Review Of : Arthur Christmas

Bookmark and Share

Just watched "ARTHUR CHRISTMAS" last night. (:

Directed by Sarah Smith.

Voiced by James McAvoy, Hugh Laurie, Jim Broadbent, Bill Nighy, Imelda Staunton, and Ashley Jensen.


This Christmas movie answers every child‟s question how can Santa get around the whole world in just one night? The answer is a gloriously technically advanced North Pole operation, featuring an army of one million field elves, a vast supersonic 'sleigh' and a huge control center under the ice of the North Pole. But even the most high-tech operation has a margin of error... When the gift delivery to just one child in six hundred million is missed, Santa and his super-capable son Steve deem it an "acceptable margin of error". But Arthur Christmas, the misfit youngest son can't bear it. In a crazy rookie mission he sets out to get the last present half way around the globe in the two hours before Christmas dawns. His comical adventure reunites the dysfunctional Santa family and saves the future of Christmas itself.


A very funny & entertaining movie. 

Simple storyline. It's kind of like those  films which a classic story is then improvised to adapt with our modern world. (but never gets old. :p)
Hilarious plot.  . ( Watch it & you will know. ;) ) 
Animation was good since it was a production from Aardman Animations which also did  Flushed Away and Wallace & Gromit movies.

The film really brings up the "Christmas-y mood".

Although I did not watch it in 3D, but I think it looks really good in 3D. 
(the flying scenes/the sceneries/the Christmas decor/etc.)

All in all, if you want a good movie to fit the Christmas season with laughter ( like I said, it was hilarious) , watch this! :D

My Rating?

Plot : 4/5
Storyline : 3.75/5
Animation** : 4/5 
Music** : 4/5 
OVERALL : 8/10.*
