This DVD is perfect for the child who loves Thomas. Story line not too difficult for young children

The previous CGI Thomas film is probably my 4 year old son's favourite, so I was expecting him to enjoy this new one too.
In fact both my son and my six year old daughter love it. There's a bit more excitement and action in this new film than in the previous one which is no bad thing.
The little book of the story included in the case is a nice bonus as they both demand to hear it before going to bed after having seen the film.
Otherwise the bonuses on the disc itself (the film weighs in at around an hour) are pretty skimpy:
- a sing-along version of the main song (which gets my kids dancing like lunatics)
- a 3 minute documentary similar to that on the first film (which the kids enjoy)
- a 'game' which literally last about 30 seconds and is always the same. The pay-off is a bonus sing-along song which doesn't feature in the film (which gets my kids doing another lunatic dance routine)
In any case, if your kids like the CGI Thomas TV series and the first film they will love this one. It's certainly the new 'best film ever' in my household.

Opening with a decidedly ropey Pirates of the Caribbean-style score, Misty Island Rescue is pretty much as self-explanatory and easy to follow as it sounds. Narration is provided by Michael Angelis (sounds more like Bernard Hill than Ringo Starr) and the CGI is to a decent standard. 60 minutes may sound short for a film but I think anything longer and children might lose interest in what is quite a slender storyline.

The opening of the story concerns the building of a new Search & Rescue Centre on Sodor. Following the loss of their supply of Jobi wood due to rash action on behalf of Diesel, Thomas is rewarded with a trip to the mainland to see the Search & Rescue Centre there. Needless to say, things don't go well and Thomas finds himself adrift and eventually stranded on the mysterious Misty Island. Soon, the Fat Controller (I'm surprised in these PC times that they are still allowed to call him that) and the rest of the Sodor engines realise that Thomas is missing and they set about rescuing him but not before Thomas has made some new friends and discovered a new supply of Jobi wood.

One of the main themes of Misty Island Rescue is decision-making, both good and bad. Thomas is rewarded early on for his good decision-making when he saves Diesel and this then becomes his mantra throughout the remainder of the story. Despite ending up stranded as a result of a bad decision, Thomas soon recovers his confidence when he meets up with the "logging loco's" Dash, Bash and Ferdinand who, seemingly, were banished for being too playful. This also reinforces the secondary theme of Misty Island Rescue: usefulness. Diesel is teased by Thomas for not being as useful as a "steamy", Thomas is rewarded for being "The Most Really Useful" engine and so on.

What can I say about this dvd. My son who is two and a half lives for 'Thomas the Tank Engine' and when we purchased this dvd he watched it about 7 times in a row. Great story line with loads of new characters. He is interactive with the dvd calling out all their new names when they get into scrapes and all in all loves this dvd. Definetly one to buy for a son who loves 'Thomas'.

Bought this for Thomas mad 4 year old son for xmas, he was delighted with it and we've had it on at least twice a day since xmas, he was pleased as it has his new favourite engines in Bash Dash and Ferdinand. Also good as Misty Island has been mentioned on the Thomas episodes on telly this explains where Misty Island is and why the engines are there(they are a bit naughty).Also good as the DVD includes a book of the story to read at bedtime. He Also got a Misty Island playset so has been acting out the scenes from the film!

I got this dvd from my big brother, for my 4th birthday.
It is the 'new style' Thomas animation, with moving faces and different voices, but we both really like it.
My brother is 7 and my big sister, who is 10, has also watched it and enjoyed it.
The new characters are really good, we like Bash, Dash and Ferdinand a lot. They are very funny.
