Shiver me timbers. Surprises await Thomas and his friends as they dig up their most daring adventure yet. Unearthing an old pirate ship, Thomas is on the hunt for Sodor's lost treasure. ... See full summary »
Thomas the Tank Engine's feature film debut follows Thomas and Mr. Conductor (Alec Baldwin) as they cross between the real world and the fictional Island of Sodor, in an attempt to recover lost gold dust.
Thomas leaves Sodor to fulfil his dream of seeing the world. This heroic quest takes Thomas across deserts, through jungles and over dangerous mountains as he travels across five continents seeing sights he has never seen before.
When the Fat Controller sends Thomas to work at the Blue Mountain Quarry, Thomas spots an engine he has never seen before trying to hide. Determined to get to the bottom of the mystery, Thomas tracks down and befriends Luke, who tells Thomas he is hiding because he did something so bad, he could be sent away from the Island of Sodor forever. Thomas does not believe this and sets off on a journey to discover the truth behind the story of the poor runaway engine. On the way, he learns of engines brought to Sodor from faraway lands and of an accident at Brendam Docks where an engine fell into the sea. But only when he has learned every piece of the story, can Thomas convince his new friend that there is no reason to hide.Written by
Read this review, the other kid cant seem to grasp the concept of story ideas. If you want to start watching Thomas movies, this one's great. The voice acting gives the narrow gauge engines more character, and new kid Winston sounds fitting. The story is something i cant go into, because i didn't mark for spoilers, but I'll say this: It's okay. Sharron Miller did fantastic with this movie, and it may be her best Thomas work. The return of the Skarloey railway as the Blue Mountain quarry is welcome, however there was no formal introduction the the quarry. It's just there. As Thomas CGI songs go, this one's song is fantastic. The look of the returning and new characters is great, and the did a great job on engines such as Rheneas, who had a lot of weathering on his original model. Overall, watch this movie if you like Thomas. You won t regret it.
