29

what a fantastic film for children & adults to see before Xmas to enhance the magic of Father Christmas. A superbly animated film that I would watch over and over again with my children who also loved it. It was simple enough for my 4 year to watch and understand more so than Santa Claus films.

This is a lovely perfect, Christmas film, I have watched it many times and it\'s still as good as ever. Tom Hanks characters are superb and the story is exciting as well as moving. This is just as great for adults as well as children and especially good seen on the IMAX Screen
