Stewart provides contemporary Performance,
This review is from: A Christmas Carol [VHS]  (VHS Tape)
Well, what can be said?
To begin with, several reviews have already bemoaned the fact that Stewart doesn't 'fit' with their idea of how Scrooge should look.
Perhaps not, but this was an attempt an contemporizing this classic, and Stewart pulls this off superbly.
In a nutshell, forget the creaky old 'classic' versions (and I'll get shot down in flames for saying that!), and go for this lavishly stylish production.
The whole atmosphere of this film exudes the magic of Christmas Spirit, whilst the directing is tightly-polished enough to ensure that your whole family will quite happily watch this year-after-year.
Don't hesitate - buy it now!
