November 7, 2017
In an age where even animated flicks are designed for consumption for the junior and senior of our species, this film somehow manages to take the intelligence of children for granted.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

It's a lazy, cheap, nonsensical ploy to separate you from your money.
December 28, 2016
A harmless kids' toon that's probably the least annoying Schneider vehicle in years.

December 6, 2016
A uniquely charmless motion picture, owing in no small part to the hideous, "attach a corpse to a car battery" quality of the herky-jerky animation.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/10

If you spent 86 minutes crawling through a snowbank while clad only in a bathing suit, it would probably be a more rewarding experience than sitting through Norm of the North.

Norm of the North is a rancid excursion into well-intentioned animated chaos that proves to be an excruciating endurance test no one of sound mind or body should ever attempt to watch, and that includes their children.
Full Review | Original Score: 0.5/4
August 2, 2016
With its strangely adult plot about global warming and real estate development and its mediocre animation style, Norm of the North is one to skip.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5

Norm of the North is nothing but wasted potential.
April 15, 2016
When stacked up against the Disneys, Pixars and Illuminations of the world, this comparatively modest, lower-tier family film hailing from Lionsgate is middling and kind of lame.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

All in all, Norm of the North is one big ball of mess. Uninvolving, unfunny and visually inferior to its peers, this is a straight-to-DVD production at best. How it managed to sneak its way onto the big-screen, we will never know.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
March 23, 2016
In spite of the positive message on the preservation of the wild, the film falls short in the supposedly comedically inclined moments.

Will the toddlers in the audience remember Norm's environmental campaign as they grow up? Perhaps.
March 20, 2016
Bland, derivative family entertainment Norm Of The North merely underlines the craft and imagination that goes into the Pixar titles.

March 20, 2016
Plays like a bargain-bin mashup of tropes lifted from Happy Feet, Madagascar, Ice Age et al.

March 18, 2016
The eco-message is rather vague, the villain not particularly villainous, and the jokes fall flat.

It's all fine without being too exciting.

Cheap and cheerless, Norm's appeal melts faster than the polar ice.

Norm of the North doesn't even make the grade in terms of animation, which is shoddy throughout.

The eco friendly message gets lots in bad taste jokes and gags. [Full review in Spanish]

For an idea of how little Norm of the North can do with its material, consider a scene where a polar bear visits a high-end sushi restaurant. And then watch it go nowhere, like an ice floe broken adrift. Kind of like the whole movie.
