The Polar Express - Movie Synopsis & Plot
The Academy Award-winning team of Tom Hanks and director Robert Zemeckis (Forrest Gump, Cast Away) reunite for The Polar Express, an inspiring adventure based on the beloved children's book by Chris Van Allsburg. When a doubting young boy takes an extraordinary train ride to the North Pole, he embarks on a journey of self-discovery that shows him that the wonder of life never fades for those who believe.
To kick things off, this review isn't about how children will like "The Polar Express." Sure, while adults may find it simple, boring and downright creepy, some children will find "The Polar Express" entertaining, or at least awe-inspiring, as a magical train journeys into the north pole. Unfortunately, I am not a child, and you probably aren't either - let's just say that after watching "The Polar Express" you'll want to stick in a copy of "Christmas Vacation" just to get your brain functioning again.
