Description: The Japanese-made Galaxy Express offers the spectacle of a real locomotive, chugging its way through the solar system. In Willie Wonka fashion, the locomotive guides its passengers into realizing their heart's desires--which of course usually turns out not to be what they've expected. The central character herein is a little boy, who wishes to learn the secret of immortality. He does...and he doesn't like it one bit. Touted as a children's movie, Galaxy Express is grim going at times. Best not to see this film right after the funeral of a loved one.~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide
