The story of an old miser who hates Christmas and loves money who gets a chance to get the Christmas Spirit when his old partner
comes to visit him one Christmas eve to show him how wrong he was all this time.
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.
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.
ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+ HITS):
+ STORY (One of the closet versions I've seen yet.)
+ CAST (The cast does an amazing job.)
+ ATMOSPHERE (The atmosphere works well.)
+ EFFECTS (The effects are amazing.)
ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):
- SLOW (Like many of the adaptations it's a tad slow at times.)
- FAN BASED (If you aren't big on this story, then this isn't for you.)
