A wonderful adventure with great Christmas spirit.

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?

Complicated but heartwarming plot

“'Arthur Christmas' has a complicated but heartwarming plot. The animation (another CGI film by Aardman after 'Flushed Away') and the score are perfect. The animation looks quite good, the score is absolutely beautiful. The plot seems sort of complicated but it's heartwarming and entertaining for kids!” read more

Review of Arthur Christmas

“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?

Aardman presents a much more modern version of Santa Claus then what audiences are used to. A small army of elves are deposited into towns via the S-1; a giant spaceship of a sled that blends into the sky as to avoid suspicion. The elves, like spies break into people's houses to plant presents for all the nice children (and Santa is in charge of laying a single present under the tree of select houses).

As expected Christmas Eve goes without a hitch...until it's discovered an hour later that a child ” read more

When IMDb and Rotten Tomatoes disagree (65 movies items)

"Rotten Tomatoes: 92% IMDb: 7.1 Difference- 21 Another Aardman Studios film! Poor Aardman, I still like your films! Well, to be honest, 'Arthur Christmas' didn't neccessarily score BADLY with IMDb raters, but it received pretty massive acclaim last year! Once again, hype probably ruined it for many. "
