ARTHUR CHRISTMAS (Theatrical Release USA 2011)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.0|5.0 Starsìììì

Arthur Christmas
—computer animated film—plays on a new story that completely works. It presents a retired Santa, a reigning Santa, and the next in line to inherit the occupation all in one setting. The occupation passes down from Father to Son for generations. This movie is entertaining and makes a great child/adult share film for holiday season. The writing is well-done, dialogue well executed, has well-timed sequences. It entertains with well-drawn characters. This is a worthy watch for both time and money investment.
