|Jim Carrey as the grumpy Mr. Scrooge|
Visually, the film's animation is nothing to scorn at either. Much of the characters, the backgrounds and lighting is accurately spaced, colored and shaded. Perhaps the most colorful spectacle is the transition between the spirits who visit Scrooge during his sleep. But what's extremely odd is how all the animated characters in this movie look like the actors who give them their voice; especially Scrooge! Look closely when he's on screen; Scrooge at the current time, looks like a weathered Jim Carrey and the younger version of Scrooge looks like Carrey as he is now. I'm curious if the animators knew this while making the film.
|Carrey also plays the Ghost of Christmas Present|
Overall Zemeckis' take on Dickens' christmas carol is visually intriguing and has a great voice cast. All the same, there are some elements in this film that are darker than usual and that’s puzzling especially for Disney.
