For decades, films based upon the magical and enchanting tradition of Christmas have melted the hearts and inspired a countless number of people from the likes of hilarious disaster-comedies, live-action family heart-warmers and visually stunning animations. However, making critically and financially successful Christmas films within this current generation is often a rather difficult task due to ... read more

"A child's been missed!"

Making a genuinely good, original Christmas movie is a difficult task in this day and age. Added to this, after Fred Claus, The Polar Express, The Santa Clause and other such motion pictures, it seems impossible to put another fresh spin on Santa Claus and his North Pole universe. Enter the British animation studio Aardman (best known for Wallace and Gromit)... read more

Some films are destined to be classics. And while Arthur Christmas is far from a masterpiece, it certainly feels like a movie that could quickly become a Christmas tradition among many families. It's funny, it's cute, it's warm. What more could you ask of a Christmas film?

View all Arthur Christmas reviews
An Aardman production for Sony Pictures Animation, at last reveals the incredible, never-before seen answer to every child's question: 'So how does Santa deliver all those presents in one night?' The answer: Santa's exhilarating, ultra-high-tech operation hidden beneath the North Pole. But at the heart of the film is a story with the ingredients of a Christmas classic - a family in a state of comic dysfunction and an unlikely hero, Arthur, with an urgent mission that must be completed before Christmas morning dawns.

An average movie

“Since I kept hearing some good things about this movie, I was quite eager to check it out. On top of that, I always had a weak spot for the features delivered  by Aardman. Well, eventually, to be honest, even though it was a decent watch, I thought the whole thing was rather disappointing. Basically, it was Aardman's 2nd CGI animated feature after 'Flushed Away' and, once again, I just had a really hard time to care about their tale. At least, this time,  I think they improved on the animation but they took some risks by going for yet another Christmas story and it didn’t really work out, I'm afraid. Obviously, they thought they would be clever by focusing on some parent of Santa Claus but it was actually a rather weak concept which, on top of that, had a already been used at least onc” read more
