I didn't expect to like it, but I absolutely LOVED this version of the Christmas Carol. The animation was spectacularly gorgeous! Although I don't feel this appropriate for small children, this film is far less creepy than the Alastair Sims version. Watching it will now be part of our yearly holiday tradition.

This movie was very well done in terms of the animation and the way the story goes. I can understand why people would have a problem with it since it was creepy at times. But it was still very well done and the message of the movie was translated loud and clear.

This was horrid. Lots of better versions. In fact, I can't, offhand, think of a worse one. It's rather strange to compare this version with "The Muppet Christmas Carol." Superficially, this Disney version retains more of the original dialogue. This version adds material, but the Muppet version adds material and even characters. Yet somehow the Muppet version remains true to the spirit of the original, and this one definitely does not. The scenes and staging added to take advantage of 3D effects are annoying and distracting. The "backstory" adds nothing, particularly since this version has removed or modified the original backstory, particularly with regard to the sister, Fanny. The result is to make Scrooge a caricature, and we can't really care whether a caricature reforms or not.

Definitely a "PG" rated movie. Don't know if I'll ever watch it again ; even with the excellent animation . I found it a little creepy at times.

It was a solid movie. Darker than most versions. Great graphics and finally a slight spin on the traditional ending. My 5 year old was too scared to watch after the 1st 15minutes. LOL Yes, It's dark!

This is supposed to be a 'magical' retelling of Charles Dickens' beloved tale- Disney's A Christmas Carol ; a high-flying , heartwarming adventure for the whole family. The animation brings to life the characters with even the fine nuances of physical performance and the story line is fairly true to the common tale. There are a few little twists and omissions which are consistent in most of the previous films ; but they don't take anything from the film , while the new little bits are refreshing. All this being said ; it really is just another take on and venue for the good old " Christmas Carol".

Violence: Extrememe amount of violence , even for an animated film , but especially a Disney production. Parental Guidance is an appropriate rating and I hope adults will consider this before they allow young children to be terrified and perhaps suffer from life long nightmares . ( I'm not kidding! )
