Arthur Christmas (2011) (English)

From the moment i saw the teaser of 'Arthur Christmas',i wanted to watch the movie because of the interesting concept.So i was waiting to watch it.And i watched it yesterday.Take this review as a warning.
'Arthur Christmas' tells the story of Arthur,the son of the Santa Claus.And showed it how Santa actually delivers millions of gifts all over the world in every single christmas night without a failure.Santa lives with his family in North pole and things his younger son Arthur is good for nothing,but when he fails Arthur and grandpa santa goes out to solve that issue.
Now this story and concept looks awesome and interesting when you read it in an article or as a synopsis.But in real it's one of the most boring animation movie i have ever seen in my life.I couldn't believe Sony pictures who came up with 'Cloudy with the chance of meatballs' came up with something like this.It's not entertaining,not even for a second.It won't make you think what will happen next.It will only make you think,when is this going to be over?.An amazing concept with a ruined screenplay.
So my verdict is 'watch it at your own risk'.I don't really think children will like it either.
