Movie Info

Swifty the Arctic Fox (Jeremy Renner) works in the mailroom of the Arctic Blast Delivery Service, but he has much bigger dreams. He yearns to become a Top Dog, the Arctic's star husky couriers. To prove he can do it, he commandeers one of the sleds and delivers a mysterious package to a secret location. Once there, he stumbles on a hidden fortress overseen by the nefarious Otto Von Walrus (John Cleese). The blubbery evil genius commands an army of oddly polite puffin henchmen. Swifty discovers Otto Von Walrus' villainous plan to drill beneath the snow-packed surface to unleash masses of ancient gas to melt the Arctic and become the world's supreme ruler. To stop this sinister scheme, Swifty enlists the help of his friends: PB (Alec Baldwin), a neurotic polar bear, Lemmy (James Franco), a scatterbrained albatross, Jade Fox (Heidi Klum), a brainy engineer, Leopold (Omar Sy) and Bertha (Heidi Klum), two conspiracy theorist otters and Magda (Anjelica Huston), his curmudgeonly boss.

Critic Reviews for Arctic Dogs

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (5)

There are some wry, self-referential jokes and the animators are good at facial expressions and powdery, polar landscape textures.

November 7, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

It's more like a compendium of familiar ideas bolted together and painted white -- a snow job, in other words.

November 6, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

There's really not much to recommend about this film: the animation lacks texture, the score is overwrought, the plotting is scattershot, and the character design is uninspired.

Top Critic

Lacking much in the way of humor or charm, the film, directed by Aaron Woodley, culminates with the sort of frenetic, action-laden climactic sequence that has become de rigueur for these offerings.

The story is best when it's playful and odd, and only truly pops when Cleese's eccentric supervillain is on-screen. The rest of the time, it's merely a functional series of events.

November 1, 2019 | Full Review…

Even though the values in the film are suitable for all, the "be true to yourself" message has had better vehicles...
