“The 3D, CG-animated family comedy Arthur Christmas, an Aardman production for Sony Pictures Animation, at last 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 heart of the film is a story with the ingredients of a Christmas classic – 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.”
I will admit, it has been awhile since I have seen a really good Christmas movie in the theaters. Most of them the last few years have been, in my opinion, pretty lame. I have been waiting for a great Christmas movie to recommend. I am happy to say that I really enjoyed Arthur Christmas.
This movie was very funny. I do not expect anything less from Aardman productions. Their films are normally pretty hilarious. This movie definitely put me in the Christmas spirit (even though it is before Thanksgiving).
All of the characters are pretty great but my favorite was the gift-wrapping elf, Bryony. She was hilarious. It is possible to wrap presents with only 3 pieces of tape. I also liked Aardman’s take on how Santa delivers all the gifts in one night. The first few minutes of the film are very creative.
Arthur Christmas is a great family film and the perfect movie to see this Christmas.
