A harmless kids' toon that's probably the least annoying Schneider vehicle in years.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

Will the toddlers in the audience remember Norm's environmental campaign as they grow up? Perhaps.

The Indo-American animation is focused for young audiences, as the story, dialogue and characters are attractive to them, but will be difficult for adults to enjoy. [Full Review in spanish]

A family film that mixes its ecological, environmental message with a familiar self-empowerment lesson is hardly original, yet Norm has oodles of charm, a razor-sharp wit and pacing that should keep even preschoolers attentive.

Neither its animation nor voice performances are particularly memorable, but Norm of the North, especially in its early section set in the Arctic, has its appealing moments.

Has little to recommend it. Padded with dance numbers - two in the first fifteen minutes alone - and montages, the best that can be said is that bad movies like this are important to remind us that the Pixar movies aren't flukes.

Sometimes a film critic has to throw himself or herself on a bomb for the good of the movie-going public.

I really don't have anything good to say about it. I guess congrats for getting a movie made.

November 7, 2017
In an age where even animated flicks are designed for consumption for the junior and senior of our species, this film somehow manages to take the intelligence of children for granted.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

It's a lazy, cheap, nonsensical ploy to separate you from your money.
December 6, 2016
A uniquely charmless motion picture, owing in no small part to the hideous, "attach a corpse to a car battery" quality of the herky-jerky animation.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/10

If you spent 86 minutes crawling through a snowbank while clad only in a bathing suit, it would probably be a more rewarding experience than sitting through Norm of the North.
Full Review | Original Score: 72/100
August 16, 2016
Norm of the North is a rancid excursion into well-intentioned animated chaos that proves to be an excruciating endurance test no one of sound mind or body should ever attempt to watch, and that includes their children.
Full Review | Original Score: 0.5/4
August 2, 2016
With its strangely adult plot about global warming and real estate development and its mediocre animation style, Norm of the North is one to skip.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
July 11, 2016
Norm of the North is nothing but wasted potential.
April 15, 2016
When stacked up against the Disneys, Pixars and Illuminations of the world, this comparatively modest, lower-tier family film hailing from Lionsgate is middling and kind of lame.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
March 28, 2016
All in all, Norm of the North is one big ball of mess. Uninvolving, unfunny and visually inferior to its peers, this is a straight-to-DVD production at best. How it managed to sneak its way onto the big-screen, we will never know.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
March 23, 2016
In spite of the positive message on the preservation of the wild, the film falls short in the supposedly comedically inclined moments.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
March 20, 2016
Bland, derivative family entertainment Norm Of The North merely underlines the craft and imagination that goes into the Pixar titles.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
March 20, 2016
Plays like a bargain-bin mashup of tropes lifted from Happy Feet, Madagascar, Ice Age et al.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
