Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Very exciting but fueled with violence.

Ok. It's not that violent. But their is a moment where Dynamite and the threat of explosive death from the hands of the villain are way to extreme for a four year old. Also that same villain takes some swings at Thomas with a boat oar. The songs and sing alongs are great so your kid will probably love that.

Best Thomas movie

This is a thrilling adventure and I wouldn't expect this from a TV show about talking trains. The story is one of the best, the characters are all amazing. The locations and the way they are presented are brilliant and the lighting is simply amazing. The soundtrack is by far the best the series has seen. There aren't many flaws and most plot holes have been filled by explainations that work, like how the ship got into the cavern. The lesson the movie gives children about teamwork is disguised so well that it doesn't interfere with the storys but it can still be seen. There are so many great things about this movie that I can't put it any lower than 5 stars.
