Disney's 'A Christmas Carol', a multi-sensory thrill ride re-envisioned by Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Robert Zemeckis (Forrest Gump, Back to the Future, The Polar Express, Beowulf), captures the fantastical essence of the classic Dickens tale in a groundbreaking 3-D motion picture event. Ebenezer Scrooge (Jim Carrey) begins the Christmas holiday with his usual miserly contempt, barking at his faithful clerk (Gary Oldman) and his cheery nephew (Colin Firth). 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.

Disney's 'A Christmas Carol', based on the classic Dickens' tale, is re-envisioned by Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Robert Zemeckis in a groundbreaking 3-D motion picture event starring Jim Carrey, Gary Oldman, Bob Hoskins and Robin Wright Penn.

 Excellence in CGI

| | See all andersupton's reviews (8)

This is some of the BEST CGI animation I've ever seen. Even ont he big screen it looks flawless, as if live action instead of cartoon. This is going to rock on Blu Ray!

 Not for very young children

| | See all ClarkeWGriswold's reviews (1)

I can't say that this is a bad movie but just that it does not add anything to the countless other Christmas Carol movies. It is also very scary for very young children (though I must admit to not noticing it was PG rated). It's not a patch on The Muppets Christmas Carol which is a film I can watch over and over.

Zemeckis' earlier The Polar Express is also far better in my opinion as it has far more Christmas charm.

'jim carrey' joins up with 'disney' to bring us a new-version of 'dicken's' age old classic.
it tells the tale of 'ebenezer scrooge' who thrives on his own misery and seems to enjoy spreading the feeling around.
christmas is coming, 'ebenezer' is about to get a visit from ghosts of christmas 'present' 'past' and 'future' it is a truly disturbing expierience for him, will he take the lessons learnt on board and find the spirit he once possessed ?
it's 'disney' as allways -a family film for all, though it little scary at times.
i believe it would be fair tlo say that some of the earlier presentations of the film were a little better than this version, however the film does stick to the 'dicken's' story-line and is definately worth adding to your collection.

 Darkest Version Yet

| | See all HadesLair's reviews (15)

I have seen many versions of this story told from the original black and white film to the first colour film and of course to the adaptations made by The Muppets and Disneys Scrooge McDuck. A classic tale and with Jim Carreys talent of playing multiple people from Scrooge to all the 3 Ghosts you know that your in for a treat.

To summarise the film its starts off the way youd expect it to introducing Scrooge as the Unhappy Christmas hating man and wishes that the occasion would never come around.

One night a visit from his late partner Jacob Marley warns him that if he doesnt change his ways he will be doomed to suffer the same fate as himself

3 spirits shall appear to show Scrooges
Past
Present and Future
as each ghost passes the consequences get darker and darker till the point of where you meet the last ghost who is the scariest of all

This also leading to why this film should of had a higher rating as a lot of these scenes could be frightening for kids. HIGH BUDGET SPECIAL EFFECTS make it worth seeing once. However the reason I gave it a four star rating is because its the same story told over again and there is not much new material you can put into a classic that has been made over and over in the past.
