My son is 3 and normally loves the Thomas movies (Misty Island, Hero of the Rails), but this movie was a bit scary for him. I think it's Diesel 10 and his sparking claw that really scared him. I had to turn it off and try it again later. We eventually got through it, but he doesn't want to watch it again (unlike Misty Island and Hero of the Rails which we've seen a lot). The quality was really good, but it was a bit darker than the other movies. If you have a 2-3 year old, you may want to wait until their older.

I have a 3.5 year old and I was worried after seeing the reviews on here that the movie would be too scary for my son. We watched the movie and there wasn't a time he wanted to turn it off. This has been the case with some children movies he has seen on TV. I wanted to write this review for those parents that were put off by some of the other reviews. There was a darker tone than Misty Island Rescue, but I thought it was a theme my son could grasp.

My two year old son is OBSESSED with all things Thomas. And he is terrified of this film. It's so sinister and creepy, and very dark. He hides under the chair in the corner, or he runs to his father or me and buries his face into our chests and cries when the diesel engines appear. And Percy is really sad in it a lot, which upsets him very much. He becomes devastated when Percy cries in the film. Percy is normally so upbeat, and he becomes a very depressed little engine. The music and mood is so dark and disturbing, and we really don't recommend it at all. It looses the innocence that is Thomas & His Friends.

I must say I was incredibly surprised with the "intensity" of Day of the Diesels and it's slightly evil aura. However, I think it was a welcome change to the usual light-hearted Thomas and Friends episodes. I don't think very young children should watch it without an adult, especially if they are used to the nothing-bad-ever-happens-in-Sodor Thomas episodes. My 2-year-old son was slightly freaked out even though he watches movies about robots and likes scary stuff in general, but upon seeing the movie the second time he actually enjoyed it. He just needed to know that everything would be OK even with a fire and what-not. So all in all, I would recommend this movie if for no other reason than that it is a refreshing approach to the same old Thomas does something wrong, Sir Topham hat is very "cross", and Thomas proceeds to fix his misnomer. Happy watching!

We were really let down by this. After watching either Hero of the Rails or Misty Island on an almost daily basis, we were all ready for DOTD to arrive. Both my three and two year olds were scared by the fires and by Diesel 10. They liked Belle and Flynn, but that's it. Percy is ridiculous in this movie and we had to explain why he was acting like a wanker. And then we have to explain being devious and lying and tricking one another - all conversations we had zero interest in having with the kids at their age.

Such a shame because we're all such fans of the Thomas line.

My son loves everything Thomas the Train, but this video is just too scary. He much prefers Misty Island, Hero of the Rails, etc. I hope this isn't a sign of things to come for the Thomas franchise.

I was concerned when I read some of the negative reviews of this new Thomas video, but my 3 1/2 year old loves Thomas, and he especially loved "Misty Island" as a Blu-ray on my large-screen television, so I figured I'd get this. I was far more than pleasantly surprised, I was delighted by this short movie. In fact, I'm sure that writer Sharon Miller knew she was taking a big step with the story.

To summarize, Percy feels left out because he doesn't think that Thomas has enough time for him. Diesel (whom Thomas saved in "Misty Island") verbally seduces Percy to come to the Dieselworks and meet Diesel-10, who will be his friend. Percy is made to feel welcomed by the diesels, who desperately need a new Dieselworks (their's is old and dirty). The diesels, with Diesel-10 as their ringleader, get Percy to bring Kevin the crane over, and then they get Percy to bring Thomas to the dieselworks, where he is held hostage. Percy is then asked to bring the diesels to the Steamworks, which they take over and destroy. What will happen in the end?

The movie makes very important points about knowing who your real friends are, and that some people will make believe they are your friend, but will trick you in the end. Diesel-10's methods are in fact the same as leaders of gangs and other harmful groups; they look for children who don't have friends and want to belong to serve their own agendas. Diesel-10 reminded me of Fagan in "Oliver Twist." My son certainly understood this, as he told me the story in his own words just today. He has seen this movie over and over, and I am thrilled that this important life lesson has made such a huge impression on him.

My 4 year old is obsessed with this movie! We have a bunch of other Thomas & Friends DVDs but this one is his favorite. I have read a few reviews on it and people have said it is scary, but my 3 and 4 year old love it. I guess it could be a little scary to young kids because the Diesel trains are portrayed as bad guys and there is that scary music in the background, but that's about it. The DVD is a movie so it is not a bunch of short episodes either which makes it fun to watch.

The movie is about Percy feeling left out and joining the Diesel trains at the Dieselworks. They make him feel special and convince him to help him take over the Sodor Steamworks. It is a great lesson for kids that they shouldn't hang out with the bad kids just for attention or because they feel left out. The Diesels were actually using Percy and trying to make Percy turn against his true friends. Most of the other Thomas movies feature little lessons or troubles, and this movie really has a plot to it! We were routing for Percy to realize Thomas was really his friend! The other awesome thing about this movie is the two new firefighting engines - Flynn and Belle are in it and they of course have a fire to put out! Then there is Kevin the crane in the movie that was neat too. So if your kids are like mine and like trains, trucks (cranes), and fire engines then this movie will surely be a hit!
