From the Academy Award nominated team that brought you Jimmy Neutron, comes the first-ever 3D holiday IMAX film, Santa Vs. The Snowman. Santa vs. The Snowman tells the story of a lonely Snowman who at first is swept away by the magical wonders of Santa's Village, only to ultimately wage war on Santa because he's jealous of all the attention Santa gets during Christmas time. An epic-scale polar war develops. The hilarious battle features such holiday defence mechanisms as hot chocolate squirt guns, giant Igloo Robot Walkers and even a 50-foot tall toy soldier manned by Santa himself. --… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Sweet-natured fun for the very young."
‑ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
"The action sequences are fun and reminiscent of combat scenes from the Star Wars series."
‑ Matt Weitz, Dallas Morning News
"A bit of kid friendly seasonal cheer that is refreshingly without the usual lashings of schmaltz."
‑ Natasha Aitken, Empire Magazine
"one twisted, hilarious and visually stunning IMAX 3D short film that could stand toe-to-toe with the wackiest episode of South Park (minus the vulgarity)"
‑ Willie Waffle, WaffleMovies.com
"A fun piece of on-the-edge filmmaking."
‑ Jill Jess-Cahir, Sacramento Bee
"Oedekerk ... and his team have taken the traditional animation techniques to another level -- creating snowflakes that seem to fall into the audience -- and they pull the viewers into the film."
‑ Catherine Foster, Boston Globe
"The movie has an avalanche of eye-popping visual effects."
‑ Donald Liebenson, Chicago Tribune
"Fluffy, schizophrenic (there's liberal borrowing from both Care Bears and The Empire Strikes Back) and oddly annoying."
‑ Arthur Salm, San Diego Union-Tribune
"Odds are that your family will enjoy "Santa vs. the Snowman," an oddball animated Christmas tale in IMAX."
‑ Linda Cook, Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)
"An entertaining kids' diversion."
‑ Marjorie Baumgarten, Austin Chronicle
"Harmless entertainment for kids and just smart enough to appeal to parents."
‑ John Monaghan, Detroit Free Press
"It is best appreciated as an immersion in a three-dimensional toyland outfitted with enough whimsical gadgetry to fill a thousand playrooms."
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times
"A mildly diverting seasonal entry that should amuse the small fry while giving their parents a couple of chuckles and a few perplexing moments."
‑ Robert W. Butler, Kansas City Star
"This film is a tongue-in-cheek story about a nameless Snowman at the North Pole who declares war on Santa because of jealousy."
‑ Vince Koehler, Entertainment Spectrum
"Lacks ambition and wit."
‑ Shlomo Schwartzberg, Boxoffice Magazine
