This is a simple little film, but it kept me interested. I enjoyed the idea of ninja-like elves helping to make Santa's mission feel like some sort of top-secret military mission, and it's a visually appealing movie.

I just love Arthur as a character.

Arthur Christmas doesn't exactly break any boundaries, but it is coherent and consistent in its themes of inclusiveness and caring.

Arthur Christmas isn't going to end up a Christmas classic... But it's worth seeing this year. It has old-fashioned values with a modern mind-set.

Arthur Christmas' characters have plenty of personality and make the film a really fun watch. It's also short and sweet, with a number of action-packed set-pieces that will keep the younger folk among us occupied for its entirety

Sentimentality is unavoidable as this rollicking adventure comes to an end, but it doesn't force-feed a Christmas message.

It may look like a holiday trifle, but it's still a sleigh ride worth taking.

Don't go expecting a sequel, but do go expecting all the unforced festive spirit you could hope for.

Parents may shed a nostalgic tear or two, while their children can enjoy spotting all the witty visual details.

Aimed squarely at children, but painless to keep grown-ups from checking their watches.
December 14, 2014
It's disarming, imaginative and genuinely funny.
December 14, 2014
The script (co-written by debut feature director Sarah Smith) is fortified with meaning and smarts and plays well for both children and adults.

Arthur Christmas makes a welcome addition to the holiday movie line-up, because it's a movie that one can watch repeatedly without it becoming as stale as last year's fruitcake.
December 14, 2014
The comedy works. But there's not much to the characters that proves memorable. It's not a bad movie, but...
December 14, 2014
An utterly charming Christmas yarn which seems destined to become a holiday staple thanks to its wonderfully detailed animation, abundance of gags and brilliantly drawn characters.
December 14, 2014
Without a loaded cast, or recognizable character name or brand, Arthur Christmas might be overlooked by audiences. Here's hoping that won't be the case. Some Christmas gifts are worth the extra effort.

It occasionally toes the line of manic hyperactivity, but never becomes shrill or too cloyingly sentimental -- or rife with lazy bodily function humor -- as some overeager family fare can be.
