1.0 out of 5 stars Strange, dark and sinister 19 April 2014
By Mrs M
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
'Scary' and uncomfortable for a young toddler, sinister and dark full of manipulation, deceit and confusion - what on earth where the makers thinking??? This is dark, miserable and utterly depressing using the darkest most loathsome aspects of human nature applied to children's train characters - if you want to witness bullying and manipulation in 'the playground' then this is the DVD for you - I have never been so disgusted with a children's programme - which is a shame because my son loves Thomas the Tank Engine - all the others are great, some are a bit preaching or contain some tough lessons but this one is to be avoided completely, it really is that dark.

Here is a short version of the plot. Percy feels rather depressed because he thinks that Thomas doesn't have time for him anymore. But Diesel, Den, Dart, Norman, Paxton, Sidney and Diesel 10 all persuade Percy to be their friend. But Percy doesn't know that they are just plotting to take over the Steamworks!!!!

This is a really exciting film. True, I think Misty Island Rescue is better, but there are rather dark scenes (dark for a HIT Entertainment at least). It includes laughs, evil, and even some mild horror (for three-year-olds).

If only I could watch this in 3D, or even 4D - that would probably make it even better than Misty Island Rescue.

Most things in it are really excellent. Although this is a five-star review, I was disappointed that Flynn didn't run on roads.

I liked Belle and the CGI animation - I think it looks better than that in Misty Island Rescue, and that was better than Hero of the Rails.

I give thumbs up to this.

2.0 out of 5 stars hdtv 6 Oct 2011
By sam
i bought a bluray of this for my 3 yr old who loves thomas,thinking it would be better as i have an hdtv.I was wrong.When it is a bit dark in the film at the diesel works its so grainy that it looks like a pirate copy,and there is some random barely noticeable flashing,but you do notice it.It wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't for the fact that around 60% of the film is in dimly lit and scary diesel places.I have to say i was gutted,it could just be as i have an hdtv,but it's not even 8 months old so i know it isn't the tv going wrong and everything else i play is ok on it.It's not the sellers fault but i just wouldn't recommend if you have an hdtv,you will notice it's shortcomings

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good but prefer Misty Island Rescue 4 Oct 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Excellent quality animation, but storyline not quite as engaging as Misty Island Rescue. My son (aged 6) really enjoyed it though.

4.0 out of 5 stars More Fun On Sodor! 11 July 2014
By Mr. C. Gelderd VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a 2010 CGI feature-length ‘Thomas & Friends’ movie narrated by Michael Angelis with the voices provided by Ben Small, Keith Wickham, Matt Wilkinson, Kerry Shale and Teresa Gallagher.

After a fire stars on the Island of Sodar, Thomas (Small) and Percy (Wickham) race to help and encounter new fire train Belle (Gallagher) whom Thomas takes a shine to straight away. Their friendship soon leads to Percy feeling sad and lonely. As Diesel (Shale) notices this crack in the friendship, he influences Percy to spend more time at the Diesel Works with the Diesel engines. He does so, and is soon influenced and manipulated by Diesel 10 (Wilkinson) who wants to exploit Percy’s good nature for their benefit.

As Diesel 10 uses Percy to get the Diesels in with the Steam-works in a plot to take over the steam engines on the island, Thomas and Belle are unaware of the plot happening behind their back, and with the arrival of new fire truck Flynn (Rupert Degas), Diesel 10 continues his plot.

Only when it is too late does Percy see what has happened, and so swallows his pride to rally Thomas, Belle and the others to confront the Diesels and save the Steamworks from being run amok…

The introduction of wonderfully scary and evil Diesel 10 adds a nice good vs evil theme to this film, with the steam engines going up against the Diesels in a battle for the prestigious Steam-works compared to the dirty, run-down Diesel-works.

A great new fire train, Belle, features here and she is a worthy addition to the team, with lots of great sequences with Thomas that add to the fact you feel so sorry for Percy as he takes centre stage here to simply be isolated, and then manipulated for the Diesels.

Of course, the moral tale of friendship and respect echo here but it’s very well told and narrated, with good effects and great detail in the fire sequences; that classic element of Thomas danger never far away from funny and sweet drama and humour.
