Summary: The story is about Arthur Christmas is given an important task on Christmas Eve that must be completed by morning. With his family ties, the secret to how Santa completes his one-night delivery is also revealed in the high-tech North Pole base of operations. A heart warming movie with a good message and good story.
Summary: This movie was nothing special. Just another Christmas movie. It has high praise on many sites, including this one. I just dont see it. I mean it is worth the watch if you are looking to watch a bunch of Christmas movies around the holidays, but it is not one that will stand up for any amount of time. Its silly and just stretched thin. My 7 yr old was not a fan either.
Excerpt: Arthur Christmas may not be destined to become a christmas classic, but it sure has the potential. A fun and nice original look at the most favored holiday of the year. Sony's blu shines with a pristine image and outstanding audio. A nice sack of extra's makes this one a new fan favorite and family fun.
Excerpt: I really enjoyed the movie. I watched it twice and even enjoyed it a second time I gave the PQ a 4.5 cause I thought it was lacking a little bit but was still a great PQ experience. As for Audio I did not find any flaws at all and it sounded great.
Excerpt: Some films are destined to be classics. And while Arthur Christmas is far from a masterpiece, it certainly feels like a movie that could quickly become a Christmas tradition among many families. It's funny, it's cute, it's warm. What more could you ask of a Christmas film? Aardman presents a much more modern version of Santa Claus then what audiences are used to.
Summary: Arthur Christmas, the youngest son of the current Santa, works on the mailing department of the North Pole. He does not ever experience the actual delivery of gift during midnights of Christmas; but when the operation misses to deliver a gift to a kid, Arthur would do whatever it takes to make sure every kid in the world would receive a gift from Santa.
Summary: As a fan of Aardman ever since Wallace and Gromit, I was interested from the get go into seeing Arthur Christmas. Apart from it dragging slightly in the middle, Arthur Christmas was a wonderful film. The animation is absolutely breathtaking, it is all very colourful and beautifully modelled, and the soundtrack is so rousing it makes you want to get out your favourite Christmas Carols/Songs CD and sing along afterwards.
Summary: Bringing an unconventional twist to the 2011 holiday season is Aardman's 'Arthur Christmas', re-imagining Santa's Christmas operation as a high-tech mission, his wife and two sons employed in delivering the festive season successfully. While his eldest, Steve, handles the reigns in the North Pole headquarters, young Arthur is left responding to the many letters received from children around the world; that is, until a present is mistakenly undelivered.
