Not as bad as many people say it is
14 January 2017 | by l-62911See all my reviews

Well, now that I've got that travesty known as Thomas & The Tragic Failroad out of the way, I've decided I might as well review all the direct to DVD specials that came out afterwards starting with Calling All Engines, the first of these many specials to be released.

And while a lot of people have thrown mouldy bananas, broken TV's, basically everything but the kitchen sink at this special, and given it a lot of crap, I actually found this to be not as bad as many fans has said it is.

Yes, I do agree it's odd to see Diesel 10 be nice and yes there was no need to put those educational segments in (A lesson which HIT thankfully learned afterwards), but this was a good special. Obviously it's not meant to be taken as a classic like say Citizen Kane (yes that does sound retarded) but it's a neat little special with a decent enough story.

Diesel 10 and Lady are in this but thankfully are given much smaller roles. (Still weird to see Diesel 10 being friendly though, it's like WHA?) And there were a couple of funny moments here and there. The model work is good for what it is, nothing groundbreaking but still done nice and the narration by (everybody's favourite or at that's what I think he is, yes hit me with a frying pan already) Michael Angelis is good.

So yes, don't have too much to say about Calling All Engines. Certainly isn't the best special but it's a fine way to burn 60 minutes of your time off.
