Fast & Furious 6
The Hangover Part III
Inside Llewyn Davis
Even when you look past the unnecessary dangers that the dehumanized child characters in "The Polar Express" experience, you're left with a hammered-home theme that says you must believe in a lie to be satisfied on a personal level.
Unnecessary dangers? It's a children's fantasy movie.And believe in a lie? No, just believe in general. The kid questioned everything and everyone. Probably putting "Trust" would've hit home a little better with you.There's plenty to not like about the movie, but this is stretching it.

No, I agree with the critic. There are way too many "car chases" in this movie.Believe in general? Believe in what? Something that is demonstrably false? That is a stupid moral, indeed. Faith is one thing, irrational belief in something that is known to be fake is another.There is no moral virtue in believing in Santa Claus once the curtain has been pulled back. Since that is the point of the boys journey, the entire journey is a waste of time.As far as trust? I think it better to follow Reagan's advice: "Trust, but verify."

Believing in Santa Claus was never what they were talking about or trying to make you believe. What you are supposed to believe in is never stated and is left up to you. The viewer. The movie never asks you to believe in a lie and you don't need to believe one in order to enjoy this movie.

It was all part of the story Cole. Its true to the Children's book and its well-made.
