Oh, bullflop. The purpose of this movie is to make a lot of money by retelling a familiar story with way cool digital special effects.(Although if "Polar Express" and the trailer for this are any example, the picture looks kind of runny, like it's been left out in the rain.)

You want to "find the emotional depth in the classic story"...uh, how about reading the book?
