ZEDD'S OPINION:

I think Patrick Stewart does a great job as Scrooge. The CG effects are amazing. One of the closet versions of the tale I've seen to date and very compelling. 9 STARS.

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

I agree with Zedd, although like many adaptations of the story it is slow it still is endearing and I haven't seen a version I hated yet. So 9 STARS as well.
