This movie stars Jack Palance and Christopher Walken as father and son. Both have played 1-time only Batman villains responsible for the "birth" of original Batman villains. Palance was in weekly series, Batman (1966) where he was responsible for The Joker. Walken was in Batman Returns (1992) where he was responsible for Catwoman. See more »
I think anytime you cast Jack Palance as Christopher Walken's father, throw in Glenn Close as the wife and Haley 'I see Dead People' Osment's kid sister into the mix-you have a pretty inspired set of castings.
I enjoyed also how the two kids in the first couple shows were brought back here-so nice to see the girl as a nurse and the boy as a young farmer. It's believable and well done, it's also the only things that either actor had done for some time, the transition to adulthood from kid actor is notoriously hard.
Some of the snowstorm contrivances were sheer Hollywood-but don't be fooled, there's a lotta heart and fine acting to go around here. The show never loses sight of it's ideals or center.
