This is a fun Christmas movie with a nice, original script. There is a nice range of actors who do the voice work in this film. There are some funny moments as well in this story. I would recommend this fun movie.

Not bad for a Christmas movie. Usually they are pretty generic and boring. At least this was something new and interesting, but in the end, still predictable. Some of the stuff on the sled felt stressful, and not really in a good way. Also I don't quite understand what the message it. "Technology is evil"? You can tell it was written by people afraid of change. The way Steve was doing things was a lot more efficient and he should be applauded, not made out to be somewhat of a villain.

The film is so good-natured that it's easy to ignore its sentimentality.

This all star cast led, James Bond style movie is crammed so full of cheesy corny moments I felt bloated and ill. Failed to live up to the hype.

You know you have a problem when every supporting character is more interesting than the titular one. What I did enjoy was its humour and relentlessly over-the-top spirit, endowing an otherwise typical affair with an extravagantly festive edge. Yey !

An undeniably warm and charming childrens movie. Well animated, well voiced, with plenty of silliness for the little'uns and plenty of sly, fleeting one-lines for the big'uns! Entertaining.

Beautiful animation and cute. I was put off by the alien-like space ship delivery system using a super futuristic high tech explanation. The extended Santa family was also a very odd addition. Son Arthur was a sweet sometimes bumbling character with the best of intentions. His brother more of a military man. A feeble absentminded Santa. And an out of touch old retired Grandpa Santa. Strange cast of characters indeed. Sometimes funny, and entertaining but a quite unconventional Christmas story.

I'm a sucker for Christmas flicks but this is totally charmless, humorless and full of unlikable characters.

The obligatory children's-film family-conflict here is -annoyingly recognisably voiced- aristocrats arguing over the succession of a multi-national. It's a militaristic combination of NASA, Amazon and the sacred mosque (https://youtu.be/roowHfnpmb8) staffed by dilligent, hardworking elves who -obviously- can't do anything without their masters. Despite pretending to be all Christmas/family sentimentality the winner is the one who helps them reach "100% efficiency!" -the true meaning of...

It was a good movie. Obviously it was made for kids but are watchable for adults. Why? It had jokes which many movies don't have these days. It was really funny. Especially the part when I saw these words on a sled - "Chimney lub". I was laughing my ass off at that. Adults will get a point of majority jokes there.

A really cute Christmas movie with fun voice acting from great stars such as Jim Broadbent, James McAvoy, Bill Nighy and Hugh Laurie. My only complaint about this movie is the over-use of the hyper militarized elves that have been done before in other animated films to show how high tech and subversive the Operation Christmas can be. Granted, it was quite funny at times. I really loved the gift wrapping elf, she was great and the crazy old Grandsanta. A cute film for sure for the holidays.

Well, this old-school, optimistic and good-hearted animation fails at almost every point -- from the lack of charisma of the main character, silly, just too silly, to the completely lazy and uneven script. Come on, Aardman, come on...

Instant Christmas classic! Arthur Christmas is a much needed supplement to the very weak genre of Christmas films. A good and sweat story with beautiful animations.
