With a fantastic and classically-trained British cast including Hugh Laurie, Jim Broadbent, Imelda Staunton and James McAvoy, you *believe*. There's a jolt of US paranoia, but fortunately, reality is quickly explained away. Most beautiful moment for me was the first meeting with the reindeer, and although disappointed that they ignored the real North Pole as being in Canada, they showcased a Canadian landmark in a very inventive way.
I'll definitely be seeking out more work by this director.
I loved everything about this movie. The animation is bright and beautiful, the script is witty, the pacing is quick, and it all ends happily. Children will love seeing Santa, the reindeer, and sleigh (even though he usually drives a solar-powered spacecraft aided by a NASA-like control room manned by elves) and adults will laugh nonstop at the very funny dialogue that combines tradition values with modern technology. Turn on the subtitles to catch them all.
The British cast headed by James McAvoy, Bill Nighy, Hugh Laurie, and Jim Broadbent is outstanding and I was left with a big smile on my face. Recommended!

We also have a hundreds (thousands?) of elves working for this family of Clauses. They are working as "soldiers" i.e. deliverers of the gifts to the children of the world (in a rapid, secret agent style, they have about 14 - 18 seconds per household to pass all the obstacles: noisy toys, dogs, parrots, parents who are not sleeping yet etc. and place gifts under the tree) and also as present wrappers and co-ordinators in a control centre (making sure delivery operation runs smoothly), etc.
The story told in the movie is basically about Steve's mission failing to deliver one present (a pink bicycle for a little girl Gwen Hines, who lives in Cornwall, England) and Grand Santa's and Arthur's wild ride in the old sleigh (with a stowaway elf) across the continents, oceans, globe (yes, of course, they do not ask for directions!Read more ›
