This movie was awesome. I hear my son saying, "I think I can," whenever I ask him to do something. The train is a great role model. It has really taught my son that he can do anything if he will just try. There are a couple of edge of you seat scenes. If your children are really easily frightened, this is probably not the movie for them. There are a couple of bullies and a nightmare train that may be a little much for some youngsters. My son (4), usually easily frightened, got a little worried, but when I explained that everything would be ok, he was fine and made it to the end of the movie. He now wants to watch it over and ove (50 times a day). He understands that even though it is a little creepy for a few minutes, everyone will be ok.
