    I thought the movie wasn’t extremely boring and pretty scary for a Disney movie. The animations and 3D effects were very good but there was really not much else about the movie that I enjoyed.

    My wife and I saw it twice during the weekend premier. I’m a huge 3D fan and got hyped back in the summer for this movie when Disney’s train tour promotion for ACC rolled into Chicago. A very atmosheric setting, good voice work and a classic story by Dickens. I can’t wait till next year when the new era of digital 3D will be available for folks who appreciate it.
