"A serviceable Christmas-themed distraction (...) Frankly, it all seems much too complicated for what it is."  NEU

The Hollywood Reporter
"An unexpected charmer (...) I contains echoes of other seasonal favorites (...) while standing completely on its own (...) [Its story] is perfectly complimented by its visual style"  POS

"The big hitch is that 'Klaus' is rarely laugh-out-loud funny with its paper-thin characters (...) What does work is the snowy, hilly luster of this bygone-era fairy tale environment"  NEU

The Times
"'Klaus' is reasonably well delivered. The highly cartoony visual style is nicely retro and the story’s ending is quite sweet (…) Rating: ★★★ (out of 5)"  POS

"Solid first and third acts can’t disguise a so-so middle section stuffed with conventional story beats (…) Rating: ★★★ (out of 5)"  NEU
