With ten days left until Christmas and the film still in theatres, it’s certainly not to late to go see director Robert Zemeckis’ excellent adaptation of Charles Dickens classic masterpiece, A Christmas Carol. Here’s a link to our reviews from November 6th. Our consensus was:
“A stunning new achievement from Robert Zemeckis and ImageMoversDigital. This is a visually amazing, close adaptation of Charles Dicken’s famous book. See it – in 3D or IMAX if you can. **** (Out of 4)”
Like Zemeckis’ previous film, The Polar Express – also criminally underrated – this one will go down as one of my favourite Christmas films. If you haven’t already, then go see this film as soon as you can. It truly is a darkly wonderful and hauntingly beautiful adaptation of Dickens’ classic story.
As Tiny Tim astutely observes, and Andrea Bocelli so beautifully sings over the closing credits, “God bless us everyone!”
