Thanks to the pioneering animation techniques of director Robert 'Back To The Future' Zemeckis, this Yuletide vehicle for Tom Hanks puffs up a visual head of steam. As the gruff conductor on the Polar Express, the digitally rendered Hanks welcomes aboard a young boy who has ceased to believe in Father Christmas... but is willing to come along for the ride. Setting off on a trip to the North Pole, he joins a carriage-full of kids... and a few surprised fellow travellers. All aboard for a latterday Christmas classic.
Director: Robert Zemeckis
