A Christmas Carol
Animation • PG • 2009 • 1 hr 34 min
Great story to tell children. True depth and nuance to these topics. Also great usage of dark tone that lacks in today's children movies.
Fun and creepy adaptation that stays very close to the book
Mo-cap animation may be off-putting at times, but the story still holds up.
Best version of a Christmas Carol in my opinion, I remember the lighting of London had this as a theme the year it was released
The Dickens' book is very dear to me, and this film depicts it pretty accurately. The aesthetics is incredible, just like the message behind
I'm a book purist for this classic. But Zemeckis hit it out of the park with this animation. The tone changes - macabre and jovially.
I don’t know about others but I personally find this quite good movie
I used to not like this movie as a kid. They made it scary, especially the future scene. But I’ve grown wiser, and now it’s my fav.
This might be the definitive film version of the story. It possesses the imagination that resides so deeply in the book.
The live-action are better, but this is a little less frightening for the kiddos and still a classic
