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.

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.

Arthur is the perfect lead for a Christmas film: joyful, innocent, and goofy with a touch of sensitivity and determination. He carries the film into above-average Christmas fare with support from his hilarious English grandpa.

The fact that I preferred Steve's cold hard efficiency over Arthur's well-meaning but bumbling and naive earnestness means something's not quite right with this otherwise decently made animated film.

Christmas movies have been a bit lacking the last few years. Think this one has earned a place in the perennials along with the first two Die Hards and Gremlins.

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.

Surprisingly good. A very new and refreshing story about Christmass which was charming, warm and modern all at the same time.

One of the funniest animations ive ever seen, great jokes which are definitely intended for an adult audience... characters are more developed than most movies ive seen in 2011

A unique take on the Santa story that cleverly contorts it into the realm of realism; the high-tech vs. old school, productivity vs. personal touch themes that arise from this fun setting make the premise even more engaging (and hilarious; Nighy's "back in my day" Grandsanta is a riot). A simple adventure plot is constructed from here with more than enough wacky humour and slapstick to keep you smiling, and with fairly nuanced family character studies thrown in to add some heart too.

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.

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...
