A boy who no longer believes in Santa Claus, hops aboard a steam train headed to the North Pole so he can meet Santa and learn the true meaning of Christmas.

Based on the children's book by author Chris Van Allsburg, Polar Express comes to the big screen in a computer animated movie about the true meaning of Christmas.

Polar Express - Next Stop, North Pole!

Does Santa Claus really exist? Many kids think so, but one young boy no longer believes in jolly old saint Nick. On Christmas Eve, the young boy wakes up to the sound of a steam engine that pulls up oustide his house. The train conductor invites him onboard the Polar Express, a train that takes kids to the North Pole to meet Santa!

Polar Express - Dangerous Stops

The long trip to the North Pole is filled with fun-filled laughs and a few scary adventures. The young boy makes new friends, meets a mysterious hobo who rides on top of the train, and helps the conductor safely guide the train when it flies off its tracks on a frozen lake. When the Polar Express finally arrives at the North Pole, the kids meet Santa Claus and learn valuable lessons about themselves and the magical secrets of the Christmas holiday.

Polar Express - DVD Features

Learn more about the author of the Polar Express book, Chris Van Allsburg (also the writer behind the new flick Zathura), catch Josh Groban singing the Polar Express theme song, Believe and get the goods on how the movie was put together. Also take a test run through the upcoming Polar Express PC game with a free demo.

Polar Express - Bottom Line

Polar Express is a Christmas bust. Not even superstar actor Tom Hanks, who lends his voice to the characters of the young boy, his father, the train conductor, the mysterious hobo, Scrooge and Santa Claus, can save this snooze-fest, which tends to drag from one scene to the next.
