Movie Info & Cast

Synopsis

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.

Quotes

    • [after pulling Swifty out of the snow pile]
    • PB: Swifty? What are you doing here so early?
    • Swifty: What!
    • PB: You are a small arctic fox who was not meant to pull a giant sled with even giant-er packages on it. Are you hearing me?
    • Swifty: What? Yeah every word, come on buddy we've got a pound of fun. Let's go!
    • Swifty: I lost... my pound.
    • PB: What pound?
    • Swifty: The pound I gained to hit the twenty pound minimum to pull the top dog sled!
    • PB: Well you can't fight your metabolism.
    • Swifty: I can and I will put to the test, I'm going to deliver my best, Come on!
    • PB: Swifty, how have I put this repeatably in the past.
    • Swifty: Look out!
    • PB: Oh yes, deliveries have only ever been made by dogs, and you are not a dog.

This movie was slow, unoriginal and boring. Maybe a decent rental but not worth a trip to the movies. We had high hopes for it and it didn’t deliver.

Arctic Dogs is a functional, distracting kids flick that’s only remarkable in how unremarkable it is.

The computer animation proves competent if uninspired, and somehow manages to make even its presumably fail-safe puffins devoid of cuteness.

There’s precious little action, and beavers with Italian accents, weasels with German and French ones (“Vive l’resistence!”) and zero laughs spread over 92 minutes.
