Take a trip to the North Pole and discover exactly how Santa Claus makes Christmas magic happen every year in this imaginative comedy for the entire family. Produced by Aardman Features in association with Sony Pictures Animation, this fun-filled holiday film introduces viewers to Santa's mischievous son Arthur, who races to complete an important mission in time to ensure that this year's Christmas celebrations will go off without a hitch. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
This is a fine family movie and for those who love Christmas. It is exciting in the way it is photographed and looks great in 2D, even though it is filmed in 3D. It takes it place along side The Polar Express as a modern day Christmas classic. It's directed in a hyper kinetic mode which suits a younger generation who grew up the busy content of video games. So if you are not from that group you might have to fasten your seat belt at times. But in the end its charm wins you over.
I loved Arthur Christmas. It was very funny throughout and absolutely hilarious many times. My 12 year old grandson and I watched it together and we both thought it was well worth the watch. This is one movie I will add to my collection.

When the movie first started, I wasn't too sure, but once the main story line got going, it was great! Lots of action and funny! We laughed a lot. Overall we really enjoyed it. A new Christmas movie for our collection.
A very good family movie with an original story about the advances of modern technology interfering with the importance of the Christmas spirit and the true meaning of being Santa Claus. The movie is lively with lots of action and funny bits that the kids love. In addition the dialogue is witty and script is clever enough for the parents to enjoy as well. A great holiday treat.
