Arthur Christmas – Movie Review
Christmas 21st Century style. Santas operation is now computerized and modernized. The sleigh is replaced by a UFO looking space ship that deploys elves to fill the stockings and deliver the presents. Thus, leaving Santa basically becoming a ceremonial figurehead. Santa’s oldest son, Steve, is set to become the next Santa but his younger brother Arthur is actually the one with the Christmas Spirit!
This Christmas adventure follows Arthur, GrandSanta and a spirited Elf named Byrony as they try to deliver a lost present to one little girl.
Funny and entertaining for kids and adults alike
Some of the jokes are obviously geared toward the adult viewers including several jokes about alcohol. One in particular was probably not needed as it referred to a little girl becoming an alcoholic by the age nine. The story also seemed a little long at time.
