This movie is very well done. The visuals were very good. It had a nice storyline. What I noticed about just about all the bad reviews for this film is that they either do not like this form of animation or do think it is too scary for there kids. If you liked the animation of the film the "Polar Express" you would probably like this as well. It does have moments when a character is in danger, although it has suspense I would not call it scary, "Beauty and the Beast" is scarier than this. Overall if you like the animation style I would strongly recommend seeing this film in theaters, the 3D is well done and adds to the visuals nicely so try to see it in 3D if you get the chance.
