Bought as a xmas present for my niece and nephew but had to check to see if it played 1st lol
I loved it, the animation was superb, the story was cute and warm and endearing and pulled at the heartstrings a way a Xmas movie should.
If your unsure of the plot here is a brief synopsis:
Nicko is a young reindeer who longs to fly just like his dad who is in The Flying Forces for Santa. However, his dreams continue to lead him into problem after problem. After he brings danger upon his whole herd, Nicko sneaks away to find out the unanswered questions about his father and to pursue his dream. Accompanied by a tough, flying squirrel named Julius and musical weasel named Wilma, Nicko embarks on the journey of a lifetime.
I thought it was lovely, it has a wonderful underlying message, believing in yourself and self worth, and not allowing bullies to win and upset you, and i think that is a very important lesson for children to learn.
There are some very scary wolves in here though so be warned, but kids see more violence on tv every day so its nothing too sinister.
All in all, a very enjoyable Christmas film..
