    I HAVE REVIEWED OVER 400 Christmas MOVIES.

    BEWARE OF BOGUS REVIEWS. SOME REVIEWERS HAVE ONLY ONE REVIEW. WHEN ITS A POSITIVE REVIEW THAT TELLS ME THEY WERE INVOLVED WITH THE PRODUCTION. I HAVE NO AGENDA! I AM HONEST!

    Disney's A Christmas Carol is a 2009 American 3D computer animated motion-capture fantasy film written and directed by Robert Zemeckis. It is an adaptation of the Charles Dickens story of the same name and stars Jim Carrey in a multitude of roles, including Ebenezer Scrooge as a young, middle-aged, and old man, and the three ghosts who haunt Scrooge. The film also features supporting roles done by Gary Oldman, Colin Firth, Bob Hoskins, Robin Wright Penn, and Cary Elwes.

    The film & its visuals and the performances of Carrey and Oldman are great its dark tones will scare smal ones. The 3D film was produced through the process of motion capture, a technique Zemeckis previously used in his films The Polar Express.

    The film was released in Disney Digital 3-D and IMAX 3-D. The film however is one that has been made too many times. THE 3-D effects aside this version offers nothing new. Since most of us do not have 3-D at home then there is no need in purchasing this film. The Best thing about it was the 3-D and watching this in a theater.

    If you want a Great Version of the film then I recommend the 1938 MGM Version in which this version closely follows

    The now quite familiar Charles Dickens novel tells of Ebenezer Scrooge (performed by Jim Carrey), a cold hearted, greedy miser who spreads around the darkness in his soul every chance he gets. One fateful Christmas Eve, he's visited by a succession of ghosts, including that of his former business partner Jacob Marley, who review for him the course of his life, and attempt to show him the error of his ways.

    Obviously, the main reason that this version exists is to exploit motion capture technology for everything that it's worth; time and time again we're taken on dizzying trips through and above the streets of London. It also enables its talented cast to play more than one role: Carrey plays Scrooge at various ages, and also all three of the spirits, Gary Oldman plays Bob Cratchit and Jacob Marley (and Tiny Tim!), Bob Hoskins plays Fezziwig and Old Joe, etc. As a vehicle for the abilities of some top animators, the movie does do its job.

    However, people should be aware that despite the presence of Walt Disney Studios as the producer & distributor, that this is actually somewhat faithful to the source material and gets pretty dark at times. It's NOT the typical Disney feature. The youngest of your kids could easily get scared by Marley's ghost and the Spirit of Christmas Yet to Come.

    Screenwriter / director Robert Zemeckis does show some respect for the source material, but goes seriously astray at times. His version gets rather over the top; those people who appreciate the subtlety of the 1951 film adaptation will be sorely disappointed. We really didn't need a sequence of a tiny Scrooge pursued by demonic horses through London. Zemeckis' film also shortchanges some characters (like Alice, and Mrs. Dilbur) and spends not enough time in "Christmas past".

    Fortunately, the material still resonates. It's still got power and substance and the ability to move ones' heart; not all the extravagance in the world can really take that away.

    "A Christmas Carol" '09 is not likely to be remembered decades from now, like "Scrooge" or even the 1984 TV version. Carrey does a likable, respectable job, but he won't make ANYBODY forget Alastair Sim.

    Still worth a look for lovers of this story.

    Seven out of 10.

    The Bad:

    For some reason, I just didn't like this movie. It's hard to pin down why, since there are so many version of this tale out there and I enjoy almost all of them – why not this one? Perhaps it's the animation? The motion capture technique used should have made the animation more realistic, but really, really didn't. Perhaps it is the fact that I never end up caring for Scrooge, but also didn't like how callously he's treated. Perhaps it's the fact that Jim Carrey (an actor I don't particularly care for) seems to be every single character. Several scenes, especially "chase scenes" drag considerably as well.

    The Good:

    As with any re-telling of this famous tale, there's a fantastic moral wrapped up inside. This movie is also more authentic to the book than most, which was written as a Christmas Ghost Story, not a sweet, touching family story. I like that some of the dialogue is "Old Fashioned" - taken directly from the book.

    The Mom View:

    If I were to pick a version of this story to have my kids watch, it wouldn't be this one. For the youngest, I'd pick the animated Mickey version. Slightly older, and I'd go with Muppets. Older still and I'd pick either the 1999 version starring Patrick Stewart or the 1951 version. So while this isn't horrible, it's kind of mediocre, forgettable, and not worth the effort of finding when there are better versions out there. My overall opinion? Meh.
