Story: Disney's A Christmas Carol, a multi-sensory thrill ride re-envisioned by Robert Zemeckis, captures the fantastical essence of the classic Dickens tale in a groundbreaking 3-D motion picture event. Ebenezer Scrooge begins the Christmas holiday with his usual miserly contempt, barking at his faithful clerk and his cheery nephew. But when the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Yet to Come take him on an eye-opening journey revealing truths Old Scrooge is reluctant to face, he must open his heart to undo years of ill will before it's too late. (Walt Disney Pictures)
Rated: PG for scary sequences and images so don’t take your young children because they’ll either freak out or be bored to tears (a cinematic FYI to parents).
Bottom Line: Dazzling 3-D motion capture animation that’ll have you brushing snowflakes off your lap - but with all the bind blowing left-hook visuals they forgot to deliver the emotional knock-out punch. A Christmas story that fails to get you in to the spirit of Christmas?! Bah humbug, indeed!
