What they say: Arthur Christmas 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 center of the film is a story about 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.
What I say: Over all, this is a fine movie, for children mostly. I didn’t find it to be my normal type of movie, since I am a teenager and all, but my younger brother loved it. It wasn’t too boyish, or even girlish, it was great all the way around for any kid who loves Christmas!
The characters were best part! You had the main character, which is of course Arthur. He reads the letters of the children who have written him, and send back saying that they will get that toy for Christmas. The you have Arthur’s brother, who is trying to become Santa Claus. But the thing is, he doesn’t get the idea of Christmas. Then you have the elf that follows Steve around. That elf acts silly. In the beginning, Steve is reading his message on his phone, and they are ALL FROM THAT ELF! Not to add the elf got him some boxers for Christmas. Then you have Santa, who is lazy! The you have grand-Santa, who is an old man, and remembers doing stuff the old fashion way. Then you have this other elf, who LOVES to wraps stuff! Wraps everything!
The animation is fine, it has the look like the animation in any other Aardmard animation.
I think it is a good movie to watch with children between the ages of 5 – 10. I had fun enjoying it with my brother.
This film is also available on Blu-Ray disc.
