    The movie has an avalanche of eye-popping visual effects, including a bustling Santa's village, nifty "Jimmy Neutron"-type gadgets and "Stars Wars"-like igloo walking robots - and, of course, the requisite heartwarming happy ending.

    The lively visuals, busy story, zippy pace and TV show running time will make this go down very easily with the target moppet audience.
  3. Santa Claus and the Snowman stage a scaled-down "Star Wars"-type battle for the rights to Santa's sleigh on Christmas Eve in the pleasantly goofy, irreverent Santa vs. the Snowman.

    Takes you inside a kingdom you've never seen the likes of before. Not only is it an IMAX film, with all the superlatives (six-story screen, 12,000 seat-rumbling watts of digital sound) this implies, but it's also computer-generated 3D animation.
  5. A strange anomaly. It's both cutting-edge entertainment and primitive precursor of unimagined wonders to come.
  6. This is sweet-natured fun for the very young.
