'The Polar Express' Star Tinashe Agrees With Sentiment That The Film Isn't 'Great'

Before making a name for herself in the music world, popular songstress Tinashe was known primarily as an actress, appearing as a motion-capture model in the 2004 animated film The Polar Express (she was just a motion capture model for the character and did not do any voice work).  Now, it appears Tinashe isn't all that fond of the film.

In a tweet posted last Friday (November 6), @sylvsaid posted a caption that read "The Polar Express is a long terrible movie about nothing and I really need y’all to be released from the shackles of thinking it’s great."

Even though she's used as the model for Hero Girl, the co-protagonist in The Polar Express, Tinashe agreed with these sentiments. "I'm literally in it and I kinda agree," she said.  

Written and directed by Robert Zemeckis and starring Tom Hanks, The Polar Express chronicles a young boy who sees a mysterious train en route to the North Pole outside his window and is invited aboard by its conductor. The boy hops onboard, meeting other children as they embark on a journey to meet Santa Claus.

With the holiday season coming soon, The Polar Express is sure to be airing all over the place during the next two months.
