Editorial Reviews

“I think I can, I think I can…” The timeless story comes to life in this all-new, feature-length film filled with fun and adventure! When Little Engine (Alyson Stoner, Cheaper by the Dozen) must leave Dreamland to deliver toys into the real world, she sets her fears aside and learns that with a little determination and courage, anything is possible. Featuring an all-star cast, including Whoopi Goldberg (The View), Jamie Lee Curtis (Freaky Friday), Corbin Bleu (High School Musical) and Brenda Song (The Suite Life of Zack and Cody), this “fun family film” (Francine Brokaw, Los Angeles Family Magazine) is one you’ll enjoy again and again.

Format: DVD
This is my 3.5 year old's favorite book in the whole world. He has even memorized portions of it. When I saw there was a new movie coming out, I grabbed it as soon as I could. He was ecstatic. At first he was curious about the story and the personified engines and water-tower. It was all going well until the scary "bad dream" engine came along. Before I knew it, my son was completely in tears and was so afraid of what was going to happen to the sweet little blue engine and the little boy. I get the fact that if you're going to create a full-length movie from a fairly brief children's story that it has to have some plot to it. My problem with this movie is that this book is favored by YOUNG children who are oftentimes easily scared and while most of this movie is fairly sweet and innocent, just that one part with the big, scary, mean train was enough to poison my son's whole experience. If you have an older child who likes trains or a younger child who is not quite so sensitive, this is probably a great movie, but if your child is at all sensitive, DO NOT buy this film. Positives: beautifully animated, bright colors, cheerful voice-overs.

My 2.5 yr old son who is addicted to trains loves this movie. There is a scary bad guy that I think is bothering him, but overall it's a good movie for kids that are into trains. My favorite character is the caboose voiced by the guy from "Rules of Engagement". He's hilarious!! Jamie Lee Curtis was a good fit for the clown and Whoopi is good as the tower too. I don't know the younger voices, but it appears they are all rather famous too. Would have been better if some of the trains has names instead of just being called "Freight Train" etc. Like Rusty had a name...but oh well. Nice to see some of the proceeds go to a good cause. And of course, it's a great message for kids. Gotta wonder about the "mushroom forest" though, what was going on when the writers put that in hmmm?? Anyway, overall a good family flick!!

LIKES

- Wonderful animation, great textures
- Beautiful colorful landscapes
- A kinetic and interesting dream world
- A sweet and slightly cheesy children's story for the first 3/4 of the movie
- Interesting and exciting action sequences
- Good vs bad, good wins
- Bully vs victim, victim fights back (verbally) and wins
- Interesting characters and good voice acting

DISLIKES

- They overdid it when making the nightmare train. He's freaky and scary. My 3 year old watches the movie and at first was a little anxious but seems fine now. He has a creepy scary appearance, voice, and actions.

I'd love it if the bad guy was bad rather than creepy and evil, but I can't really say it's a problem because my son loves this movie.

My 3 yr old grandson, who is addicted to trains, loves this movie. He loves the bright colors and awesome animation. I love how the voices of Jamie Lee Curtis as a clown and Whoopi as the tower were used. Great movie that moves along for young and adult.
I also love that part of the proceeds from the ticket sales went to benefit a charity... and 50 cents from the sale of every DVD also go to help them. So not only are you purchasing a great movie, but you're also helping a good cause. And the theme of this movie is perfect for kids everywhere: "I think I can!"
I received this for a discounted price for an honest and unbiased review.

Too scary for a toddler! The movie doesn't follow the story book as much as I thought. You wouldn't really use "scary" to describe the story "the little engine that could" but that's what this movie is. A large portion of the movie is scary and the scenes are dark. It's like the writers didn't consider that the main audience would be toddlers or little children. Even the music that goes with the dark and scary parts are really gloom and doom. Not the cutest movie for little children. The "bullies" in the story were not my favorite story line either. I wouldn't have shown it to my toddler had I known it was this scary. Too bad since "The Little Engine That Could" story book is a timeless classic. Very disappointed.

My 3 year old son LOVES this movie! It's really cute, but my only complaint is the "Nightmare Train". It's REALLY scary. I was afraid it would give him nightmares, but thankfully it doesn't. I just comment to my son that the Nightmare train is not a nice train and it needs a time out. Now my son just says "look mommy that's the mean train - he needs a time out." Phew... problem solved. I would definitely expect the train to bother a lot of kids though! If your child is really sensitive to these types of these things then I'd probably skip this movie.

I really wish I hadn't let my kids watch this movie. My 3-yr-old has never cried like that at a movie and my 6-year-old keeps talking about the "night train" and how scared he is now and that we need to tell the people at the library about this so they know this scary thing is in their movie. Most kids who are interested in seeing this movie will be Thomas Tank-engine aged which is pretty darn young. Kids at this age still can't distinguish well enough between fantasy and reality, so I don't believe it's a good idea to show them such frightening images.
