We really enjoyed this film, I have never taken TP to the cinema before because he doesn’t really have a very good attention span, so ave always thought he’d either leave half way through, or disrupt the other cinemagoers.  Today I didn’t hear a sound from him he sat still eyes glued to the screen for the whole movie. However there were some scenes in the film that unsettled TP, but they didn’t scare or upset him, It seemed to be just the right balance of exciting and fun. Also I don’t think it worried him too much as he asked to watch the DVD as soon as we got home.

This film should be part of every young Thomas fan’s DVD collection.
