Movie Review: Polar Express, The


My Rating: 4Stars

This evening I went to see the movie “The Polar Express” at Broadway Cinema, Olympian Plaza. Another one of the movies from my Must See Movies list.

In a single word “Amazing”.

Amazing acting by Tom Hanks. Amazing animation. Although, the movie’s story line is a bit simple, for someone who enjoy CG (Computer Graphics), this is definitely a movie to keep in ones collection when it comes out on DVD.

The many characters that Tom Hanks played in the movie are all animated using direct motion mapping. Where Hanks wears a suite with placement markers and the computer scans and monitors every facial and body movements translating this back to computer models for the characters. This is definitely a revolution in movie making. It also showcases Hanks incredible acting (role playing).
