A new twist on "A Christmas Carol" with Jim Carrey in several roles...

From an artistic viewpoint, the new Robert Zemeckis film from the man who gave us THE POLAR EXPRESS, is another of his animated features using the motion picture capture technique that allows the actors to play several roles. The cinematography is exceptionally well done.

JIM CARREY, as miserly Ebenizer Scrooge, looks nothing like his real self. He's a perfect Scrooge, using his voice and mannerisms to great effect, never overplaying the role as you might expect he would.

The visit from three spirits is more frightening than usual, since Zemeckis decided to throw everything he could into startling special effects--sometimes with very gruesome results. The sight of Marley's Ghost with a flapping jaw that has to be realigned by Marley is just one of the "extra" touches. Some of the "spirit" scenes are too intense for small children, more likely to frighten them than anything else.

There are times when the story remains very faithful to the Dickens book, sometimes even word for word. But when Zemeckis decides to show off that the camera can do with flying aerial scenes zooming over Victorian London, it begins to stray a bit. Biggest stray is a chase scene that has a miniature Scrooge going through drain pipes to escape an oncoming coach and horses trying to run him down.

The lovely score by Alan Silvestri blends perfectly with the on screen action and includes a number of traditional Christmas favorites. GARY OLDMAN and COLIN FIRTH do well in key supporting roles but it's really Carrey's show all the way. He plays several main characters with great skill.

Not quite as festive as you might expect, it's a darker version of Scrooge, handsomely executed so that many of the scenes look like Victorian illustrations from the novel.

Warning: This is not a child's version of the tale. Parents should be advised that some of the content is too gruesome for young kids.

Can you tell better?

A family movie, which does not lose its essence, but is shot in a spectacular way. Tells you what to tell It transmits what you owe. But it also does it in a beautiful way that gets you more into the story and you enjoy the staging.

The truth is that I had a great time watching the plans he makes. I think it's the director who knows best how to position the camera. But not only to make a beautiful shot. It is that he uses it to tell you the story. Others would make a series of loose planes, close-ups and details. He tells it in a masterly way.

The film has its emotion, it does not lack and when he has seen my niece has not been bored, he liked it a lot. That means it has not lost essence.

It has a spectacular picture. It's not always like that in cartoon films. The setting is great. It gets you into that much, it's very well created.

As a director, I think there are too many words. Entertaining, fun, exciting.

To put it to children and adults and to enjoy.

An excellent animation of a classic story

A very greedy, self-centered and rude old man is about to be visited in the Christmas eve by three Christmas spirits which will try to change his miserable life, offering a last change for salvation.

A classic and very popular story of Charles Dickens transformed into a Disney animation, with Jim Carrey interpreting the main character is definitely a recipe for success, as this movie will prove. Very well animated, dark but also joyful when it was required, this movie tells how not to be in life by flashing the life of an old man through his eyes, in an attempt to make him understand his mistakes and correct his inappropriate attitude. It uses Christmas as the perfect opportunity to tell its story and it does it flawlessly, according to the original story. It's emotional, full of Christmas spirit and has a lot to learn from its plot. A clear recommendation from me, especially during the winter holidays.
