Director Robert Zemeckis revolutionised the art of animated film in 1998's WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT by dropping cartoon characters into the same frame with flesh-and-blood actors. In THE POLAR EXPRESS, live action and animation have merged seamlessly, resulting in sparkling super-realism - a landmark technique Zemeckis and his Sony Pictures Imageworks team call Performance Capture. In the story, a disillusioned little boy--just old enough to doubt the existence of Santa Claus--has the adventure of a lifetime one fateful Christmas Eve. Clad in his pyjamas, he climbs aboard a magic train to the North Pole, driven by a kindly train conductor. Among myriad jaw-dropping moments, the train plummets brakeless through crystalline mountains in a simulated roller coaster ride. Going off the rails, skidding sideways, and snaking violently across a frozen lake, the train arrives at the North Pole (a vast, glowing city of brick buildings). At that moment, the car carrying the kids detaches and they're sent tumbling down never-ending chutes and slides until they land in the middle of Santa's Workshop. With its fascinating tale and impressive technical frolics, THE POLAR EXPRESS is destined to become both a holiday classic and a new turning point in the art of animated cinema.

Original Poster

Defo a kids film. Though I did enjoy it

great movie i enjoyed it more than the kids

Do you get the 3D glasses with this ?

the original dvd movie is great - a real ' believe in Santa' movie - great animation, humour and a hint of darkness too - its our getting into Xmas movie, we watch every December, around 18th - 20th . . . . .
Not sure about this 3D Blu Ray - was this not discussed awhile back on a thread - got mixed reviews. Its def a red/blue glasses 3D - not the newer digital (pretty sure anyway!) J

ave just been checking reviews and they are very mixed - from very bad to very good so dont know what to think. other thing is the 3d version costs way less than the standard bluray version

Sorry for being a bit thick, does that mean you get the 3D disc and a seperate original film disc, (both blu-rays)? Or the 3D one on blu-ray and you also get the original on DVD

Thanks :thumbsup:

According to the information found. The disc has both versions of the film on it.

The Video: Sizing Up the Picture


Following the standard 2-D Blu-ray release of 'The Polar Express' by a year (which itself followed the original HD DVD version by a year), Warner now brings us 'The Polar Express Presented in 3-D.' Packed onto a BD-50 dual-layer disc, we get the re-encoded 2-D version of the film previously released, and a red/blue anaglyph 3-D version. Both are framed at 2.40:1, and presented in 1080p/VC-1 video. (Four pairs of anaglyph 3-D glasses are included in the Blu-ray keepcase.)

This was taken from ]here.

Thanks Adam

Purchased this Blu Ray from Asda as i get discount. However to answer your question..

The Blu Ray has both the 2D & 3D film on it. It included 4 pairs of 3D glasses and also a 2D DVD version as well.

The 3D on this film with the supplied glasses in my opinion was pants. Don't get me wrong there was some good 3D scenes in the film but the strain it put on our eyes with the supplied glasses it gave us a headache after the film.

2D version though is great! i am 26 and love this film and so does the wife. Get rid of the kids and watch it alone.

Thanks Adam

There isn't a post on HUKD I agree with more than this. Thank God you get the 2D version as the 3D one is awful, as Faulknera says some fantastic 3D scenes but in the main vague, ghosting and red/blue flashing on whites (caused by the red/blue supplied 3D glasses) make it a real strain to watch.

Glad I did watch it in 3D, won't be doing so again. I'd have paid this for the blu-ray without any 3D version so I'm still happy :thumbsup:
