A CHRISTMAS CAROL (Theatrical Release USA 2009)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.5|5.0 Stars ììì

A Christmas Carol
—visually stunning 3-D effects—showcases Robert Zemeckis’ Image Movers studio’s ability to create terrific, highly imaginative animated imagery. The studio maximally exploits special effects. Very little to criticize here and much to be praised. The artistry is terrific; the storyline well portrayed. The film provides entertainment for the adult as well as the child and belongs in the family home video library.
