Beyond the approachable storytelling, fun cast, and revisionist mythology, however, lies the stunning craftsmanship of the animation itself.

Instead, it's a clever, not-too-sentimental Hatfields v McCoys take on the legend of Santa Claus.

While Klaus has a number of the same faults you'll find in a number of run-of-the-mill animated family movies . . . , more animated works could stand to take a cue from its visual creativity.

A cut above the average seasonal tale due to its impressive cast and visual inventiveness, this film is full of unexpected references which will entertain older viewers but don't get in the way of the plot.

Essentially a heartwarming tale of a millennial entrepreneur disrupting the status quo through social enterprise, Klaus is a pure pleasure to watch.
December 7, 2019
Although Klaus takes a while for its story to get interesting, it is saved by its breathtaking animation and emotional message at its core.
December 6, 2019
Its tempo is uneven, and not all characters convincing, yet Klaus relies mostly on storytelling and a back-to-basics visual style to achieve its aim rather than marketing sensibilities.

The wonderful Rashida Jones voices a teacher who could become a love interest for Jesper. And any movie that casts Norm Macdonald as a cynical boat captain who sounds exactly like Norm MacDdnald is all right by me.

The film version of a cup of hot chocolate after a bitterly cold day.

December 1, 2019
This unique take on the origins of Santa Claus examines the jolly old elf not as a literal person with magical powers, but as an idea of the spirit of giving, a fact that will likely go over many young heads but will hit adults square in the heart.
