4.0 out of 5 stars A bit scary for the younger viewers September 10, 2011
By LEBOOT
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.

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

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.

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 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 Full of terrible concepts January 8, 2012
Format:DVD
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 Too scary for the 3-year old target market September 11, 2011
Format:DVD
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars 3 year old loves it, me not so much February 3, 2012
By J. Tsao
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I'm torn on the number of stars to give here. If I'm basing it on the opinion of my 3 1/2 year old son, who is the primary viewer, it would be 5++++, for me, it is more a 2 or a 3. This has become on of my son's favorite movies. He does not find it scary.

Day of the Diesels is one of the newer CG animation movies. My son doesn't seem to notice the difference, but I really like the old school stop animation movies much better.

The story is actually a little odd as well. Percy feels left out so he starts to hang out with the diesels who ultimately end up betraying them. Diesel 10 basically cons Percy and I'm not really a fan of that. In fact, this Diesel 10 has no resemblance to the Diesel 10 first seen in Calling All Engines. In Calling All Engines, Diesel 10 was scary and grumpy, but not at all evil. In this movie Diesel 10 is a slick, slimy con artist. Even more bizarre, after acting like an evil mastermind for the entire movie, Diesel 10 basically whimpers into a corner when Sir Topham Hatt tells him that he has caused confusion. I get that the movie wants to show kids that he is apologetic and contrite, but it just comes off a sudden weird character change.

On the plus side, the songs in the movie are great. There is a modern rock version of the classic Thomas song and a new Day of the Diesels song that's pretty catchy.
