When a fire breaks out on the Island of Sodor, two new firefighting engines – Flynn and Belle – join Thomas and Percy to save the day! When Thomas starts spending all his time with Sodor’s newest heroes, Percy is left feeling alone.

But Percy doesn’t know that he is part of Diesel 10’s master plan to take over the Sodor Steamworks. Can Percy lead the Steam Team to reclaim the Steamworks or will the Diesels make it their new home? It’s full steam ahead to sure-fire excitement in this all-new movie from Thomas & Friends™!

4.0 out of 5 stars A bit scary for the younger viewers September 10, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Sinister April 8, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Not scary to me" September 20, 2011
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Full of terrible concepts January 8, 2012
My 3 yo son loves his toy diesel engines, he doesn't want to perceive of them as evil and deceptive. He's never been disturbed by a movie before and yet he was by this one; he asked me to turn it off. It's ridiculous anybody thought this was a good story for young children. For young children something negative may be portrayed as a "lesson" to learn but in seeing that behavior in the first place a toddler-age child will emulate it so I don't want my kid seeing examples of evil and in this case in this film, potentially murderous (the fire) behavior AT ALL. At 3 years old he doesn't need to know that exists. When he's mature enough to filter it and understand it as he should THEN he can watch it. In general I really don't like the Thomas the Tank Engine stories. They're so weirdly negative.

1.0 out of 5 stars More like "Whining Percy and Bully Diesels" September 12, 2011
I've only bought two of the newer computer generated Thomas DVDs, and while the animation is absolutely fantastic, with realistic train motion and details, this particular story left a lot to be desired.
This is NOT for kids 3 and is simply too scary, the characters are too one sided (Percy is particularly annoying with his whining that nobody is paying attention to him) and the climax is a letdown.
There are really only 3 characters that get any lines...Diesel 10, Percy, and Thomas. The start of the DVD is like a long commercial for two new firefighting characters...a water spouting steam engine named Belle, and a fire truck that has both regular tires for the road and railroad wheels for riding on the tracks. That little story takes a good 20 minutes of the 55 minute running time, and there are no diesels to be seen while Percy whines that Thomas is too busy showing the new engine around the island. What a sucky baby.
My son and I were disappointed that our other favourite engines...Henry, Gordon, James etc. had mere cameo appearances as they raced by on other tracks. Edward was nowhere to be seen, Toby showed up in the final minutes to help the 'steamies' lead their gang-like rumble against the diesels who had taken over the steamworks. I've seen better story lines, and more character interaction in the 5 minute shorts of the original series than in this entire 'movie'. A real shame, as like I said, the animation is absolutely top notch.
This is not a story that kids will like. Make it a rental, or better yet, wait until your local library has it and borrow it for free.

1.0 out of 5 stars Too scary for the 3-year old target market September 11, 2011
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Definitely Different October 13, 2011
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
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!

1.0 out of 5 stars Such a shame September 16, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but can be a bit scary.
It's a good movie, but for some kids it may be a bit scary. My 2 year old didn't like it at first because diesel 10 can be scary and intimidating, but now he loves it.
